About the Journal
Archive of Mechanical Engineering
is an international journal publishing works of wide significance,
originality and relevance in most branches of mechanical engineering.
The journal is peer-reviewed and is published both in electronic and
printed form. Archive of Mechanical Engineering publishes original
papers which have not been previously published in other journal, and
are not being prepared for publication elsewhere. The publisher will not
be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.
The journal accepts papers in English.
Submission of papers
The manuscripts must be written

Please note that Authors should upload the manuscript using Editorial
System as PDF file.
All authors of the manuscript are responsible for its content; they must
have agreed to its publication and have given the corresponding author
the authority to act on their behalf in all matters pertaining to
publication. The corresponding author is responsible for informing the
co-authors of the manuscript status throughout the submission, review,

Length and arrangement
Papers should not exceed in
length 25 standard typewritten pages (including tables and figures) with
a font size of 11 pt. Authors should consult a recent issue of the
journal for style if possible.
Articles should be organized into the following sections:
• List of keywords (separated by commas);
• Full Name(s) of Author(s), Affiliation(s), Personal e-mail address(es);
• Main text,
• Acknowledgments (if applicable),
We suggest the title should be as short as possible but still
informative. Affiliations should include department, university, city,
country and personal e-mail address(es). The corresponding author should
be identified – personal e-mail address of the corresponding author is
An abstract should accompany every article. It should be a brief summary
of significant results of the paper and give concise information about
the content of the core idea of the paper. It should be informative and
not only present the general scope of the paper, but also indicate the
main results and conclusions. An abstract should not exceed 200 words.
Please follow the general rules for writing the main text of the paper:
• use simple and declarative sentences, avoid long sentences, in which
the meaning may be lost by complicated construction;
• divide the main text into sections and subsections (if needed the
subsections may be divided into paragraphs);
• be concise, avoid idle words;
• make your argumentation complete; use commonly understood terms;
define all nonstandard symbols and abbreviations when you introduce them;
• explain all acronyms and abbreviations when they first appear in the
• use all units consistently throughout the article;
• be self-critical as you review your drafts.
The authors are advised to use the SI system of units.
You may use line diagrams and photographs to illustrate theses from your
text. The figures should be clear, easy to read and of good quality.
Styles and fonts should match those in the main body of the article. The
figures are preferred in a vector format (bitmap formats are acceptable,
but not recommended). Any presented figure or table should not exceed
the height of 190 mm and width of 120 mm. The figures should be inserted
to the text file.
Displayed equations should be numbered consecutively using Arabic
numbers in parentheses. It should be centered, leaving a small space
above and below to separate it from the surrounding text.
You should use tables only to improve conciseness or where the
information cannot be given satisfactorily in other ways. Tables should
be numbered serially and referred to in the text by number. Each table
should have an explanatory caption which should be as concise as
We encourage authors to restrict the use of footnotes. If necessary,
please make endnotes rather than footnotes. Information concerning
research grant support should appear in a separate Acknowledgements
section at the end of the paper, not in a footnote. Acknowledgements of
the assistance of colleagues or similar notes of appreciation should
also appear in the Acknowledgements section, not in footnotes.
References should be listed and numbered in the order that they appear
in the text. References in the main text should be cited by number in
square brackets (without authors names), for example: ... in  authors
presented ...; ... new investigations in this field can be found in .
..., and so on. References indicated by numerals in square brackets
should complete the paper in the following style:

 F. Author and A. Second. The title of the article. Journal's Title,
28(4):962-987, 2017. doi: 10.1000/abc12345 (where means: 28 - volume;

Archive of Mechanical Engineering is published in English. Make sure
that your manuscript is clearly and grammatically written. The content
should be understandable and should not cause any confusion to the
readers, including the reviewers. After accepting the manuscript for a
publication in the AME, we offer a free language check service, for
correcting small language mistakes.
Submission of Revised Articles
When revision of a manuscript is requested, authors are expected to
deliver the revised version of the manuscript as soon as possible. The
manuscript should be uploaded directly to the Editorial System as an
answer to the Editor's decision, and not as a new manuscript. If it is
the 1st revision, the authors need to return revised manuscript within
60 days; if it is the 2nd revision, the authors need to return revised
manuscript within 14 days. Additional time for resubmission must be
requested in advance. If the above mentioned deadlines are not met, the
manuscript may be treated as a new submission.
Outline of the Production
Process Once an article has been accepted for publication, the
manuscript is transferred into our production system to be
language-edited and formatted. Language/technical editors reserve the
privilege of editing manuscripts to conform with the stylistic
conventions of the journal. Once the article has been typeset, PDF
proofs are generated so that authors can approve all editing and layout.
Proofreading should be carried out once a final draft has been produced.
Since the proofreading stage is the last opportunity to correct the
article to be published, the authors are requested to make every effort
to check for errors in their proofs before the paper is posted online.
Authors may be asked to address remarks and queries from the language
and/or technical editors. Queries are written only to request necessary
information or clarification of an unclear passage. Please note that
language/technical editors do not query at every instance where a change
has been made. It is the author's responsibility to read the entire
text, tables, and figure legends, not just items queried. Major
alterations made will always be submitted to the authors for approval.
The corresponding author receives e-mail notification when a PDF is
available and should return the comments within 3 days of receipt.
Transfer of Copyright Agreement
Once the paper is accepted, the authors are assumed to have transferred
the copyright of the paper to the publisher. A properly completed three
documents: Open Access License, Authors contribution and Declaration
anti-ghostwriting policy, signed by the Corresponding Author on behalf
of all the authors, must be provided for each submitted manuscript as a
condition of publication. The forms can be downloaded from the journal’s
