Everyone is welcome to submit a research paper on a tall building related topic. Authors are asked to submit their manuscripts to firstname.lastname@example.org
Upon receiving the manuscript, the Co-Chief Editor assigns an appropriate member of the Editorial Board to review the manuscript. When the manuscript is accepted for the refereeing process, the Co-Chief Editor identifies three competent reviewers who are acknowledged experts in the given subject for extensive peer review. The reviewer’s names will remain anonymous to the authors of the manuscript. The Co-Chief Editor informs authors about the feedback received from the peer reviewer. Only those receiving favorable recommendations from the peer reviewers will be accepted for publication.
It may be required to make revisions of the manuscript based on the feedback of the peer reviewers. The Co-Chief Editor reserves the right to adjust the author’s style according to certain standards of uniformity.
Please consider the following style guide requirements when preparing a paper:

They should be listed at the last part of the manuscript, arranged in alphabetical order by the last name of the first author. References should be listed by following the format of the examples below;

Book: Bendat, J. and Piersol, A. (1986) Random data analysis and mesurment procedures. John Wiley & Son, New York, USA.
Proceedings: Tamura, Y. (2003) “design issues for tall buildings from acceleration to damping -Tribute to Hatsuo Ishizaki and Vinod Modi-.” Proc. The 11th International Conference on Wind Engineering, INV.W2, Lubbock, Texas, USA, June, pp. 81~114.
Tables should be numbered consecutively and each must be given a short caption. They should be referred to in the text as Table 1, etc. All figures, including photographs, charts, and diagrams, should be provided in camera-ready form, and must be suitable for reproduction without modification.

The revised versions must be submitted as soon as possible; revised manuscripts returned after four months will be considered as new submissions subject to full reassessment. After the final acceptance of the manuscript, a MS-Word file should be submitted.
A layout proof will be sent to the first named author and should be returned within one week of receipt. Corrections should be restricted to typesetting errors in this stage.
Feedback queries should be answered in full. Please note that authors are urged to check their proofs carefully before returning the manuscript since the inclusion of late corrections cannot be guaranteed. Proofs should be returned by e-mail to email@example.com.
Off-prints: Twenty-five (25) off-prints of the paper and one copy of the journal will be supplied free of charge.
Off-prints and copies of the issue can be ordered at a specially reduced price upon request after the manuscript has been accepted.
All authors must sign the “Transfer of Copyright” agreement before the paper can be published.
