The International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories is pleased to launch its new website, which is available at: http://www.geocasehistoriesjournal.org !
The “International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories” is an official journal of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE), focusing on the publication of well- documented case histories. This refereed journal focuses exclusively on geoengineering practice and has many unique features. The Case Histories Journal covers the broad area of practice in geotechnical engineering (soils and rocks) including geotechnical earthquake engineering, environmental geotechnics, engineering geology and energy geo-construction.
The new website is a major development with fresh and more appealing look and a new intuitive design, and is now moved to its own domain (geocasehistoriesjournal.org). The journal now has an online management system where authors can upload easily manuscripts for review and keep track of the review process. The review system is also integrated with the GeoWorld professional network.
The launch of the new website comes shortly after the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between ISSMGE and the publisher (ELXIS S.A.) emphasizing the open access publication of the Journal.
The mission of the ISSMGE International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories is to provide open access to high quality, reviewed, scientific knowledge that is relevant to engineering practice. In 2016, papers published in the Case Histories journal were downloaded 35,382 times.
