image The American Concrete Institute (ACI) Journals and NEEScomm are partnering to use the powerful capabilities of the NEEShub to share experimental data from journal articles that would be of interest to other researchers. We anticipate that the availability of these important data sets will accelerate our progress in achieving earthquake-resilient communities around the world.
From the main publications page available at the View Databases button, you will find the data associated with a specific journal manuscript and the figures therein, read the abstract, view the figures from the article, and download the data files provided by the authors for each figure. A link to the journal paper itself (at the published site) is provided.

Contributing an ACI Publication

Submit My Journal Article
When a paper is published/accepted in one of the ACI journals, we invite and encourage the authors to share significant experimental data through the NEEShub. Willing authors are provided with help to make their data available. At this time, the process is manual. Please Click Here if you would like to make your manuscript data available for the research community in a convenient, complete and easily-accessible format. In the coming year we anticipate providing an automated process for an author to contribute the data from his/her manuscript.

Using the ACI Publications Database

When you click on the View Database button you will be sent to the ACI Publications Database, which provides a list of the articles, including authors, abstracts, and citation information.

You can select a particular journal article of interest, and the View Data link under the Figure Data column will open another spreadsheet that lists the figures associated with that article. A thumbnail of each figure is available for quick identification of the data of interest. Experimental data files from the authors of the article may also be also downloaded in ascii format.
