The Publisher of the scientific bimonthly of international circulation, entitled „Cement-Wapno-Beton” [„Cement-Lime-Concrete”], is the Fundacja Cement, Wapno, Beton [Foundation Cement, Lime, Concrete]. The periodical is dedicated to the issues concerning mineral setting materials and concrete. It is concerned with the publication of academic and research works from the field of chemistry and technology of building setting materials and concrete.
The periodical has a very long history, since it constitutes a continuation of the monthly entitled „Cement”, which used to be a publication of the Union of the Polish Cement Factories. Its first issue came out in December 1930. The periodical was primarily concerned with the popularization of concrete technology. The Second Word War brought about a break of several years in the publication of the periodical, however, the first issue of „Cement” appeared as early as August 1945. In 1950, the range of topics of the „Cement” monthly was expanded, which also resulted in the change of the title to „Cement-Lime-Gypsum”. After the economic transformation in Poland and the establishment of the free-market economy in 1989, the periodical considerably increased the focus on the research dedicated to concrete chemistry. As a result of this it became necessary to emphasize this change in the title of the publication. The first issue of the periodical under the new title „Cement-Lime-Concrete” appeared in January 1996. Also the composition of the Editorial Committee was expanded and a number of distinguished world-famous scholars were invited to join it. The number of the published works of the authors from all over the world was increased.
