|Soils and Foundations is a bi-monthly journal which specializes
on the whole field of geotechnical engineering and related disciplines.
This journal publishes research papers, reports of important engineering
experiences, state-of-the-art reports on important themes, and discussions.
Continuing efforts have been made by the editorial board members to
maintain the high quality of the journal by reviewing manuscripts
in careful and fair manner. A special attention has been focused therefore
on the novelty and readers' benefit together with practical applicability
if necessary. Further, the editorial board is happy to give instructions
to authors of manuscripts which could improve their quality. One of
the benefits to non-English-speaking authors is that the English in
accepted manuscripts is improved by a specialist who is a native and
professionally-educated English speaker. Good papers in this journal
are entitled to apply for academic awards of the Japanese Geotechnical
Society. The publication fee is free up to a specified number of pages.
Soils and Foundations is abstracted and indexed in various services
