Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology (JMST) is an official monthly International transaction of the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers (KSME). The current journal name was adopted in 2005. The first issue of the journal appeared in 1987, two times a year until 1992 under the name of KSME Journal. Then, it was published quarterly from 1993 to 1996, and bimonthly from 1997 to 1998, and monthly since 1999. From 1997 to 2004, the journal name was KSME International Journal (ISSN 1226-4865). In 1994, the journal was indexed as Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) and also in SCOPUS, INSPEC, Google Scholar, CNKI, Current Contents/Engineering, EBSCO Academic Search, EI Compendex, Expanded Academic, Gale, etc.
The aim of the Journal of Mechanical Science and Technology is to provide an international forum for the publication and dissemination of original work that contributes to the understanding of the main and related disciplines of mechanical engineering, either empirical or theoretical. The Journal covers the whole spectrum of mechanical engineering, which includes, but is not limited to, Dynamics, Vibration and Sound Engineering, Materials and Technology, Fluids Engineering, Solid Mechanics and Design, Micro/Nano Engineering and Technology, Production Engineering, Robotics and Control, Thermal and Power Engineering and Bio Engineering.
Manuscripts may fall into several categories including full articles, solicited reviews or commentary, and unsolicited reviews or commentary related to the core of mechanical engineering. It is also proposed to maintain an international diary of forthcoming events. Prospective guest editors for publishing the special issue should contact the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal.
