The journal was first launched in 1999 and is a bimonthly journal published in Chinese.

    SSCAE mainly publishes key achievements in strategic research projects of the engineering field and aims to discuss hot topics and challenges in engineering science and spread the influence of major research outputs, in the hope of providing a reference for scientific decision-making by the government and to encourage academic achievements.

    Each issue of this journal is based on one to two major research projects or research outputs in key research areas. Accepted submissions will be published immediately on the Engineering platform ( and an English translation will later be posted online for the international readers to better understand the papers.

    This journal is one of the source journals for both Chinese Scientific and Technical Papers and Citations (CSTPCD) and Core Journals of China. It is included in the China Science Citation Database (CSCD), the Research Center for Chinese Science Evaluation (RCCSE) Core Journals of China, and Japan Science and Technology Agency, Chinese Bibliographic Database (JST China).

    SSCAE is selected as one of the China Journal Initiative C journals in 2019.

  • Aims of the journal

    This journal is dedicated to supporting the development of the national high-end science and technology think tank and national scientific decision-making. Its aims are: to provide a high-level platform where major research outputs can be disseminated and shared; to discuss hot topics and challenges in engineering science; to spread the influence and strengthen the effects of major research outputs; and to promote academic exchanges, in the hope of providing a reference for the scientific decision-making of relevant government departments and further research by scholars.

    Scope of publication

    This journal publishes academic papers that provide insight into the results of (non-confidential) strategic research in the field of engineering science, including three main aspects: comprehensive, strategic, and prospective research results concerning major national strategic needs and key issues of economic and social development; major research outputs regarding key decision-making in the development of the national economy, especially research results of major scientific and technological decision-making in the field of industry; and advancements in strategic research in response to the decision-making of sudden major events.
