From the email:
I would like to request your special attention to the new journal;
"Geomechanics and Engineering (GAE),"
An International Journal of Computational and Theoretical Geomechanics, Foundations, Tunneling, Site Characterization, and Soil-Structure Interactions. The journal will provide an excellent publication channel for the global research community in geomechanics and its applications.
The editorial body of the new journal will be constituted with two Editors-in-Chief (Professors. Poul V. Lade (Columbia U, USA) and Jong-ho Shin (Konkuk U, Korea), and 40 editorial board members. I myself will serve as a managing editor for the journal who will handle mostly administrative matters.
The journal will be published quarterly in the first year by Techno-Press, which is one of the successful international journal publishing houses outside USA and Europe. The inaugural issue of the GAE is expected to be published in January 2009. For more information, please visit;
Considering your global reputation in the field of Geomechanics and Engineering, I have the pleasure to invite you to contribute a paper to the new journal. We will make every effort to expedite the review process for the invited papers for possible inclusion in the first few issue of the journal. For "Instructions to Prepare Manuscrpt", you are referred to the flyer whch is attached to this e-mail.
We will also greatly appreciate if you can recommend the journal to your library for possible subscription. The journal is priced as low as possible and no other journals of similar quality can match. You may also personally subscribe to the journal at the personal subscription rate (http://technopress.kaist.ac.kr/samplejournal/gae/gae05.jsp).
Looking forward to your enjoyable association with the new journal in the future, I remain,
Geomechanics and Engineering, An Int’ Journal
