The RILEM flagship publication is “Materials and Structures / Matériaux et Constructions” (M&S). Since 2006, M&S is published by Springer. It is a leading international journal, publishing results of current research on the properties and performance of building and structural materials, standardisation of test methods and the application of research results. Another scientific journal created by RILEM in 1999, Concrete Science & Engineering, is now included in M&S. In 2016, RILEM launched its own Open Access journal RILEM Technical Letters.

Materials and Structures Journal

In 2006, Springer became the publisher of Materials and Structures / Matériaux et Constructions (ISSN: 1359-5997), the scientific journal of RILEM published since 1968 (55th volume in 2022, 6 issues per year).

Materials and Structures / Matériaux et Construction, ISSN 1359-5997


RILEM Technical Letters

RILEM launched in March 2016 a new Open Access journal: RILEM Technical Letters. The journal is devoted to disseminating most breakthrough and up-to-date contributions in the field of construction materials science and is published as a Diamond Open Access journal available online free of charge. 

RILEM Technical Letters, ISSN 2518-0231 


Concrete Science and Engineering Journal

In 1998, RILEM Publications S.A.R.L. created a new scientific journal, Concrete Science and Engineering (CSE) with a team including Suru Shah (Editor in Chief), Hans Reinhardt and Francis Young (Associate Editors).

With its 4th volume published in 2002 (4 issues per year), CSE became rapidly a reknown journal, starting with thematic issues (Durability Mechanics of Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) of concrete, March 2002).

In 2002, Concrete Science and Engineering was included in Materials and Structures / Matériaux et Constructions, for a wider dissemination and promotion of corresponding advances in materials science.

Concrete Science and Engineering, ISSN 1295-2826 (Vol. 1 to 4, 1999 to 2002 available online)
