The journal Mechanics of Solids publishes articles in the general areas of dynamics of particles and rigid bodies and the mechanics of deformable solids. At approximately a thousand pages a year, the journal is a comprehensive record of up-to-the-minute research results. Coverage includes Vibration of discrete and continuous systems; Stability and optimization of mechanical systems; Automatic control theory; Dynamics of multiple body systems; Elasticity, viscoelasticity and plasticity; Mechanics of composite materials; Theory of structures and structural stability; Wave propagation and impact of solids; Fracture mechanics; Micromechanics of solids; Mechanics of granular and geological materials; Structure–fluid interaction; Mechanical behavior of materials; Gyroscopes and navigation systems; and Nanomechanics.

Articles in the journal are primarily theoretical and analytical in nature and present a satisfying blend of basic mechanics theory with analysis of contemporary technological problems.


Mechanics of Solids is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes 53 reviewers, both internal and external (24%), from 7 countries (Germany, Greece, India, Italy, United States, France, Russia). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 90 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 300 days.  The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
