Aims and Scope

The journal Mechanical Sciences (MS) intends to be an international forum for dissemination of original contributions in the field of theoretical and applied mechanics. The main ambition is to provide a platform for young researchers to build up a portfolio of high quality peer-reviewed journal articles. To this end we employ an open access publication model with moderate page charges, aiming at fast time to publication and great citation opportunity. A large board of reputable Editors is making this possible. The journal will also publish special issues dealing with the current state of the art and future research directions in mechanical sciences. While in-depth research articles are preferred, also review articles and short communications will be considered. We intend and believe to provide a means of publication which complements established journals in the field.

Subject Areas

The journal will cover at least the following areas, while it is open to emerging fields:

  • Solid Mechanics;
  • Structural Mechanics;
  • Mechanics of Materials;
  • Mechanisms and Robotics;
  • Dynamics and Control;
  • Sound and Vibrations;
  • Fluid Mechanics;
  • Heat Transfer and Thermal Systems;
  • Machining and Manufacturing Processes;
  • Micro and Nano Systems;
  • Biomechanics;
  • Geomechanics.

Techniques and Approaches

The journal welcomes papers with various characters, including the following:

  • Synthesis;
  • Mathematical Modeling and Analysis;
  • Numerical Modeling and Analysis;
  • CAD/CAE;
  • Experiment and Best Practice;
  • Optimization;
  • Reliability and Probability Analysis.
