IETCC Publications

The current Publications Service has its origin in the primitive Bibliographic Guidance Service. It was one of the most active Services and with more external impact of the Centre. It was born with the fundamental purpose of informing the Spanish technicians about the advances that were being achieved in the field of construction both in Spain and in other countries.

In 1948 the magazine Informes de la Construcci贸n appeared on a monthly basis. Currently, this magazine is one of the most recognized in the field of Spanish-speaking construction and is included in the “Journal Citation Report” service.

Almost parallel to the creation of Informes de la Construcci贸n, another magazine was founded in 1949 called 脷ltimos avances en materiales de Construcci贸n, which in 1958 was renamed Materiales de Construcci贸n. 脷ltimos avances. The current name of Materiales de Construcci贸n is formalized in 1974. Materiales de Construcci贸n is an international scientific journal published in English, and is the reference journal in this subject at a national level. It has been the first Spanish scientific journal in its area to enter, more than 20 years ago, the databases of the “Journal Citation Reports (JCR)”. Currently, it is the only journal published by the CSIC that is in quartile 2 (Q2) in the JCR. The contents of the journal are available at:

At the same time, the Institute is promoting the publication of a series of works based on the experimental work carried out by the Centre’s staff under the heading of Monografias.

Currently, in the Publications section you can also find different digital archives in which the centre or its researchers have participated.
