The Japanese Geotechnical Society publishes three periodicals such as the Journal of JGS, the Japanese Geotechnical Journal and Soils and Foundations.

The Journal of JGS is distributed to all members in Japanese. It is a monthly journal which dates back to 1953. It has been published in electronic form only since April 2020. Effort is made to select appropriate topics so that the members knowledge of the topics related to the development of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering is constantly updated. This improves their future prospects.

The Japanese Geotechnical Journal is on-line academic journal, and it is published every three months in Japanese. Technical papers, technical notes, state of the arts reports, discussions and closures are published in this journal, which was first issued in 2006. Access to information in this online journal is available to anyone interested at no cost.

Soils and Foundations is the bimonthly journal. It is the medium through which geotechnical engineers exchange technical and professional knowledge. State-of-the-art reports, technical papers, technical notes, geo-disaster reports, discussions and closures are published in this journal in English. Soils and Foundations went into publication in 1960, and its 60th anniversary in 2020 was celebrated by providing an gold open access journal in partnership with Elsevier. The authors of the papers which appear in Soils and Foundations are practicing engineers, consultants, and academics from various parts of the world. Soils and Foundations has a reputation as a top-class international technical journal in the field of geotechnical engineering. Visit
