Mobile phone users are kindly asked to rotate their devices horizontally while viewing the webpage in order to see the “Submit” and the “Editorial” sections.

You are welcome to submit your paper to our journal! The publication fee (APC – Article Processing Charges) amounts to €500.
For a limited time only, we have a promotion for publication fee of €250 for each high quality paper!
A limited number of articles in each volume (2019-2021) is financially supported by Knowledge Unlatched. This means that the APCs charged by the journal will be covered by KU for the first 20 articles in each year!

Your benefits:

  • Broad range of imperative topics from condensed to soft matter mechanics
  • Cutting edge theory, simulations and experiments used as tools for novel applications
  • High quality peer-review

All participants of the 2019 AlChE Annual Meeting in Orlando, FL are welcome to submit their manuscripts in this journal on special conditions. For details, please visit this website.

The Journal of the Mechanical Behavior of Materials (JMBM) publishes articles on original research, short communications and reviews covering all natural and modern engineering materials. Contributions on interdisciplinary high risk-high gain or unconventional approaches in topics spanning the whole range from condensed to soft matter mechanics are particularly welcome.

The journal focuses on the micromechanics and nanomechanics of materials, the relationship between structure and mechanical properties, material instabilities and fracture, as well as size effects and length/time scale transitions. Articles on cutting edge theory, simulations and experiments – used as tools for revealing novel material properties and designing new devices for structural, thermo-chemo-mechanical, and opto-electro-mechanical applications – are encouraged. Synthesis/processing and related traditional mechanics/materials science themes are not within the scope of JMBM. The Editorial Board also organizes topical issues on emerging areas by invitation.

  • Metals and Alloys
  • Ceramics and Glasses
  • Soils and Geomaterials
  • Concrete and Cementitious Materials
  • Polymers and Composites
  • Wood and Paper
