Journal of Geophysical Research (JGR) publishes original scientific research on the physical, chemical, and biological processes that contribute to the understanding of the Earth, Sun, and solar system and all of their environments and components. JGR is currently organized into seven disciplinary sections (Atmospheres, Biogeosciences, Earth Surface, Oceans, Planets, Solid Earth, Space Physics). Sections may be added or combined in response to changes in the science. Journal of Geophysical Research–Oceans embraces the application of physics, chemistry, biology, and geology to the study of the oceans and their interaction with other components of the Earth system. Deepening the integrated knowledge of the sea utilizes new observational, analytical, computational and modeling capabilities to build upon established approaches in all areas of marine science.

The objective of the Journal of Petroleum Science and Engineering is to bridge the gap between the engineering, the geology and the science of petroleum and natural gas by publishing explicitly written articles intelligible to scientists and engineers working in any field of petroleum engineering, natural gas engineering and petroleum (natural gas) geology. An attempt is made in all issues to balance the subject matter and to appeal to a broad readership. The ASME Journal of Heat Transfer disseminates information of permanent interest in the areas of heat and mass transfer. Contributions may consist of results from fundamental research that apply to thermal energy or mass transfer in all fields of mechanical engineering and related disciplines. The ASME Journal of Heat Transfer is complementary to the ASME Journal of Applied Thermal Science and Engineering Applications, which focuses on applications.

International Journal for Numerical and Analytical Methods in Geomechanics welcomes manuscripts that substantially contribute to the understanding of the complex mechanical behaviour of geomaterials (soils, rocks, concrete, ice, snow, and powders), through innovative experimental techniques, and/or through the development of novel numerical or hybrid experimental/numerical modelling concepts in geomechanics.. Established in 1948, Géotechnique is the world's premier geotechnics journal, publishing research of the highest quality on all aspects of geotechnical engineering. Géotechnique provides access to rigorously refereed, current, innovative and authoritative research and practical papers, across the fields of soil and rock mechanics, engineering geology and environmental geotechnics.

The International Journal of Solid and Structures has as its objective the publication and dissemination of original research in Mechanics of Solids and Structures as a field of Applied Science and Engineering. It fosters thus the exchange of ideas among workers in different parts of the world and also among workers who emphasize different aspects of the foundations and applications of the field. The purpose of International Journal of Plasticity is to report original research on all aspects of plastic deformation, damage and fracture behaviour of isotropic as well as anisotropic solids, including the thermodynamics of plasticity and fracture, continuum theory, and macroscopic as well as microscopic phenomena.

Transport in Porous Media publishes original research on the physical and chemical aspects of transport of extensive quantities such as mass of a fluid phase, mass of a component of a phase, momentum and energy, in single and multiphase flow in a (possibly deformable) porous medium domain. These are presented in the context of chemical, civil, agricultural, petroleum and mechanical engineering.

中国科学G辑(Science China Physics, Mechanics & Astronomy)  is an academic journal co-sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the National Natural Science Foundation of China, and published by Science China Press, is committed to publishing high-quality, original results in both basic and applied research.


 International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers was granted on September 15, 1989 the status of tax-exempt, non-profit scientific and educational organization under Code 501(c)(3) from the United States Internal Revenue Code. The ISOPE opened its offices initially in the USA, Japan, Korea, China, the UK and Norway. The Society membership is open equally to all with active interest in promoting engineering and scientific progress in the fields of interdisciplinary offshore, ocean and polar engineering. The membership comes initially from more than 30 countries, and encompasses a variety of activities including technical conferences, publications, scholarship and professional recognition programs, continuing education, and international cooperation. International Conference on Gas Hydrates The International Conference on Gas Hydrates (ICGH) takes place every three years in a different country around the world. It brings together a diverse group of scientists and engineers with a common interest in gas hydrates. The first ICGH took place in New Paltz, New York ( USA ) in 1993. The conference has since been held in Toulouse (France) in 1996, Salt Lake City (USA) in 1999, Yokohama (Japan) in 2002, Trondheim (Norway) in 2005, Vancouver ( Canada ) in 2008. At the 7th ICGH in Edinburgh (UK) in 2011 Beijing ( China ) was selected as host for the 8th conference. Please accept my invitation to attend the 8th ICGH in Beijing from 28 July to 1 August 2014. China is hosting this prestigious conference for the gas hydrate community on behalf of Asia . 

The aim of the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering is the promotion of international co-operation amongst engineers and scientists for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge in the field of geotechnics, and its engineering and environmental applications. International Association for Engineering Geology was founded in 1964 and is affiliated to the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS). IAEG is a worldwide scientific society with more than 5,200 members and 59 national groups. The official languages of the IAEG are English and French.
