Mechanics, Materials Science & Engineering journal (MMSE) is an interdisciplinary journal in materials
science, mechanics, engineering, civil engineering, automation, electronics etc. fields with the purpose
of reporting scientific advancements of the highest quality, providing research from new techniques in
multiple natural sciences, instrumentation, modelling and control, materials science. MMSE journal
papers are expected to make a demonstrable original contribution to engineering knowledge, which
should be significant in terms of advancement over established methods. Especially sought are papers
that include both theoretical and experimental aspects, or that include theoretical material of high
relevance to practical applications. MMSE journal is going to be a leader in its field and research areas
covered including:
I. Materials Science (Materials Sciences)
II. Mechanical Engineering & Physics (Engineering)
III. Electrical Complexes and Systems (Energy)
IV. Environmental Safety (Earth & Planetary Science)
