Founded in 1986, and published by the Department of Engineering and Construction Management of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, the Journal Revista Ingeniería de Construcción (RIC) has already a long history. The Journal‘s fundamental purpose is to promote the progress and development of engineering and construction management by providing an international dissemination space of new knowledge and research results, with special emphasis on the Ibero-Latin American region. Revista Ingeniería de Construcción is working with Ahead-of-Print (AOP) versions for our manuscripts accepted as of mid-2021. The AOP version will not change its DOI number, because it incorporates the advance publishing date, and papers can be cited prior to print publication.
