Aims and scope
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. To this end we employ an open-access publication model with moderate page charges, aiming for fast publication and great citation opportunities. A large board of reputable editors makes 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, review articles and short communications will also be considered. We intend and believe to provide a means of publication which complements established journals in the field.
