ASCE publishes high quality, authoritative books that represent the best thinking in civil engineering research and practice. Prior to publication each title is exhaustively peer-reviewed by groups of subject matter experts. Our list includes more than 1,500 Standards, Manuals of Practice, Committee Reports, Proceedings, and ASCE Press titles. For further information visit the Bookstore.


ASCE's 33 peer-reviewed journals, highly cited and highly respected, are the medium through which civil engineers exchange technical and professional knowledge. Information published in the journals forms an archival record of the technical advances of today's civil engineering profession.

Expanded Digital Archive. The complete volumes from 1983-1989 are now available online as part of our continuing effort to digitize the ASCE Journal backfile.

Research Tools

The Civil Engineering Database contains over 170,000 bibliographic records of everything ASCE has published since 1970. The ASCE Library is a comprehensive tool for locating online content across all disciplines of civil engineering. The Library provides you with unprecedented access to more than 80,000 full-text papers from ASCE Journals and Proceedings published - that’s over 690,000 pages! Approximately 7,000 new papers will be added each year.


Turn to Civil Engineering, ASCE's award-winning monthly magazine, for information about significant projects, events, and trends of interest to civil engineers. The mix of articles in each issue is designed to appeal to a broad range of readers, who represent the full spectrum of civil engineering disciplines. Other periodicals include ASCE News which reports on the activities of the Society and Geo-Strata, published on behalf of the Geo-Institute.

Contract Documents

ASCE participates in a joint committee that includes American Council of Engineering Companies, NSPE's Professional Engineers in Private Practice Division, Associated General Contractors of America and more than fifteen other professional engineering design, construction, owner, legal, and risk management organizations to develop and update fair and objective standard contract documents that represent the latest and best thinking in contractual relations between all parties involved in engineering design and construction projects.
