Australian Journal of
Advanced Geotechnical Engineering (AJAGE)

Welcome to "Australian Journal of Advanced Geotechnical Engineering"This journal is a quarterly international peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes high-quality single blind peer reviewed papers in the Geotechnical engineering field. The journal publishes the latest international research studies. We aim to encourage postgraduate students and top researchers to publish their experimental and numerical studies as fast as possible.

When the editor-in-chief receives a paper, it is first checked for originality and the contents to make sure the work is not published under similar titles. This part is essential because reviewers may not necessarily look for the originality of the papers. The figures should not be copied and they must be drawn appropriately. All equations must be typeset and they should not be in figure format. In addition, tables must be in table format.

Then editor-in-chief sends the paper to the editorial board members, who are responsible for finding two reviewers for review. After receiving reviewers' comments, if some corrections are needed, reviewers' comments are sent to the author(s) to make corrections within the specified time. This process continues until the article is either rejected or approved. Once a paper is accepted, its online version will be published quickly.  Any online paper would have a unique DOI number to ensure the other researchers can cite it during the publishing process.

Authors keep possession of the copyright for their papers, but permit anyone to download, reuse, reprint, modify, distribute and copy the content as long as the original authors and source are cited. Anyone can have access to the full text of the published articles in PDF format without any restriction.
