Aims and Scope
In the current world of Mechanics and Materials, researchers tend to focus on only one out of theoretical, computational or experimental fields. While there is a trend towards interaction among the different groups, this is presently very limited. The editor-in-chief’s vision for the journal is for it to act as a platform from which to bring together the different kinds of research, to help researchers interact better, and to promote the state-of-the-art development of the subject area to a higher level.
The journal publishes original research work on the modeling of civil, ocean, mechanical and aerospace engineering systems, both small-scale and large-scale, with multidisciplinary applications, focusing on understanding and predicting material behaviors through modeling. However, its emphasis is not just on computational issues relating to modeling within Mechanics and Materials, but also on theoretical developments, computational techniques, experimental work and field investigations.

Submission of Manuscripts
Submission of Manuscripts
Manuscripts should be submitted online to https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmmm
Acceptance for publication is subject to the manuscript being an unpublished work. Submission of a manuscript is taken to imply that it is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Submission and acceptance of a paper implies the transfer of copyright to de Gruyter.
Articles should be submitted electronically to the online submission system. Please include figure-, image-, graph- or equation files in the document.Please avoid unnecessarily large files. The SI system is to be used throughout and if it is necessary to quote other units then these should be added in parentheses. The use of unnecessarily complicated notation and formulae should be avoided and the material should be presented in the simplest possible manner.
The manuscript is expected to be written in correct and easily readable English. An author who is not proficient in English is advised to seek help in editing the manuscript before submission. Both English and American spellings are acceptable, but each paper is expected to follow one style consistently.
Title: in concise form, with wording helping automatic searches, but no superfluous words.
Authors' names: first name in full, other initial(s), family name in full.
Authors' affiliations: postal addresses, e-mail addresses.
Abstract: of less than 150 words written as a 'free standing' paragraph and containing key objectives and conclusions.
2. SECTIONS: CAPITALISED HEADINGS; lower case sub heads
Equations should be numbered sequentially in brackets (..) to the right margin. Within the text, an equation is referred to as 'eqn (..)', or equations as 'eqns ( .. - ..)'.
References to published work should be numbered sequentially in the order of citation and a reference list in numerical order should be given at the end of the paper.
For an article in a journal, the entry in the reference list must contain the following details:
Name(s) and initial(s) of the author(s), title of article, title of journal (italic), year of publication, volume number (followed by the issue number in parentheses, if known), initial and final page numbers of the article.
The entry in the reference list for a book must contain the following details:
Name(s) and initial(s) of the author(s), title of book (italic), edition (unless first edition), publisher, place of publication, year of publication, initial and final page numbers of the part referred to, if applicable.
