The ISSMGE International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories is proud to announce that 65,198 papers were downloaded in 2018 (https://www.geocasehistoriesjournal.org).

The International Journal of Geoengineering Case Histories is an 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 with a focus on careful documentation of case histories and emphasis on observations and data collected during and after project 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 aimed to better serve the professional community. All papers are immediately downloadable by visitors and accessed through Google Scholar and Georef index index databases. The more than65,000+ paper downloads in 2018 speaks volumes about the impact of the journal.

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 and 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 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.
