g-6-0_14a_03.jpgGeomechanics is a complete theoretical system established by Professor Li Siguang, based on Chinese geological practice and a combination of geology and mechanics. The Institute of Geomechanics founded the "Symposium of Geomechanics" in 1959 and then published the "Selected Papers of Geomechanics" and the "Journal of the Institute of Geomechanics" successively. In 1995, in order to expand academic cooperation and exchange, to promote and introduce new achievements, knowledge and experiences and to bring about advances in geomechanics, the Institute merged the "Symposium of Geomechanics" and "Journal of the Institute of Geomechanics" and established the "Journal of Geomechanics" for domestic and overseas publications."

Journal of Geomechanics is one of the Chinese Core Scientific and Technological Periodicals. It is a source periodical for the scientific and technological paper statistics in China, a source periodical of Chinese Scientific and Technologic Paper Citation Database, and a statistic source periodical of Chinese Academic Journal Comprehensive Evaluation Database from China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI). All the papers published in the journal are full-text available at “Wanfang data - digital periodicals” website, and have been included in the Chinese Scientific and Technologic Journal Database, the China Core Periodical (Choosing) Database and the Chinese Journal Full-text Database (CJFD) from China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI). It is a window introducing the scientific research achievements of the Institute of Geomechanics to the outside world. The journal mainly reports the forefront advances and basic theoretical achievements on crustal movement and continental geological structure and its dynamic mechanism. At the same time, it is also concerned about the advances on mineral resources, geologic hazard investigation and prevention and environmental changes. The citation rate and influence of the journal have been increasing year by year. According to the Chinese Academic Journal Citation Annual Report, the citation frequency and impact factor were 335 and 0.651 respectively in 2008.
