Prof. Francisca Puertas, Honorary Editor-in-Chief of Materiales de Construcción.

In December 2019 the editorship-in-chief of Materiales de Construcción changed hands. The journal’s new EiC, its Editorial Board, the IETcc Director, Editorial CSIC and the CSIC Publications Commission decided to acknowledge Prof. Francisca Puertas’s outstanding performance during her 20-plus years at the helm, designating her Honorary Editor-in-Chief of Materiales de Construcción.

Our sincere congratulations to Prof. Puertas for such richly merited recognition.

Prof. Francisca Puertas has written a farewell editorial for this year’s first issue and new EiC Dr Mar Alonso another, ushering in the new period and thanking Prof. F. Puertas for the high standards she set for the journal during her tenure.
