Focus and Scope

International Journal of Innovation in Mechanical Engineering and Advanced Materials (IJIMEAM) aims to attain the state-of-the-art in theory and applications of mechanical engineering and advanced materials. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academia all over the world to promote, share and discuss various new issues and developments in the field. 
The journal publishes research manuscripts dealing with problems of modern technology and considers activities such as design, construction, operation, environmental protection, etc. in the field of mechanical engineering and advanced material science/engineering, such as,

  • Power engineering
  • Energy and thermal engineering
  • Aerodynamics and related fields
  • Renewable energy
  • Process engineering
  • Structural and mechanical design
  • Electronic materials
  • Energy materials
  • Engineering materials
  • Functional materials
  • Materials interfaces
  • Optical materials
  • Production engineering, mechanism, and management
  • Mechatronics and robotics
  • Control system/engineering
  • Agricultural engineering and mechanization
  • Environmental protection engineering
  • Health and safety in mechanical engineering
  • Applied computational science and engineering in related field problems
  • and other related branches

Submitted papers will be double-blind peer reviewed; accepted papers will be available online (free access) as well as in printed version (for subscription, contact ijimeam@mercubuana.ac.id).

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 double-blind 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.



This journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration. More...


Indexing and Abstracting

The goal of journal is to have indexed by Scopus, ISI Thomson Reuters, Ei Compendex, Cambridge Scientific Abstracts (CSA), etc.  Currently IJIMEAM is Abstracted and Indexed in: Google Scholar, Garuda, Dimensions, etc.


Plagiarism Policy

By submitting your manuscript to the journal it is understood that this it is an original manuscript and is unpublished work and is not under consideration elsewhere. Plagiarism, including duplicate publication of the author’s own work, in whole or in part without proper citation is not tolerated by the journal.

IJIMEAM will use Turnitin's (or similar) originality checking software as the tool in detecting similarities of texts in article manuscripts and the final version articles ready for publication. A maximum of 20% of similarities is allowed for the submitted papers. Should we find more than 20% of the similarity index, the article will be returned to the author for correction and re-submission.



The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behavior for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
