ASTM International’s Geotechnical Testing Journal Receives Increased Impact Factor Rating

ASTM International announced today the Geotechnical Testing Journal received an increased 2021 impact factor rating of 1.82, up more than 23% from the previous year.

The impact factor is calculated each year by Clarivate Analytics and given to journals that appear in their database, Science Citation Index. 

Launched in 1978, the Geotechnical Testing Journal covers test methods for soil and rock, sampling, nomenclature, and practices relating to the determination of properties and behavior of soil and rock for engineering purposes, and for soil as a medium for plant growth.

Content includes papers, technical notes, letters to the editor, discussions of previously published papers, and book reviews covering areas such as:

  • New testing equipment, apparatus, and procedures for both field and laboratory applications,
  • Evaluation of existing ASTM International standards and recommendations for new standards for apparatus or test procedures, and 
  • Test results that give insights into test procedures, techniques, and data interpretation.  

The Geotechnical Testing Journal is available in Google Scholar, Science Citation Index, Scopus, and other scientific journal databases. For more information and to submit a paper, click here.
