Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology

Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology is owned by the Geological Society of London and published by the Geological Society Publishing House.

Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology (QJEGH) was established in 1967 to foster engineering geology research and practice. International in scope, its focus is on geology as applied to civil and environmental engineering and groundwater resource management. QJEGH publishes high-quality, authoritative, peer reviewed, international papers, addressing sustainability, climate change, energy transition, geohazards and geo-resilience, to inform academic and industry practitioners in engineering geology and hydrogeology.

QJEGH publishes the prestigious:

The William Dearman Early Career Award is annually presented for the best QJEGH paper from an author in the early stages of their career.

Papers are invited from, and about, all areas of the world on engineering geology and hydrogeology topics, including but not limited to: engineering and environmental geology; applied geomorphology and geophysics; ground modelling; hydrogeology; groundwater quality and resources; contaminated land; waste management; ground source energy; land use planning; surface and underground mining; geotechnics; landslides; rock mechanics; geomaterials; geological hazards. All QJEGH papers must have geological content and/or relevance.

QJEGH publishes research papers, case studies, review articles, technical notes, photographic features, thematic collection papers, discussion papers, editorial opinion and book reviews.

Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology is a Plan S compliant journal.
