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.

News
21 Aug 2020 New focus areas for MS

In response to the large number of submissions being received, Mechanical Sciences now encourages authors to submit manuscripts with the following three focus areas only: mechanisms and robotics, dynamics and control, and machining and manufacturing processes. Submissions outside these three areas may be rejected without review.
