Steven Jones, et al, Published in Peer-reviewed Civil Engineering Journal !

Finally! After submitting a half-dozen papers to established peer-reviewed technical journals over a period of nearly a year, we have two papers which have passed peer-review and have been accepted for publication. One of these was published TODAY! In science, we say that we have “published in the literature,” a major step in a nascent line of scientific inquiry.

And many thanks to the editors for their courage and adherence to science in allowing us to follow the evidence and publish in their journal. (Indeed, expressions of thanks along these lines to the editors will be appreciated, as they will probably get a few letters chastising them… )

The paper is here: (our paper is listed on top at the moment, the most recently entered paper); or go here: on “year 2008” then scroll down to the paper and click on it.
With publication in an established civil engineering journal, the discussion has reached a new level – JREF’ers and others may attack, but unless they can also get published in a peer-reviewed journal, those attacks do not carry nearly the weight of a peer-reviewed paper. It may be that debunkers will try to avoid the fourteen issues we raise in the Letter, by attacking the author(s) or even the journal rather than addressing the science – that would not surprise me.

A great achievement. I look forward to the resulting debate and the papers that will be presented to counter this publication.

Thus far, in the public (online) arena, there has been NO credible evidence based rebuttal to the controlled demolition hypothesis for the collapse of the World Trade Centre Buildings.
