Focus and Scope

Regional Journal in Mechanical Engineering and Advanced Materials for Young Researchers and Innovators (RJMEAM) aims to provide a platform for young researchers and innovators in ASEAN countries especially undergraduate students to promote, share and discuss their works about the theory and application of mechanical engineering and advanced materials.

The journal publishes research manuscripts dealing with problems of modern technology (power and process engineering, structural and machine design, production engineering mechanism and materials, etc.). It considers activities such as design, construction, operation, environmental protection, etc. in the field of mechanical engineering and other related branches. In addition, the journal also publishes papers in advanced materials related with advanced electronic materials, advanced energy materials, advanced engineering materials, advanced functional materials, advanced materials interfaces, and advanced optical materials.

Submitted papers will be double reviewed; accepted papers will be available on-line (free access) as well as in printed version.

Peer Review Process

Upon receiving a new manuscript, the Editorial office conducts initial pre-refereeing checks to ensure the article is legible, complete, correctly formatted, original, within the scope of the journal in question, in the style of a scientific article and written in clear English. Any article that has problems with any of the above criteria may be rejected at this stage.

Articles passing successfully through the pre-refereeing stage then begin formal peer review.

Research papers submitted for publication in IJIMEAM are generally sent to two independent referees who are asked to report on the quality, novelty, scientific rigour, significance to the field and presentation.

Referees are selected from our reviewer database and we try to find the best combination of scientific expertise and referee experience for each paper.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
