Aims and Scope
The International Journal on Smart Material and Mechatronics (IJSMM) is an international research journal, which publishes top-level work from all areas of Engineering Research and their application including Mechanical, Civil, Electrical, Computer Science and IT, Chemical, Electronics, Mathematics, Environmental, Education Geological etc. Researchers in all technology and engineering fields are encouraged to contribute articles based on recent research. Journal publishes research articles and reviews within the whole field of Engineering Research, and it will continue to provide information on the latest trends and developments in this ever-expanding subject.
Smart materials are designed materials that have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled fashion by external stimuli, such as stress, temperature, moisture, pH, electric or magnetic fields. Other keywords related to smart material are such as shape memory material (SMM) and shape memory technology (SMT)
Mechatronics is the synergistic combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronic control and systems thinking in the design of products and manufacturing processes. It relates to the design of systems, devices and products aimed at achieving an optimal balance between basic mechanical structure and its overall control. The purpose of this journal is to provide rapid publication of topical papers featuring practical developments in mechatronics. It will cover a wide range of application areas including consumer product design, instrumentation, manufacturing methods, computer integration and process and device control, and will attract a readership from across the industrial and academic research spectrum. Particular importance will be attached to aspects of innovation in mechatronics design philosophy which illustrate the benefits obtainable by an a priori integration of functionality with embedded microprocessor control. A major item will be the design of machines, devices and systems possessing a degree of computer based intelligence. The journal seeks to publish research progress in this field with an emphasis on the applied rather than the theoretical. It will also serve the dual role of bringing greater recognition to this important area of engineering.
Smart Material and Mechatronics publish the following types of papers:
• Regular Articles should describe original research of high quality in the field of Smart Materials and Mechatronics.
• Review Articles will generally be specially commissioned, however, suggestions for topics and authors are welcomed by the Editor-in-Chief.
•Technical Notes provide rapid publication of important new contributions.
Benefits to authors
We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs for all issues, a liberal copyright policy and much more.
