Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.659 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.248 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.697 (2017) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Description



Mechanics of Materials, a journal in the field of solid mechanics and materials, aims to disseminate quality research work in the broad spectrum of engineering and natural materials. It reports original research with a mechanically oriented description of substructures from nano- to macro-scales encompassing time-dependent and time-independent behaviors, material instabilities, damage and fracture mechanisms, and interactions between mechanics and electricity, chemistry and optics. Particular emphasis is placed on the inspection of strain rates, spatio-temporal scales, inception of microstructural features and their evolution, and couplings between mechanics and transport phenomena.



The journal also focusses on the thermo-mechanical constitutive response of metals, polymers, soft materials, bio-materials, natural materials, ceramics, metallic glasses, granular materials, composites, shape-memory alloys, nanostructured materials, etc. Mechanics-based investigations on emerging areas such as 3D printing, additive manufacturing, bio-inspired materials, 2D materials, e.g., graphene and thin films, are encouraged. Articles that describe combined experimental/computational/analytical approaches in the above fields are also of interest.



To foster interest and promote discussion among researchers on new mechanics concepts or new material mechanisms, short articles which will undergo fast-track review for rapid dissemination are solicited. Special issues on topical research areas by guest editors, review articles and surveys by experts in emerging research fields are also welcome upon approval by the editorial board.
