In the past few years, the awareness that earthquake‐induced rotational effects can be significant in the near‐fault region of an earthquake, and the consequent implications in seismic engineering, has gained rotational seismology a strong recovery in the attention of the scientific community. Impulses came from direct observations as well as numerical simulations, and special volumes related to this topic have been recently published by the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (Lee et al., 2009) and by the Journal of Seismology (Igel et al., 2012). In particular, some of the most recent papers...
