Scope Founded in 1985, Acta Mechanica Sinica is an international journal sponsored by the Chinese Society of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. It welcomes and records high-quality original papers in all aspects of mechanics and mechanical sciences from contributors throughout the world. The journal also serves as an effective tool for promoting scientific exchange between Chinese scientists living in China and those overseas. The journal aims to report recent developments in mechanics and other related fields of research. It covers all disciplines in the field of theoretical and applied mechanics -- including not only the classical subdivisions such as solid and fluid mechanics, but also the recently emerging areas such as biomechanics and nanomechanics. It explores analytical, computational and experimental progresses in all areas of mechanics. The journal also encourages research in interdisciplinary subjects, and serves as a bridge between mechanics and other branches of engineering and sciences. The journal publishes review articles, research papers, notes, experimental techniques, scientific events and other special topics of general interest.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of 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 It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
