On behalf of the Editorial Board, it is our privilege to present the inaugural issue of the Annals of Earth, Environment, and Infrastructure Engineering, caringly shortened as AEEIE. We are enthusiastic to bring a change in the world of open-access publishing and aim to be a role model for open-access journals in India. We have launched this journal to provide good opportunities to students, researchers, and academicians to get their work reviewed, improved and published at low article processing charges without sacrificing the quality of the content and publishing ethics. The seasoned academicians from reputed institutes and research institutes and laboratories have been added to the editorial board.


Annals of Earth, Environment, and Infrastructure Engineering is an open-access electronic journal. Original peer-reviewed articles are published in the journal in different categories like research papers, review papers, technical notes, case studies, and conference proceedings. The journal covers a broad spectrum of topics in Civil Engineering such as Geotechnical Engineering, Rock Mechanics, Soil Dynamics, Engineering Geology, Geophysics, Earthquake Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Structural Engineering, Structural Dynamics, Water Resource Engineering, Irrigation Engineering, and other related inter-disciplinary fields.


The inaugural issue has 5 papers, details of which are as follows:
