Editorial Policies

Aims and Scope

The journal publishes results (model building, analytical, numerical and experimental) in the field of mechanics that have not been previously published and are not intended for simultaneous publication elsewhere, with the exception of the journal "Doklady RAN", in the following areas:

  • general mechanics or systems mechanics,
  • fluid mechanics,
  • mechanics of solids,
  • mathematical methods in mechanics,
  • multidisciplinary problems of mechanics (biomechanics, geomechanics, etc.).

The journal also publishes review articles in these areas. Authors are required to meet the quality demands of the publisher. An impersonal presentation is recommended.


Peer Review Process

Approximately half of the manuscripts are rejected without review based on formal criteria as they do not comply with the submission guidelines. Each manuscript is sent to one or two external peer reviewers. The journal follows a single-blind reviewing procedure. The average period from submission to the first decision is usually at most 45 days. The approximate rejection rate is lower than 10%. The final decision on the acceptance of a manuscript for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief, the Coordinating Editor, or other Editors.

If Editors publish in the journal, a senior member of the Editorial Board is assigned to assume responsibility for overseeing peer review and making decisions regarding the acceptance or rejection of any manuscript submitted and/or co-authored by the editors. In that case, Editors do not participate in making decisions on manuscripts where they are listed as co-authors.
