Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
Wind Engineering and Science publishes the latest research on civil infrastructure and lifelines designed to withstand wind and wind-driven rain effects of tropical cyclones, thunderstorms and tornadoes, and other extreme wind events. It broadly promotes advancements in theory, research and practice in architecture, structural engineering, building physics and science, boundary layer meteorology, and aspects of the social sciences that study how humans interact with the built environment.
The mission of Wind Engineering and Science is to provide a dedicated resource for engineers and scientists to create knowledge in emerging research areas and share potentially transformative ideas in one or more of the following areas:
1. Aeroelasticity and aerodynamic forcing.
2. Boundary-layer wind tunnel modeling.
3. Building physics and science.
4. Catastrophe modeling.
5. Computational wind engineering.
6. Full-scale testing and analysis.
7. Infrastructure resilience and its role in community functioning.
8. Structural and non-structural response to wind loading and wind-driven rain.
Contributions that demonstrate crossover between research fields or apply intersectional approaches to solve complex issues are especially welcome.

Wind Engineering and Science welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Wind Engineering and Science, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Wind Engineering and Science 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 all 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.
