Attention - Present changes

Journal publishing present achievements in general field of Mechanical Engineering.

Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering publishes original papers, notes, and invited review articles from all fields of theoretical and applied mechanics as well as mechanical engineering. In addition to the classical fields, such as Rigid Body Dynamics, Elasticity, Plasticity, Hydrodynamics and Gas Dynamics, it gives special attention to recently developed and boundary areas of mechanics. As a rule, only contributions written in English will be accepted.

However, starting November 2, we are suspending the acceptance of new proposals pending the announcement of decision of the future of MME.

Payment by individuals always subject to VAT.
Payment by foreign institution to be made without VAT as it subjects to the tax locally.
Payment by Polish institution always subject to VAT.

Submission of manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis); that is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities at the institute where the work has been carried out; that, if, and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, by authors agree to automatic transfer of the copyright to the publisher; and that the manuscript will not be published elsewhere in any language without consent of the copyright holders.

Comparison with experiments/tests conducted by the authors or others to validate the main contribution of the paper are strongly encouraged to be presented in the Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering. Only original, innovative and novel papers will be considered for publication here and before considering their work, authors are required to confirm that their paper has not been submitted to any other journal in English or any other language. Occasionally, 'Letters to the Editor' are considered.

In 2018, Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering absorbed Cieplne Maszyny Przepływowe-Turbomachinery, a journal with more than 60-year-long tradition, covering current issues in power generation, environment protection and renewable energy resources as well as biomechanical problems and providing a platform for experienced researchers with academic background, specialists active in industrial applications and manufacturing technologies, as well as young scientists and students facing their first challenges in power engineering and related problems.

SCImago Journal & Country Rank

The current score according to the NEW classification of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education is 40 points granted to authors of published papers.

Informations for Authors

The author(s) have to declare transfer of the copyright to the editors, and authorize to use all materials contained in the filed article, including illustrations.
It is required to include a declaration stating contributions of individual authors in the preparation of any approved publication and sources of its financing, due to the applying procedures of ghostwriting and guest authorship.

Criteria for Publication

The first criterion of the publication remains its compliance with the field of research which are presented in this journal. The article is then transmitted to at least two Reviewers, they are not being in a conflict of interest with the author(s). The names of Reviewers of individual articles are not disclosed - the principle of confidentiality. The major criteria for publication are correctness, originality/novelty, interest, and accessibility. Referees are asked explicitly to assess the merit of papers in each of these four areas. Papers covering material previously published in any peer-reviewed journal will be returned to the corresponding author. Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering will consider for publication papers that contain some material previously published, but not yet peer reviewed, as in a non-peer-reviewed conference proceedings paper. However, such papers should have significant new content. Highly technical articles, even if correct and original, in particular subareas of nonlinear science may be rejected with the suggestion that they be submitted to a specialized journal.

Refereeing Procedures

The Editor-in-Chief of Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering, aided by the other members of the Editorial Board, is responsible for the content and other editorial matters related to the Journal. Submitted manuscripts are first screened by one or more of the editorial board members, and those within the scope of the Journal are sent to expert referees for evaluation. Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering strives to reach a decision on the basis of no more than two rounds of reviewing and only in exceptional cases will consider a third round of reviews. Significant changes in a resubmitted manuscript are typically reviewed by the editorial board members and the referee who requested the changes.
