Dear friends,
this time we have some news concerning the journal website.
In order to improve the journal website readability, especially using mobile devices, we modified the home page as follows:
- “Online first” papers are now available in a dedicated page (the link is available in the main menu).
- It is possible to be forwarded to the Visual Abstracts YouTube channel using the dedicated link in the column on the right side of the screen.
- The users reports are now collected in a dedicated page of the web site (the link is available in the column on the right side of the screen)
- The “Most Read Articles” section now offers the most read 15 papers in the last 365 days. Results are updated every 15 days.

I wish to remember to all the members of our community that the next IGF conference (IGF27, the 27th International Conference on Fracture and Structural Integrity; will be held in Rome and on web, (February 22-24, 2023).
I wish to underline the 100% of the fees will be used for the:
- event organisation;
- publication of the dedicated Procedia Structural Integrity issue;
- publication of the IGF journal Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale;
- all the other IGF activities (e.g., the website publication).
If you love Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale, and you appreciate it as a good Diamond Open Access journal (no APC), you have only to:
- participate to the IGF27;
- consider Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale for your refs, if you find papers of your interest!
Looking forward to meeting you in Rome!
