Aims & Scopes

Journal of Mechanical Engineering (formerly known as Journal of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering) or JMechE, is an international journal which provides a forum for researchers and academicians worldwide to publish the research findings and the educational methods they are engaged in. This Journal acts as a vital link for the mechanical engineering community for rapid dissemination of their academic pursuits.

Contributions are invited from various disciplines that are allied to mechanical engineering. The contributions should be based on original research works. All papers submitted to JMechE are subjected to a reviewing process through a worldwide network of specialized and competent referees. To be considered for publication, each paper should have at least two positive referee’s assessments.

General Instructions

Manuscripts intended for publication in JMechE should be written in camera-ready form with production-quality figures and done electronically in Microsoft Word 2000 (or above) and submitted online to [email protected]. Manuscripts should be typed using Times New Roman font (point 10) and single-spaced. The manuscript should include the title of the paper; the author’s name and affiliation; a short abstract of between 200 and 300 words which clearly summaries the paper; and a list of keywords. Limit your submission to a maximum of 20 typed pages. The specified typesetter template can be downloaded here.


Keywords supplied by the author should appear on a line following the abstract. The keywords selected should be comprehensive and subject specific. Maximum of five keywords should be sufficient to cover the major subjects of a given paper. General terms should not appear as keywords, as they have little use as information retrieval tools. Please choose keywords to be as specific as possible and list the most specific first, proceeding to the most general last.


All scientific and technical data presented should be stated in SI units.


Footnotes should be kept to an absolute minimum and used only when essential.


Formulae should be typewritten using MS Word compatible Equation Editor.


Tables, should be included within the text where appropriate and must be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals and have titles that precede the table. They should be prepared in such a manner that no break is necessary.


Authors should appreciate the importance of good-quality illustrations. All graphs and diagrams should be referred to, for example, Figure 1 in the text. All figures must be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. A detailed caption should be provided below each figure according to the following format:

Figure 1: (a) A simple 2-D cantilever and (b) microcantilever with a diamond probe.

Figures should be embedded within the text where appropriate. Glossy photographs when required should be scanned to a resolution suitable with the reproduction requirements (1200 dpi generally will be sufficient).


Use squared brackets to indicate reference citation such as [1], [3]-[5] in the main text. Include references at the end of the paper according to the citations order that appears in the paper using the following format.
