Why Open Geomechanics
Open Geomechanics is a non-profit, volunteer-run, double blind peer-reviewed scientific journal. As a diamond open access journal, it is free to publish in and free to read. Open Geomechanics started in 2018.
We believe that the time is right to have a journal for geomechanics research, edited by geomechanics researchers for geomechanics researchers.
This journal is keeping the control of publishing within the scientific community and removing barriers for publication and dissemination of knowledge in our community.
Papers are immediately released online on the fly meaning that there are no yearly/monthly issues. Papers are archived through the Centre Mersenne on the CLOCKSS system.
Open Geomechanics has the ambition to provide an open platform for the dissemination of scientific research in geomechanics in all forms.
This means that research manuscripts (in any geomechanics related topics such as analytical, numerical or experimental studies) or case studies, negative results, as well as replicability or reproducibility studies are welcome.
Manuscripts of most lengths are accepted, indicatively 5-20 pages would generally be suggested.
