Journal Metrics

Usage
  • 26 198Downloads 2023
    Springer measures the usage on the SpringerLink platform according to the COUNTER (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.
  • 44 Usage Factor 2022/2023
    The Springer Journal Usage Factor 2022/2023 was calculated as suggested by the COUNTER Code of Practice for Usage Factors. It is the median value of the number of downloads in 2022/2023 for all articles published online in that particular journal during the same time period. The Usage Factor calculation is based on COUNTER-compliant usage data on the SpringerLink platform. (Counting Online Usage of NeTworked Electronic Resources) standards.

Impact
  • 0.7 Impact Factor 2022
    Journal Impact Factors are published each summer by Thomson Reuters via Journal Citation Reports ®. Impact Factors and ranking data are presented for the preceding calendar year.
  • 0.71Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) 2023
    Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP) measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field. The impact of a single citation is given higher value in subject areas where citations are less likely, and vice versa.
  • Q3Quartile: Physics and Astronomy (miscellaneous) 2023
    The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.
  • 0.22 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) 2023
    SCImago Journal Rank (SJR) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
  • 24H-Index 2023
    A journal has an H index of h if it published h papers each of which has been cited in other journals at least h times. Calculations are based on Scopus.

SCOPE

Mechanics of Solids  is a peer-reviewed journal. It publishes articles in the general areas of the dynamics of particles and rigid bodies and the mechanics of deformable solids. The journal has a goal of being a comprehensive record of up-to-the-minute research results. The journal coverage is the vibration of discrete and continuous systems; stability and optimization of mechanical systems; automatic control theory; dynamics of multiple body systems; elasticity, viscoelasticity, and plasticity; mechanics of composite materials; theory of structures and structural stability; wave propagation and impact of solids; fracture mechanics; micromechanics of solids; mechanics of granular and geological materials; structure-fluid interaction; mechanical behavior of materials; gyroscopes and navigation systems; and nanomechanics. Most of the articles in the journal are theoretical and analytical. They present a blend of basic mechanics theory with an analysis of contemporary technological problems. Mechanics of Solids  publishes English translations of articles from Izvestiya RAN, Mekhanika Tverdogo Tela  and other source journals and original unsolicited articles in the English language. The source of each article is described at the article level on the title pages. The final decision about the publication in Mechanics of Solids  is made by its editorial board regardless of the source. The editorial and peer review policies are the same for all translated and original articles. The journal is interested in the global cooperation of scientists and has the aim of becoming an international publication. Researchers from around the globe are encouraged to submit their work in English.
