Open Access Geotechnical engineering Journals

A list of Open Access Geotechnical engineering journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Geotechnical engineering is scientific study of earth materials in engineering problems; branch of civil engineering concerned with the engineering behavior of earth materials

Open Access journals publish research articles that are free to to view and download. The main difference between articles in open access journals and those in closed journals is the business model. Both types of articles have to undergo the same peer review process.

Our team made this list of Geotechnical engineering Open Access journals with the aim to help you to decide where to publish your Geotechnical engineering manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Geotechnical engineering journals as well as new journals. This should give you a better idea on where you should publish. Rather than displaying just the most relevant Geotechnical engineering journals, we have made an in-depth list of all the open accesss Geotechnical engineering journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Geotechnical engineering venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Geotechnical engineering journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the level of association between a journal being listed and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Physics Through Computation has a relevance of “100” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often works from this journal are referenced in other research papers. This data is obtained from OpenAlex. Even though the accuracy is debatable, it could help you determine how prestigious a journal is on the whole.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists, look on
How can I publish my paper on
That's exactly why we made these lists, so you can find a journal that will publish your paper. We at don't offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
The Article Processing Charge (APC) is the fee that publishers of some open access journals charge in order to publish articles.
What are the different Open Access types?
Although there are Gold, Green, Hybrid, Bronze, Diamond, and Black Open Access licenses, here are the most common ones: Full Gold Open Access: article is freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Hybrid Open Access: refers to a publishing model in which subscription-based journals allow authors to make individual articles gold open access immediately on payment of an article publication charge. Green Open Access: refers to the possibility to make subscription-based journal articles open access by uploading the peer-reviewed and accepted author manuscript to an institutional repository (such as DiVA)
