The Journal of Infrastructure Systems will publish cross-disciplinary papers about methodologies for monitoring,
evaluating, expanding, repairing, replacing, financing, or otherwise sustaining the civil infrastructure.
The infrastructure supporting human activities includes complex and interrelated physical, social, ecological,
economic, and technological systems such as transportation, energy production and distribution; water resources
management; waste management; facilities supporting urban and rural communities; communications; sustainable
resources development; and environmental production. Increasingly, inter- and multidisciplinary expertise is
needed not only to design and build these systems, but to manage and sustain them as well. Typical management
problems are fraught with uncertain information, multiple and conflicting objectives, and sometimes numerous
and conflicting constituencies. Solutions are both complex and cross-disciplinary in nature and require the
thoughtful integration of sound engineering judgment, economic flexibility, and institutional forbearance.
Papers considered for publication must contain a clear and well-defined engineering component and
make a contribution to the art and science related to infrastructure systems. ISSN: 1076-0342
