61,313 paper downloads in 2017 for the ISSMGE International JOURNAL of Geoengineering Case Histories!

The ISSMGE International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories is proud to announce that 61,313 papers were downloaded in 2017 (http://www.geocasehistoriesjournal.org).

 The International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories is the official journal of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering, the premier scientific organization for geotechnical engineering worldwide. The Case Histories Journal covers the broad area of practice in geotechnical engineering (soils and rocks), including geotechnical earthquake engineering, environmental geotechnics and engineering geology, and energy geo-construction.

Papers published in this refereed journal are freely available in color and are accompanied by databases that include the electronic data presented in the paper as well as additional figures (as necessary). The locations of the case histories are also positioned in the IJGCH Geographic Database.

 The open access vision of the journal is endorsed by the community. All papers are immediately downloadable by visitors and accessed through Google Scholar and Georef index databases. As a a result, just in 2017 60,000+ papers were downloaded by Professionals.
