The journal has as its objective the publication and wide electronic dissemination of innovative and consequential research in mechanics of materials and deformable structures of all types. Analytical, computational, and experimental results must serve to clarify physical phenomena that typically involve small or large deformation states. Methods that can be generalized to a wider class of problems are encouraged.


Drawing from all areas of engineering, materials, and biology, the mechanics of solids, materials, and structures is experiencing considerable growth in directions not anticipated a few years ago, which involve the development of new technology requiring multidisciplinary simulation. The journal stimulates this growth by emphasizing fundamental advances that are relevant in dealing with problems of all length scales. Of growing interest are the multiscale problems with an interaction between small and large scale phenomena.

Peer Review

Every paper submitted to JoMMS is subjected to stringent peer review. An article that is favorably rated by external reviewers will be recommended by the handling editor to the whole Editorial Board, where it must receive the endorsement of a majority of Board members in order to be accepted for publication.

JoMMS is a selective journal and submissions are thoroughly reviewed. Currently the acceptance rate is about 20% of submitted papers. The time from submission to publication of an accepted paper varies from a few weeks to a year or more, depending on the ease of finding reviewers, the number of revisions required, and other factors.

Indexing and Impact Factor

In 2009, JoMMS was included in the Thomson Reuter's Web of Science Science Citation Index. The 2014 impact factor of JoMMS was 1.038.

JoMMS is also covered by Current Contents – Engineering, Computing & Tech­no­logy.


JoMMS is published by MSP (Mathematical Sciences Publishers), alongside other top journals. MSP is a nonprofit who believes that fair-priced scholar-led subscription journals remain the best stewards of quality and fairness, and strives to offer the highest quality at the lowest sustainable prices. MSP also developed EditFlow, the popular peer-review web application.

Impartiality Statement

The purpose of JoMMS is the advancement of science. Editors evaluate submitted papers strictly on the basis of scientific merit with the help of peer review reports, without regard to authors’ nationality, country of residence, institutional affiliation, gender, ethnic origin, religion, or political views.
