Since 1987, MCEER (formerly the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering
Research - MCEER and the National Center for Earthquake Engineering
Research - NCEER) has produced over 600 publications that describe the latest Center research
and developments on a wide variety of topics. These publications include
technical reports, workshop and conference proceedings, and
special publications such as reconnaissance reports, monographs, guidelines and standards, white papers and research summaries. MCEER publications are intended to be of interest to a wide range
of readers, including academic researchers, consultants and practitioners
in government and the private sector.
Technical reports present detailed accounts of Center research investigations. Reports are written by MCEER researchers, reviewed by external peer reviewers, and are generally available shortly after submittal. A wide variety of subjects related to earthquake and disaster mitigation are addressed. Yearly subscriptions are available.
Workshop and Conference Proceedings serve as a permanent record of many MCEER-sponsored events. In addition to the papers presented, proceedings often include resolutions, recommendations and issues identified for further study.
Special Publications synthesize MCEER's technical achievements for a wider range of readers than the technical reports. Special publications include codes, guidelines and standards, reconnaissance reports, monographs, research summaries and special series on a related disaster, hazard or topic.
The MCEER Bulletin is a newsletter that features articles on the Center's research, education and outreach activities. Many of the articles include hyperlinks to additional information available on the web.
In addition, the MCEER Information Service offers a dynamic web site to help keep readers current on professional activities, projects, and publications of interest to the earthquake and disaster mitigation community. The website features brief reviews of new publications on earthquake engineering and related topics, educational and fellowship opportunities, professional meetings and calls for papers, as well as information of general interest to the community.
