Acta Mechanica et Automatica

The Journal of Bialystok Technical University

Acta Mechanica et Automatica (AMA) is a journal publishing original research articles across the mechanics, automatics and robotics problems.

An AMA article should report new and original results that are of high scientific value, and make a substantial advance within a subfield of mechanics, automatics or robotics. The impact of the research should be significant enough that scientists outside the immediate field would be interested in the work. Authors of technically correct work that is only likely to be of some interest to a few experts in the field will, in general, be advised to seek publication in a more specialized journal.

Articles in AMA should have an abstract, introduction and conclusion that highlights, and makes accessible, the main results and their significance to a broad, non-specialist readership. The main body of the article should not however compromise on the scientific rigour and detail demanded by an international mechanics research journal, and there should be sufficient technical and background information to enable peers to corroborate results and follow the details of the work described. It is expected that an article will be well read and highly cited, and make a substantial contribution to the subject area.

The Acta Mechanica et Automatica referee report form and accompanying notes below outline the main areas and criteria we ask referees to consider in assessing whether an article meets the high standards of the journal.
I take this opportunity to thank all of all our referees for their vital contribution to the ongoing development and success of the journal.
