Types of paper

The following types of contribution are published in The Czech Journal of Civil Engineering:

Original article: Standard research papers of 2000-4000 words in length (approx. 6-8 A4 pages formatted according to the attached template), with tables, illustrations, and references, in which hypotheses are tested and results reported. In case of a more extensive contribution, it is necessary to consult it with the editor-in-chief and provide justification.

Review article: Review papers provide an extensive overview of recent developments in specific areas that fall within the scope of the journal. They are expected to have an extensive literature review followed by an in-depth analysis of the state of the art, and identify challenges for future research. Review articles are usually up to 12 000 words and must include a Methods section explaining how the literature for review was selected.

Technical note: Concise scientific summaries/reports of approximately 500 words of new products/technologies of relevance to the field of Civil Engineering. Illustrations may be included but not company logos.

Conference Reports: Reports on major international conferences of particular interest to The Czech Journal of Civil Engineering, approximately 1000-2000 words.

Book Reviews: Reviews of approximately 500-1000 words on new books, software, and videos relevant to the scope of The Czech Journal of Civil Engineering.

Letters to the Editor: Letters designed to clarify or respond to the content of a paper previously published in the Journal or to raise questions about future directions of The Czech Journal of Civil Engineering or other issues that a reader may wish to pose that are relevant to the mandate of the Journal.

Ethics in publishing

Authors have a responsibility to present their work with the intellectual integrity that the scientific community expects. Authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if they have used the work and/or words of others, these should be appropriately cited or quoted. Authors should not concurrently submit a paper to more than one journal or primary publication, and should not submit a previously published paper for consideration.

Using AI-assisted technologies

Where authors use generative AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process, these technologies should only be used to improve readability and language of the work. Applying the technology should be done with human oversight and control and authors should carefully review and edit the result.

Authors should not list AI and AI-assisted technologies as an author or co-author, nor cite AI as an author.

Conflict of interest

All authors must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, paid expert testimony, patent applications/registrations, and grants or other funding.
