Call from Journal of Steel Structures and Construction: Open-Access (Volume 6: Issue 1)


Steel is the most widely used industry in the O&G sectors when compared to all other industries. These two sectors have always been intertwined and dependent on each other because they use materials produced by each other. A significant percentage of all steel manufacturers’ revenue is from the O&G sector. The fall in crude oil prices during mid-2014 to 2016 resulted in projects being cancelled. This has directly affected the profitability of this industry due to the minimum purchase of steel products for projects.

The steel industry is known for being cyclical and reflective of overall market conditions—demand increases during economic booms and plummets during global recessions. Around the end of 2014, the steel industry went through a consolidation phase that was similar to the one that the oil and gas (O&G) industry experienced.

The engineering field is dynamic and changing, where external forces require engineers to adapt or be left behind. This webinar takes a close look at five of the engineering trends that are shaping the industry and the resulting implications.

These engineering trends include:

  • Profitable growth and engineering staffing
  • The visibility mandate for engineering organizations
  • The expanding role of the modern engineer
  • The increasing volatility of engineering work
  • The coming war for engineering talent

Our Journal of Steel Structures and Construction (OMICS International) is an Esteemed, Peer reviewed and Open Access journal which focuses on present latest developments in the field of Architectural Designing, Interior Designing and Steel Industry. Our journal promulgates all the innovative inventions in the field of steel industry and architecture.

Our Editorial Board members are is over whelmed by the response and eagerness of the academic and research contributors to publish with the journal and take part in submissions of the scientific work in the mode of manuscripts. During this year we look forward to taking some initiatives that would encourage and reward our prospective audience which include civil engineers, engineers, and a range of professionals in the Steel industry and Construction community.

Our esteemed journal is looking forward for the upcoming issue (Volume 6: Issue 1) having journal impact factor of 0.64*. We are glad for the upcoming year issue release as all the authors are invited to submit their recent scientific work through manuscripts in the mode of Research/Case Reports/Case Studies/Reviews/Short Review/ Short Communications/Commentaries/Short Commentaries/Letters to Editor/ Image articles etc., from different regions around the world.

Our Journal welcomes submissions of manuscripts on the topics covering Aerospace Engineering Research, Architectural Designing, Bridges, Buildings, Earthquake Engineering, Interior Designing, Seismic Analysis, Steel Industry, Structural Engineering, etc. In the quality perspective, the journal is determined to maintain an exceptionally high standard in both facts and ethics. Accuracy and authenticity in the scientific reports of present journal are conserved above all nominal needs of the time.

A standard editorial manager system is utilized for manuscript submission, review, editorial processing and tracking which can be securely accessed by the authors, reviewers and editors for monitoring and tracking the article processing. Manuscripts can be uploaded online at Editorial Tracking System or as an email attachment to
