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.
For instructions on how to prepare a technical report for publication by MCEER, please refer to the Technical Report Guidelines (pdf) and Technical Report Template (zip).
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 reconnaissance reports, monographs, 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.
