In this work, the double-circulant, bordered-double-circulant and stripped bordered-double-circulant constructions for self-dual codes over the non-chain ring R 2 = F 2 + uF 2 + vF 2 + uvF 2 are introduced. Using these methods, we have constructed three extremal binary Type I codes of length 64 of new weight enumerators for which extremal codes were not known to exist. We also give a double-circulant construction for extremal binary self-dual codes of length 40 with covering radius 7.
