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 with all the requirements concerning standard publications, except a volume that is limited to 4 pages.

We accept articles in English only. The text of JTAM paper should not exceed 12 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.

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

Contents of the manuscripts should appear in the following order:

Title of the paper
Author’s full name, affiliation and e-mail
Short absract (maximum 100 words) and 3-5 key words (1 line)
Article text (equations should be numbered separately in each section; each reference should be cited in the text by the last name(s) of author(s) and the publication year)
References (max. 25) in alphabetical order. See the following:

All the data should be reported in SI units.

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 fioles 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.
  • Starting from January 1, 2020, the Publisher of Journal of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics introduces a fee for published articles.
  • This applies only to papers submitted after this date and accepted by the Editorial Board for publication.
  • A payment of 500 EUR will be a condition for commencing the editorial procedure for upcoming articles.
