Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology is owned by the Geological Society of London and published by the Geological Society Publishing House.

Quarterly Journal of Engineering Geology & Hydrogeology (QJEGH) is an established international journal featuring papers on geology as applied to civil engineering mining practice and water resources. Papers are invited from, and about, all areas of the world on engineering geology and hydrogeology topics. This includes but is not limited to: applied geophysics, engineering geomorphology, environmental geology, hydrogeology, groundwater quality, ground source heat, contaminated land, waste management, land use planning, geotechnics, rock mechanics, geomaterials and geological hazards.

The journal publishes the prestigious Glossop and Ineson lectures, research papers, case histories, review articles, technical notes, photographic features, thematic sets, discussion papers, editorial opinion and book reviews.
