Founded in 1980 by CHIEN Wei-zang, a celebrated Chinese scientist in mechanics and mathematics, Applied Mathematics and Mechanics 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. Facing the new round of scientific and technological revolution and the obvious trend such as intellectualization, new energy, ecological green. The journal pays more attention to the mathematical basis theory of AI, mechanics plus information network, new energy, new materials, life science, ecological science, medicine and other cross fields. We are making due contributions to the development of new production capacity and promoting the development of new talents.

6 Network first

In the working process of the editorial department, the manuscript from adoption to publication must undergo the stages of finalisation, typesetting and whole compilation. Employment finalization refers to the manuscript that has been determined and approved for publication through peer review and final examination by the editor-in-chief. After the employment of the final version, typesetting and finalization refers to the manuscripts that have been typeset according to the specific format of the Journal (including the network presentation format).The publication year, volume, period and page number can be uncertain temporarily. 

The final stage of the whole compilation means that the year, volume, period and page number of the manuscripts in the whole issue have been determined. The contents of the first online accepted manuscript must conform to the relevant regulations of the publication management regulations and the regulations on periodical publication management. The academic research results should be innovative, scientific and advanced and meet the recruitment requirements of the editorial department for publication. There is no academic misconduct and other violations. The contents of the manuscripts should basically conform to the technical standards of the country for editing and publishing books and periodicals. 

Pay attention to the correct use and unified standardization of language, symbols, numbers, foreign letters, legal units of measurement and map marking, etc. In order to ensure the seriousness of the online launch of the employment finalization, once the employment finalization is published, the title, author, organization name and academic content of the paper shall not be modified, and only a few words can be modified based on the editing specification.

7 Confirmation of publication

The editorial department of paper journal has signed a contract with China Academic Journal (CD-ROM version) electronic magazine Co., Ltd. To establish an online version consistent with the content of the paper journal on the publishing and communication platform of China Academic Journal (network version), and publish the recruitment, typesetting and compilation of the paper in the form of single article or whole issue before printing and publishing.

Since Chinese Academic Journal (Network Edition) is a continuous network publication approved by the National Radio and Television Administration (ISSN 2096-4188, CN 11-6037/z), the first online paper on the network edition of the signed journals is regarded as official publication.
