About the Journal

Journal of Geotechnical Engineering [2394-1987(e)] is a peer-reviewed hybrid open-access journal launched in 2014 aiming contributions in the form of Research articles, Review articles, Short articles, and Discussions related to the field of Geotechnical Engineering are accepted. The Journal covers all major areas involved in Geotechnical engineering.
