About the Journal

Aims and Scope

The Open Mechanical Engineering Journal is an open access online journal, which publishes high quality research articles, reviews/mini-reviews, letters and guest edited single topic issues, in all important areas of mechanical engineering. The journal encourages submissions related to the following fields of mechanical engineering:

  • Hydromechanics, aerodynamics, thermodynamics
  • Principles of the micro-macro transition
  • Constitutive relations; and microstructure property relationships
  • Elastic behavior; plastic behavior; high-temperature creep, fatigue, and fracture
  • Mechanical behavior; environmental effects
  • Metals, polymers, ceramics, intermetallics
  • Machining; nonconventional machining, materials processing
  • Theory of machines and mechanisms, vibration and balancing of machine parts
  • Stability of mechanical systems, mechanics of continuum
  • Heat transfer
  • Thermo fluids and nanofluids
  • Other related areas

The Open Mechanical Engineering Journal, a peer-reviewed journal, is an important and reliable source of current information on recent developments in the field. The emphasis will be on publishing quality papers and making them rapidly and freely available to researchers worldwide.
