CJRME (Chinese Journal of Rock Mechanics and Engineering) started in 1982. It is an academic publication under the auspice of Chinese Society for Rock Mechanics and Engineering which published monthly mainly in Chinese. Its main scope is focused on the issues of rock mechanics and rock engineering, furthermore, it provides opportunities for overseas colleagues to obtain the current development informations of rock mechanics and geotechnical engineering in China. The topics of CJRSM coveres theories, new developments, methods, experiences, in-situ and laboratory tests, and trends of rock mechanics and geotechnical engineering in China and overseas.
Recently, the Journal published several special issues related to the significant projects in China Such as Three Gorges Project, Jinping I and II Hydropower Station, Qinghai-Tibet Railway, West Route of South-North Water Transfer Project etc.. The Journal reports latest developments in rock mechanics and rock engineering development in detail, and forcefully prompts the technological development in relative fields. For its outstanding effects on geotechnical engineering, it receives many honors recently, such as the “100 Outstanding Academic Journals of China 2003”, “100 Outstanding Academic Journals of China 2005”, “The Selected Scientific Journal of Chinese Association for Science and Technology”，etc..
