The resilient cities and society may be realized by investigating the following critical issues.
(1) Typological classification of cities by Digital Architecture and Urban Science: The cities with common types can jointly seek for common useful methods for constructing resilient society.
(2) Promotion of Wind and Earthquake Engineering for damage-tolerant infrastructure and building systems (Bridge Engineering, Structural Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Hydrological Engineering, Transportation and Transit Systems.
(3) Smart use of green building and energy techniques (Sustainable Design and Construction, Smart Structural Materials and Indoor Environment): Low-carbon society enables the realization of more resilient society.
(4) Structural and environmental health monitoring enhances the performance of early warning systems for disasters and damages which enables resilient society (Structural Sensing, Earthquake Engineering, Urban Science, Transportation and Transit Systems).
Frontiers in Built Environment accepts original, theoretical, computational, and experimental research for investigating these issues, but not restricted to these specific fields.

Frontiers in Built Environment is composed of the following Specialty Sections:
The specialty sections of Frontiers in Built Environment welcome submission of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
When submitting a manuscript to Frontiers in Built Environment, authors must submit the material directly to one of the specialty sections. Manuscripts are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the respective specialty section.
Articles published in the specialty sections above will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in the Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Built Environment.
