             abstract = "Standard sirens are the gravitational wave (GW) analog of the 
                         astronomical standard candles and can provide powerful information 
                         about the dynamics of the Universe. In this work, we simulate a 
                         catalog with 1000 standard siren events from binary neutron star 
                         mergers, within the sensitivity predicted for the third generation 
                         of the ground GW detector called the Einstein Telescope (ET). 
                         After correctly modifying the propagation of GWs as input to 
                         generate the catalog, we apply our mock dataset on scalar-tensor 
                         theories where the speed of GW propagation is equal to the speed 
                         of light. As a first application, we find new observational bounds 
                         on the running of the Planck mass, when considering appropriate 
                         values within the stability condition of the theory, and we 
                         discuss some consequences on the amplitude of the running of the 
                         Planck mass. In the second part, we combine our simulated standard 
                         sirens catalog with other geometric cosmological tests (supernovae 
                         la and cosmic chronometer measurements) to constrain the 
                         Hu-Sawicki f (R) gravity model. We thus find new and non-null 
                         deviations from the standard ACDM model, showing that in the 
                         future f (R) gravity can be tested up to 95% confidence level. The 
                         results obtained here show that the statistical accuracy 
                         achievable by future ground-based GW observations, mainly with the 
                         ET detector (and planned detectors with a similar sensitivity), 
                         can provide strong observational bounds on modified gravity
