Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering (Monthly), under the competent authority of China Association for Science and Technology and started in 1979, is sponsored by 6 top Chinese societies: Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society, China Civil Engineering Society, Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Architectural Society of China, Chinese Society for Hydropower Engineering and Chinese Society for Vibration Engineering. Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering is edited and published by Nanjing Hydraulic Research Institute (NHRI). The Chairman of Editorial Board of Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering is CHEN Sheng-shui, President of NHRI, and the Editor-in-chief is Prof. CAI Zheng-yin, Deputy Chief Engineer of NHRI.
There are 10 academicians of Chinese Academy of Sciences or Chinese Academy of Engineering Sciences in the Editorial Board of Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering.
Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering has attracted most excellent contributions of theory and practices in the field of geotechnical engineering in China, and it will be helpful to relative researchers and technicians in the world. Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering is one of the most prestigious periodicals in China, and covers the latest development and achievements in the broad fields of geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering sciences. Areas mainly include soil and rock mechanics, foundation engineering, geological engineering, earth structures, environmental engineering, biological and chemical problems, geosynthetics, etc. Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering has many high-quality contributors and readers. In recent years, the ratio of accepted papers to submitted ones has been about 20%.
Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering is a periodical financially supported by Best Scientific and Technological Periodical Project of China Association for Science and Technology. It has been as a core hydraulic engineering and building sciences periodical included by A Guide to the Core Journals of China. Its Impact Factors and Total Cites have increased year after year. It has been as one of 100 Outstanding Academic Journals of China awarded by Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China for successive years. World Journal Clout Index (WJCI) 2020 STM released by China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) indicates that Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering ranks 30th in the key 147 worldwide civil engineering journals and enters into Q1 zone in this field with the highest ranking in Chinese journals. It is the only journal in Chinese in Q1 zone of the world civil engineering journals. Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering provides a platform for worldwide academic exchange of civil engineering and service of economic and social development and is China’s contribution to pursuing for world first-class journals. Since the centralized management of the journals hosted (sponsored) by NHRI, Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering, keeping aim at collecting scientific findings and leading disciplinary development, makes his contribution to promote the development of the first-class disciplines and construction of the international first-class institution of NHRI.
World Journal Clout Index (WJCI) 2020 STM selects the most important and representative 14 287 STM journals, including 11 276 journals in English and 3 011 journals in non-English, and all the journals cover 5 first-grade disciplines, 45 second-grade disciplines and 279 third-grade disciplines. 1 424 journals in the mainland of China are selected as the source journals, among which there are 172 and 345 journals in Q1 and Q2 zones, accounting for 4.6% and 8.1% in Q1 and Q2 zones, respectively.
Chinese Journal of Geotechnical Engineering has been indexed by many database systems at home and abroad, including: Ei Compendex, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA), Chinese Scientific Citation Index Database (CSCI), Source Journals for Chinese Scientific and Technical Papers and Citations, Chinese Journal Fulltext Database (CJFD), Chinese Academic Journal Comprehensive Evaluation Database (CAJCED), A Guide to the Core Journals of China, Wangfang Database and Weipu Database, etc.
