Jurnal Saintis publishes original research that seeks to improve civil engineering competency, efficiency, and productivity in world markets. The scope is intentionally broad and Jurnal Saintis recognizes the complexity of issues and challenges related to civil engineering. Jurnal Saintis publishes research articles in the fields of geotechnics, transports, structures, water resources and others associated with civil engineering topics. Subject areas include; structural mechanics and engineering, structural design and construction management, structural analysis and computational mechanics, construction technology and implementation, construction materials design and engineering, highway and transport engineering, bridge and tunnel engineering, municipal and urban engineering, coastal, harbour and offshore engineering, geotechnical and earthquake engineering, engineering for water, waste, energy, and environmental applications, hydraulic engineering and fluid mechanics, surveying, monitoring, and control systems in construction, and health and safety in a civil engineering setting.

Peer-review. Jurnal Saintis uses double-blind peer review (neither the authors nor the reviewers know the identity of each other) to avoid bias with two reviewers for each article. See more information <Review>. Jurnal Saintis complies with the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Guidelines for Peer Reviewers which provides a comprehensive guide to the ethics of peer review. See more information <Guidelines for Reviewers>. 

Data Sharing and Archiving. Jurnal Saintis encourage all researchers to archive and share their data. Several grant funders now require this, and we believe that it benefits research by enabling other researchers to reuse and reinterpret data for the benefit of all. We encourage all authors to make their data available in suitable repositories (for example FigShare or another similar repository) where the item will be safely archived and given a unique reference number (DOI or similar) so that it can be cited in the authors’ articles.  Jurnal Saintis itself deposit the published article in Portal Garuda of Kemenristekdikti Indonesia, as well as in Indonesia One Search of National Library of Indonesia.
