The Bulletin of Engineering Geology and the Environnement is the official journal of the IAEG and is published by Springer-Verlag from June 1998.
This international publishing house distributes the Bulletin to members and fosters new subscriptions in order that the important papers which are published become more widely available in libraries.
The Bulletin will continue to publish papers in English and French. As many readers have a greater fluency in English, French papers are preceded by an English summary significantly longer than the standard abstract. Reference to important figures will be made in the summary, although the diagrams themselves will be normally positioned within the text.
With the availability of 432 text pages per year, it is possible to publish papers quickly, subject to the normal refereeing process. It is our intention that topical and high quality papers would be published within six months of receipt. While papers in their final form will normally be sent to the publisher as both hard copies and in electronic form, authors are particularly asked to prepare their diagrams using computer graphics when possible. Instructions to Authors are published in the Bulletin and available from the Editor in-chief Martin Culshaw and the co-editor Roger Cojean.
Springer-Verlag are at the forefront of publishing technology.
Contributors are welcome to submit additional data supporting their published paper, in the form of tables or videos which can be accessed through the Internet.
Springer-Verlag also provide a Link system by which readers can access information about current and past issues of the Bulletin or other journals on the internet, further enhancing the opportunity of authors to disseminate their work to a wider readership.
