The Uncertainties in Engineering Mechanics Journal
Aims & Scope of Resonance Publications’ e-journal:
Uncertainties in Engineering Mechanics is an archival journal devoted to documenting the efforts of the academic and the commercial communities to model and understand uncertainties in the analysis and design of engineered systems. The Journal will become an archival source of information and ideas for those who must deal with uncertainties in practice.
The scope of the Journal includes uncertainties in civil and mechanical engineering, engineering science, biomechanics, aerospace, ocean and space engineering. Implicitly included here are the computational issues that arise in the solution of such problems. Engineering mechanics is a broad field of study that is increasingly cross-disciplinary. The needs of society are becoming more complex, resulting in greater challenges for the engineering researcher and practitioner. Increased complexity parallels increased uncertainties about the system and its operating environment. Uncertainties must be quantified and must become an integral part of the engineering process.
As an e-journal of archival quality, all published papers will be of scholarly and professional quality. To ensure this standard, all manuscripts will be refereed by acknowledged experts and revised to a very high standard. Authors can place a vast repository of information, such as simulations, videos, other graphics and data sets, as a resource to the interested reader. Controversy and disagreement will be encouraged, but such innovative manuscripts must have well developed ideas with strong arguments that will convince the reader that they are potentially realistic and viable, both financially and technically.
Letters to the Editor will be encouraged and those published will be held to the same high standards as archival papers. Such letters should supplement a paper by bringing additional information to the reader, either in terms of support, or, in opposition to the thesis of the paper. Occasional review papers, tutorials, and interviews will also be solicited and published.
The Journal will have a Managing Editor and an Editorial Board. All communications will be via e-mail using attachments. Access to the published papers will be free to the reader, and include advertiser support. Copyright information and forms are provided elsewhere.
