Founded in 1980 by CHIEN Wei-zang, a celebrated Chinese scientist in mechanics and mathematics, the Journal was a quarterly in the beginning, a bimonthly the next year, and then a monthly ever since 1985. It carries original research papers on mechanics, mathematical methods in mechanics and applied mathematics closely related to modern mechanics, as well as quality papers on mechanical & mathematical modeling and analysis in civil engineering, hydraulic engineering, highway and bridge engineering, navigation and shipbuilding, aeronautics and astronautics, mechanical engineering and metallurgy, national defense and military industry, disaster prevention and reduction, environmental engineering, energy engineering and biochemical engineering.
Applied Mathematics and Mechanics is a monthly journal of substantial academic strength at home and abroad, published by the Editorial Office of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, under the sponsorship of Chongqing Jiaotong University, and domestically issued by Chongqing Newspaper Publishing Agency and internationally by China International Book Trading Corporation; it is intended for researchers, engineers, students and concerned scholars in fields of mechanics, applied mathematics and related interdisciplines.
The Journal accepts contributions recommended by members of the Journal Editorial Board and welcomes non-recommended contributions as well. A recommended contribution shall bear a recommender-signed letter for the Editor-in-Chief’s review; upon its publication, the recommender’s name shall be placed under the paper title. Non-recommended contributions will go to editor review for formal examination, among which the qualified will be sent to peer review for academic advice, and the Editor-in-Chief will make the final decision on publication.
The Journal has been selected by such index systems as Chinese Science Citation Database (CSCD), Chinese Scientific and Technical Source Journal, Japan Science and Technology Literature Nowcasts (CBST), Chinese Science Abstracts(CSAC), Chinese Mechanics Abstracts and other abstracting/indexing databases. It is one of the Chinese Core Journals selected by Beijing University, Journal of Double-effect Matrix by GAPP, etc., and has also been titled China College Quality Periodical, Double Top 10 Periodical of Chongqing City, and CAJ-CD Standard Periodical.
