Materiały Budowlane is one of the oldest (published since 1946) peer-reviewed technical and scientific journal in Poland, addressed to all professional groups related to civil engineering. For many years it was just a polish language journal but since few years it is becoming an international one as the best papers are translated and presented in English.
Official name of our journal is Materiały Budowlane. Therefore authors are requested to use only this name (not English translation – Building Materials) because the journal is registered in all databases as Materialy Budowlane.
