Cantilever: Jurnal Penelitian dan Kajian Bidang Teknik Sipil is a peer-reviewed, high-quality journal in civil engineering that presents recent research results and literature reviews in the fields of building and structural engineering, transportation, water resources engineering and management, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering and management, environmental engineering, and architecture.
The name "Cantilever" specifically is taken from one type of structure, which is a rigid structural element that extends horizontally and is supported at only one end. It aims to signify the specialization focus of the journal content in the field of civil engineering. Besides that, this also intends to give a uniqueness to the journal where on each published cover will be presented a photograph of the cantilever structure.
The journal was first published in 2006 in the printed version. Since 2015, Cantilever has been published both in the printed and online versions (e-journal). For the online version, previously, the journal could be accessed at http://cantilever.unsri.ac.id, but since Vol. 8 No.2 (2019), the journal has been published at http://cantilever.id. This journal is managed and published by the Department of Civil Engineering and Planning, Faculty of Engineering, Sriwijaya University. The journal is published twice a year, in April and October.
The editors invite experts, academics (lecturers and students), researchers, observers, and practitioners to submit their papers in the form of scientific papers that have never been published or are not in the process of publication in other print media. The instructions for writing and submitting the manuscript for the authors can be read on the back cover and author guidelines page. The submitted text will be reviewed by expert editors and reviewers, and then processed by the editorial board for publication. The editors have the right to edit the contents of the text without changing the intent and meaning. The contents of the paper and the accuracy of the data are entirely the responsibility of the authors.
