How to publish in this journal


La Rivista Italiana di Geotecnica (RIG), organo ufficiale dell’Associazione Geotecnica Italiana, è una rivista scientifica, fondata dal professor Arrigo Croce nel 1967, che ospita contributi originali riguardanti ogni aspetto della materia. Gli articoli pubblicati sulla RIG spaziano da studi teorici, numerici e/o sperimentali relativi al comportamento meccanico dell’elemento di volume di terre o rocce, a contributi dedicati a problemi di interazione statica o dinamica tra terreno e strutture (fondazioni, opere di sostegno, gallerie, tubazioni interrate, ecc.), a problemi di stabilità dei versanti e relativi interventi, costruzioni di materiali sciolti, miglioramento dei terreni, opere di protezione dai rischi idrogeologici, idraulica del sottosuolo e così via. La rivista ospita anche contributi relativi alla progettazione, esecuzione e controllo di opere geotecniche, che possono assumere sia la forma di articoli veri e propri sia di note tecniche, a seconda dell’importanza delle opere e dell’originalità dei contributi.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
