Types of published papers

  1. Survey articles that present a contemporary state and trends of development of knowledge within the scope of particular subjects within the area of mechanization engineering.
  2. Scientific articles including original results of the completed theoretical or experimental studies, the content of which may influence the increase of the scientific knowledge concerning mechanical engineering.
  3. Scientific messages, presenting separated fragments of the research that are being carried out, and original research stands, methods of measures or methods of elaboration of the results of measures.

The process of review

  1. At least two independent reviewers outside the unit of the author are appointed for assessment of each paper.
  2. In case of texts which were written in a foreign language, at least one reviewer is appointed from a foreign institution other than the author's nationality.
  3. Authors and reviewers do not know each other’s identity (double-blind review process).
  4. The review should be made in writing and should have a final conclusion, determining whether the project can be published or rejected.
  5. The principles of qualification of articles for publication are given on the web page of the publisher.
  6. Surnames of reviewers of particular articles are not revealed, the journal publishes the list of reviewers on the web page.

Rejection Rate: 35%
