International journal of pavement research and technology
The objective of the International Journal of Pavement Research and Technology is to provide a platform to promote exchange of ideas among pavement engineering communities around the world. The journal attempts to disseminate information on all aspects of pavement engineering and technology developed through research and development and practical experiences. The journal is published bi-monthly, in January, March, May, July, September, and November each year (six issues in each volume). Contributions in the form of paper and technical notes are considered for publication.
