The journal Mechanical Sciences (MS) is an international forum for the dissemination of original contributions in the field of theoretical and applied mechanics. Its main ambition is to provide a platform for young researchers to build up a portfolio of high-quality peer-reviewed journal articles.
In the coming days and weeks, readers of our journals will experience a facelift of our websites. Read more about the background.
Copernicus Publications is delighted to announce a new agreement with the UK-based Jisc (Joint Information Systems Committee) to streamline open-access publishing for their members. Read more.
The ETH Domain institutions PSI, Empa, Eawag, WSL and Copernicus Publications have signed an agreement on the central settlement of article processing charges (APCs).
To show our support for Ukraine, all fees for papers from authors (first or corresponding authors) affiliated to Ukrainian institutions are automatically waived, regardless if these papers are co-authored by scientists affiliated to Russian and/or Belarusian institutions. The only exception will be if the corresponding author or first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) are from a Russian and/or Belarusian institution, in that case the APCs are not waived.
In accordance with current European restrictions, Copernicus Publications does not step into business relations with and issue APC-invoices (articles processing charges) to Russian and Belarusian institutions. The peer-review process and scientific exchange of our journals including preprint posting is not affected. However, these restrictions require that the first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) has an affiliation and invoice address outside Russia or Belarus.
