Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale (Fracture and Structural Integrity) is the International Journal of the Italian Group of Fracture (ISSN 1971-8993). It is an open-access journal published online every three months (January, April, July, October). 
Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale encompasses the broad topic of structural integrity, which is based on the mechanics of fatigue and fracture and is concerned with the reliability and effectiveness of structural components. The aim of the Journal is to promote works and researches on fracture phenomena, as well as the development of new materials and new standards for structural integrity assessment. The Journal is interdisciplinary and accepts contributions from engineers, metallurgists, materials scientists, physicists, chemists, and mathematicians. The Journal is completely free of charge, both for Readers and for Authors (no APC).

More details:

- The Journal is financially supported by the Italian Group of Fracture (IGF) and by crowdfunding. It is completely free of charge both for readers and for authors. Neither processing charges nor submission charges are required.

- Papers can be published only after a preliminary plagiarism/autoplagiarism check and a blind peer-review process (two reviewers, at least). More than one reviewing rounds are possible.

- The Journal is well indexed (e.g., Scopus, since 2012, and WoS, since 2015).

- All the papers are published with their Visual Abstracts (2 minutes max videos with the "cores" of the papers). All the Visual Abstracts are available both in a dedicated YouTube channel and in an "on demand" page (LINK).  All the issues are also published in a browsable version (LINK).

The browsable version is available at this link: LINK

Dear friends,
we continuously try to implement new features in our journal. The last ones we activated are:
- the list of the most used keywords … it is available as a nice “words salad” (home page, on the right side). Click on one of them … you will obtain the papers connected with the selected keyword!
- “Online First” papers are now available also in the home page, in order to improve their visibility.
- the number of visitors per country (with flags): the number is only approximative (and the counting started only a few days ago), but the feature offers a nice view of the international level of our journal.
- the list of the “Most viewed papers”: this list is available in the home page.
Please, in order to further improve our journal, do not hesitate to send us your suggestions using this LINK
We will really appreciate your help and we will do our best to implement your suggestions.

Concerning Citescore, the last update is really interesting: if the 2020 Citescore is 2.0 (calculated on 05 May, 2021), the CiteScoreTracker 2021 is now 2.2 (last update: 04 September 2021)!!! Let’s work all together to further improve the journal Citescore value!! … we only ask you to:
- read the papers we will publish in the journal;
- help our journal, using its papers in your references, spreading the information in the socials etc.;
- suggest any possible improvement you could have in your mind;
- submit new papers to be reviewed and published;
- help us with the reviews (in order to certify your activity as reviewer, we activated an agreement with Publons).
