The Institution’s member journal, Civil Engineering, will move to a digital-only version from the August issue this year.
The May 2020 print issue, already in circulation, will be the last print issue until further notice. This reflects the worldwide constraints in print production and distribution. ICE Publishing has also suspended the printing of the 18 print titles within its portfolio.
ICE members currently receive four issues of Civil Engineering journal as part of their membership benefits. In order to adapt to the changing publishing landscape, issues will cease being printed and instead will be accessible, more immediately, in digital format only. This change will take effect from July, with the first impacted issue being the August 2020 issue.
Mike Cookson, General Manager of ICE Publishing said:
“We recognise this is a significant change for our members, and we thank them for their understanding.”
“While this change has been predominantly driven by worldwide constraints within print production and distribution supply chains, it has also enabled us to improve our publishing technology and to reduce the institution’s carbon footprint. We will continue to monitor the situation, and we hope that members will continue to enjoy reading the journal’s professional updates and peer-reviewed papers that both contribute so much to continuing professional development.”
Civil Engineering is available online to all members on the ICE Virtual Library, via MyICE. Members also receive an exclusive digital version which replicates the page-turning feeling of the printed journal. Digital issues will soon be added to ICE Virtual Learning Hub. We will let you know when they become available there.
