Underground Space

Underground Space, an international journal serving as a scientific forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of underground engineering, welcomes manuscripts that deal with original theories, methods, technologies, and important applications throughout the life-cycle of underground projects, including planning, design, operation and maintenance, disaster prevention, and demolition. The journal is particularly interested in manuscripts related to the latest development of smart underground engineering from the perspectives of resilience, resources saving, environmental friendliness, humanity, and artificial intelligence. The manuscripts are expected to have significant innovation and potential impact in the field of underground engineering, and should have clear association with or application in underground projects. The following are some examples about whether or not a manuscript is considered within the scope of this journal:

  • A manuscript on constitutive modeling with no significant connection with underground space is out of the scope of the journal, but a manuscript about constitutive modeling for solving underground space problems such as predicting tunnel deformation and stability is considered within the scope of the journal.
  • A manuscript on piling engineering with no significant connection with underground space is out of the scope of the journal, but a manuscript about the interactions between piles and underground structures such as tunnels is considered within the scope of the journal.
  • A manuscript on slope stability with no significant connection with underground space is out of the scope of the journal, but a manuscript about the interaction between slopes and underground structures such as tunnels is considered within the scope of the journal.

Journal Metrics
CiteScore: 4.7
CiteScore:
2020: 4.7
CiteScore measures the average citations received per peer-reviewed document published in this title. CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a range of four years (e.g. 2017-2020) to peer-reviewed documents (articles, reviews, conference papers, data papers and book chapters) published in the same four calendar years, divided by the number of these documents in these same four years (e.g. 2017–2020).
Journal Citation Reports (Scopus, 2021)
Impact Factor: 2.824
Impact Factor:
2020: 2.824
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.
Journal Citation Reports (Clarivate Analytics, 2020)
5-Year Impact Factor: 2.952
Five-Year Impact Factor:
2020: 2.952
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2020 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.
Journal Citation Reports (Clarivate Analytics, 2020)
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.734
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
2019: 1.734
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.774
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
2019: 0.774
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
