An international journal ‘Studia Geotechnica et Mechanica’ covers new developments in the broad areas of geomechanics as well as structural mechanics. The journal welcomes contributions dealing with original theoretical, numerical as well as experimental work. The following topics are of special interest:
Constitutive relations for geomaterials (soils, rocks, concrete, etc.)
Modeling of mechanical behaviour of heterogeneous materials at different scales
Analysis of coupled thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical problems
Modeling of instabilities and localized deformation
Experimental investigations of material properties at different scales
Numerical algorithms: formulation and performance
Application of numerical techniques to analysis of problems involving foundations, underground structures, slopes and embankment

Only original papers will be accepted and copyright in published papers will be vested in the publisher.
The language of the journal is English.
Manuscripts should be typed double spaced with wide margins on the left side of the sheet. The text should be in simple-column format. Please, keep the layout of the text as simple as possible.
A title page is to be provided and should include the title of the paper, name(s) and affiliation(s) (including e-mail address(es)) of author(s) as well as abstract. The title should be brief and informative. The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the work, the major results and conclusions. The abstract should not exceed 250 words. Correspondence will be sent to the first-named author, unless otherwise specified.
References to published literature should be prepared in APA style. Detailed description of APA referncing style can be dowloaded from the journal site menu.
Tables should be titled and numbered consecutively. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Tables should not repeat the data, which are available elsewhere in the paper, e.g. in a diagram.
Equations that have to be displayed separately from the text should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in parentheses placed flush right, and should be thus referred to in the text [such as Eq. (1) or (1)].
Figures should be embedded in the text, numbered consecutively and titled.
Authors are encouraged to use the SI-system of units.
