Discussion Topic : Invitation to Contribute to the Special Issue “Behavior of Expansive Soils and its Shrinkage Cracking

Dear Group Members,

We are organizing a special issue that may be of interest to you. As Guest Editors, we cordially invite you to submit a manuscript for consideration and possible publication in a Special Issue on Behavior of Expansive Soils and its Shrinkage Cracking to be published in Geosciences (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/geosciences), an open access journal on geoscience, future earth and planetary science, published monthly online by MDPI, indexed by *Scopus* (citescore 1.97) and *ESCI* (Web of Science).

The deadline for manuscript submission is 30 June 2019. For more details please visit the website:


Geosciences is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. For this special issue, MDPI will provide vouchers to accepted review articles, which means they will be published free of charge. Articles are expected to come from top experts (H-index > 10).

For further details on the submission process, please see the instructions for authors on the journal website (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/geosciences/instructions).

We look forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
