How to publish in this journal


The RCMA provides a premier venue for the latest scientific and technical developments in materials and their developments in the industrial world. Published since 1991, the journal has always focused on the materials and their evolution regarding to their potential applications. The main question has always been: what kind of materials for a given application? In this sense, the editorial board welcomes original papers that go from chemistry for the definition or the conception of new materials to structural mechanics to assess the lifetime of the structures made from these materials. The papers should highlight the physical mechanisms in the materials when loaded and the link between these mechanisms, the degradations and the mechanical properties. A special attention should be made on the characterization of materials. The RCMA welcomes original research papers, technical notes and review articles on various disciplines, including but not limited to: New materials; Structural mechanics; Chemical analysis; Lifetime assessment; Stress mechanism; Mechanical properties; Material degradation; Material characterization; Parameter identification; Numerical simulation.

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.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.
