• Romanian Journal of Mechanics (RJM) aims to foster communication between scientists publishing high quality, innovative research covering a broad range of subject areas in the field of Theoretical, Applied and Experimental Mechanics.

  • RJM is one of the publicatinos of the Romanian Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (SRMTA). The SRMTA society is an association of scientists, researchers, professors, directors, managers, and Romanian engineers from various fields of applied and theoretical mechanics.

  • The RJM seeks to publish those papers that are most influential in their fields or across fields and that will significantly advance scientific understanding, and new ideas that may be in formative stages. We welcome submissions that present novel, open-mindedly syntheses or concept, to merit the recognition by the scientific community. The RJM  publishes, as rapidly as possible, peer-reviewed manuscripts of high standards with minimum 4 pages and maximum 12 pages length. It aims to provide an exchange of ideas among scientists and workers in mechanics and an effective method of bringing new results to the academic world. The field of Mechanics encompasses the behavior of continua, solids, particles and their mixtures, associated with technical, mechanical, structural, civil, aeronautical and control systems. Also, the field of Mechanics explores Experimental Mechanics, including its theoretical and computational analysis. Furthermore, specific research as well as general works in the usefulness of historical research in the work of today's scientists in mechanics, are well come.

  • The peer review policy of the RJM is applied to ensure that excellent research is published. The journal has a quality control system based on the quality of publication, manuscript quality, presentational quality and editorial quality.  The evaluation process consists of two stages:

  1. The Editors first evaluate all manuscripts to fulfill the minimum criteria. Those rejected at this stage are outside the aims and scope of the journal, insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws or have poor grammar.
  2. The manuscripts passing the minimum criteria will be reviewed by two referees, typically within 4 weeks. If the referees' reports contradict one another or a report is unreasonably delayed, a further expert opinion will be sought. Referees may request more than one revision of a manuscript.
