Instructions for Authors

Journal of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (JTAM) is devoted to all aspects of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and applied problems of structural mechanics, mechatronics, biomechanics and robotics. Both theoretical and experimental papers as well as survey papers can be proposed.

JTAM accepts full-text articles (max. 12 pages) as well as the short communications (max. 4 pages).

We accept articles in English only. Moreover, references cited in the article should be predominantly available in English (no more than 15% references in other languages are acceptable)

The author(s) declare that the paper:

• presents their own work which does not been infringe any third-party rights, especially authorship of any part of the article
• is an orginal contribution, not published before and not being under consideration for publication elsewhere.

All the co-authors of the paper should be announced within submission. No changes of the list of authors is accepted during reviewing and editorial process.

Papers are accepted for publication after the review process. Blind review model is applied, which means that the reviewers' names are kept confidential to the authors. Reviewer(s) declare that there is no interpersonal relation with the author(s) that would affect the opinion and recommendation of the article for publication in JTAM. The final decision on paper acceptance belongs to the Editorial Board.

Requirements for paper preparation

The submitted manuscript of JTAM paper should not exceed 12 pages (short communication: 4 pages) of standard format A4 (11-point type size, standard margins - 2,5 cm, single line spacing) including abstract, figures, tables and references. The paper should be sent as a pdf file.

Contents of the manuscripts should appear in the following order:

• Title of the paper
• Author’s full name, affiliation and e-mail
• Short abstract (maximum 100 words) and 3-5 key words (1 line)
• Article body
• References

The text should be divided into numbered sections. Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively withinin the manuscript. Equations (written using Microsoft Equation 4.0 or 5.0 or 6.0 or 7.0, not Microsoft Equation 3.0) should be numbered consecutively, separately in each section. References should be cited in the text by the last name(s) of author(s) and the publication year.

The list of References should contain no more than 25 items in alphabetical order, in the following format:

Titles of references orginally published not in English, should be translated into English and formulated as follows:

6. Huber M.T., 1904, Specific work of strain as a measure of material effort (in Polish), Czasopismo Techniczne, XXII, 3, 80-81

All the data should be reported in SI units.

Publication of accepted manuscripts

After acceptation the Editorial Board requires source files including LATEX or TEX or Word document file and the figures in graphical files.
The best preferred form of figures are files obtained by making use of editorial environments employing vector graphics and saved in the standard format of the given program:

• genertaed in CorelDraw (*.cdr), AutoCad and ArchiCad (*.dwg) and Adobe Illustrator (*.ai). We require original files saved in the standard format of the given program.
• genertaed by calculation software (e.g. Mathematica) -- we need files saved in *.eps or *.pdf formats.
• made in other programs based on vector graphics -- we ask for *.eps, *.wmf, *.svg, *.psfiles.

The scans, photos, bitmaps are strongly encouraged to be supplied with resolution of at least 300 dpi.

Publication of the accepted manuscript is subject to fee (€ 500 for a full-text paper and € 250 for a short communication). The papers are published online under the CC BY NC open access license.
