Mechanical Engineering – Scientific Journal (MESJ) is published twice annually (for the time-being). The journal publishes original scientific papers, short communications and reviews from all fields of engineering and technology:
• Original scientific papers should contain hitherto unpublished results of completed original scientific research. The number of pages (including tables and figures) should not exceed 8.
• Short communications should also contain completed but briefly presented results of original scientific research. The number of pages (including tables and figures) should not exceed 4.
• Reviews are submitted at the invitation of the Editorial Board. They should be surveys of the investigations and knowledge of several authors in a given research area. The competency of the authors should be assured by their own published results.
The journal, also publishes (continuously or occasionally) book reviews, reports on meetings, news of future meetings, important events and dates, and various rubrics, which contribute to the development of the corresponding scientific fields.
