"Sharif Journal of Mechanical Engineering" from the beginning until now

This Journal started its journey in the form of a scientific and cultural newsletter in 1983 to respond to the needs and demands of the time and, subsequently, in 1992, the journal remained true to its scientific and cultural aim in a new form with Dr. Abol-Hasan Vafaie as its editor-in-chief. In 2001, after a period of 10 years and publishing issues pertinent to subject matters such as "Higher Education of the Country", "University, Industry, and Government Relations", "Environment", "Biotechnology", etc., the journal, with numerous consultations with university officials, reflected the scientific and research achievements of university professors across the country in various fields of science and engineering.

Having been granted the Scientific and Research grade approved by the Ministry of Science, Research, and Technology, Sharif Journal joined the circle of prestigious scientific and research journals inside the country.

  • Civil engineering (Sharif Journal of Civil Engineering)
