New earth science journals from Taylor Francis.
"Geomechanics and Geoengineering" is designed to be a channel for research in the areas of soil and rock mechanics, geotechnical and geological engineering, engineering geology, environmental engineering and related science disciplines. A forum for the exchange of ideas, especially between researchers in Asia and the rest of the world, it carries information on material behavior, analysis procedures, design and construction. It will be published quarterly and an annual subscription costs $106 for individuals and $318 for institutions.
To be hunched in March, "Georisk" will cover a range of research and practice areas including geohazards (earthquakes, rock falls, tsunamis, etc.), safety of engineered systems (dams, buildings, offshore structures, etc.), environmental risk, seismic risk, design and code calibration, geostatistics, structural reliability, hazard mapping, loss assessment and remote sensing. An annual subscription costs $75 for individuals and $295 for institutions.
Also, T&F will assume responsibility for the publication of the "Journal of Earthquake Engineering," a bimonthly journal that carries research and news on development in analytical, experimental and field studies of earthquakes from the engineering seismology and structural engineering viewpoints. Content covers historic seismology, tectonics, soil dynamics, site effects, seismic response of buildings, bridges and other structures, earthquake protection systems, repair and strengthening, and mitigation and emergency planning. An annual subscription costs $199 for individuals and $546 for institutions.
