Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
Bridge Engineering is a specialty section of Frontiers in Built Environment. The section aims to publish high-quality papers on all subjects of bridge engineering, from conceptual design to service life. The main topics are bridge design, bridge construction, bridge maintenance, management, repair and strengthening of existing bridges. Bridge aesthetics, social impact and life-cycle performance of bridges are also covered by the journal. All types of bridges are considered: highway, railway, pedestrian, etc.
The section seeks to bridge the gap between researchers and professionals in the area of bridge engineering. Therefore, scientific, technical and practical papers are considered for publication; the only requirement being that the subject represents an advance in the state-of-the-art and current knowledge. The aim of the section is to provide a forum of discussion between academia and professional experts in the field of bridge engineering. Papers considered for publication are original papers that provide advanced knowledge as:
- A contribution to the theory or practice of bridge engineering from design, analysis, construction methods and/or service life performance.
- A state-of-the-art work on any topic related to bridge engineering.
- A case study of application to a significant bridge structure, describing the novel techniques applied in its design, construction or maintenance, and the knowledge acquired that can be useful in further applications.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Bridge Engineering, where they are peer reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.

Bridge Engineering welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Bridge Engineering, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Bridge Engineering will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Built Environment.
