The journal

    Since 1983, the Austrian Society for Geomechanics (OeGG) has been the editor of a technical journal focused on Engineering Geology, Geotechnis and Tunnelling.

    Between 1962 and 1969, many constributions of the Geomechanics Colloquium in Salzburg were published in the journal "Felsmechanik und Ingenieurgeologie" (before that in "Geolgoie und Bauwesen), and between 1969 and 1983 mostly in "Rock Mechanics and Engineering Geology". In 1983 the society created its own journal, "Felsbau", which was edited by the society until 2007.

    Since 2008, the name of the journal changed to: 

    Geomechanics and Tunnelling

    and is published by Verlag Ernst & Sohn, Berlin.

    The publisher Ernst & Sohn, a member of the John Wiley Company, publishes and distributes journals in the field of engineering world wide and has an up to date internet portal (Wiley Online Library). Since February 2008 the journal Geomechanics and Tunnelling is available online.

    The OeGG, together with the publisher intends to significantly increase the world wide distribution of the journal. Connected with the change in the name and the publisher is also a new layout and an upgraded contents.

    The six yearly issues are published in English and German language. Papers from all over the world deal with practical and theoretical aspects of Engineering Geology, Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering, Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Tunnelling, and Construction Management.

    The contributions in the single issues generally are focussed on a topic of interest or a specific construction project. An international editorial board selects topics and papers, and guarantees a high quality of the journal.
