Aims and scope

International scientific journal "Materials Physics and Mechanics" is published by Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University in collaboration with Institute of Problems of Mechanical Engineering of the Russian Academy of Sciences in both hard copy and electronic versions.

Publication languages:
- English
- Russian
with added English article titles, information about the authors, abstracts, keywords, reference lists.

Journal Indexing:

  • Scopus and Web of Science
  • Russian Science Citation Index (RSCI) eLibrary.ru
  • the List of Russian peer-reviewed scientific journals in which the main scientific results of doctoral dissertations should be published (List of State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles)

The target audience is Russian- and English-speaking readers. Readers from different countries could:
- find an article by its English elements;
- read the text of the article in their native language, using machine translation.

Peer review is single-blind, performed by third-party reviewers from a group of specialists in the field of peer-reviewing materials. The editorial board may reject articles submitted with extreme violations of the rules of the journal, or articles that do not correspond to the topics of the journal, or articles that do not correspond to the capabilities of the journal for its peer review.

The journals do not charge authors for the preparation, reviewing, publishing and posting of articles in the public domain.

Thematic areas covered in the journal:

  • Mechanics of composite and nanostructured materials.
  • Physics of strength and plasticity of composite and nanostructured materials.
  • Mechanics of deformation and fracture processes in conventional materials (solids).
  • Physics of strength and plasticity of conventional materials (solids).
  • Physics and mechanics of defects in composite, nanostructured, and conventional materials.
  • Mechanics and physics of materials in coupled fields.

ll articles have gold open access status. Articles are licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC 4.0).

Digital Preservation of articles is provided by:

  • the journal’s website,
  • the Scientific Electronic Library. Russia
  • the Electronic Library of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, Russian Federation.

The journal is registered with the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (certificate EL No. 77 - 69287 dated 06.04.2017). The journal releases 7 issues per year.
