Chinese Journal of Mechanical Engineering (CJME) is an academic journal supervised by China Association for Science and Technology(CAST) and sponsored by Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society(CMES). CJME is published bimonthly in both print and electronic forms. It is indexed and abstracted by Science Citation Index Expanded (SciSearch®), Journal Citation Reports/Science Edition, SCOPUS, INSPEC, Zentralblatt Math, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), Google Scholar, CSA, Chinese Science Citation Database, Earthquake Engineering Abstracts, EI-Compendex, OCLC, SCImago, Summon by ProQuest.
The mission of CJME is to serve researchers through prompt publication of significant advances in the branch of mechanical engineering, to encourage communication of high quality, innovative research results at mechanical engineering and related disciplines, and it is aimed to become an international academic journal of mechanical engineering.

The journal is awarded the title of Excellent Academic Journal with Great International Influence. It is supported by Special Grant for Key Academic Journals of National Natural Science Foundation of China. It is also supported by the grant from CAST for Journal International Promotion Program as well.

6 regional associate editors come from Italy, UK, USA, Japan, Canada, Australia. 159 international famous scholars make up the editorial board of CJME. More than 1400 reviewers come from all around the world. The editorial team, peer-review and the sources of contributions are internationalized to some extent. Its international influence in the field of mechanical engineering has further expanded.

Now, once the contribution is accepted by CJME, it will be immediately published online first at the website of Editorial Office (, CNKI(National Knowledge Infrastructure, China) and SpringerLink platform. There are a few months ahead of print publication, which is warmly welcomed by authors. Meanwhile, authors have the choice of publishing with or without open access.

Thanks to the authors’ trust and reviewers’ support, there is a great development of CJME in recent years. According to the 2014 Journal Citation Reports Science Edition(Thomson Reuters, 2015), its Impact Factor is 0.598, which has been the highest value for the journal since it was included by SCI in 2008. Most importantly, CJME leaps into the rank of Q3 among the international SCI-covered mechanical engineering journals. Now, more and more international experts and scholars pay attention to the development of CJME. The incoming contributions of CJME are now increasing year by year. Most of the papers published on CJME are affiliated to projects aided by the funds at national levels. The authors and readers of CJME spread all over the world.
