Physical Mesomechanics

Fizicheskaya Mezomekhanika

ISSN PRINT: 1029-9599
ISSN ONLINE: 1990-5424


The journal is an international forum for the publication of theoretical and experimental studies and reviews related to physical mesomechanics and solidstate physics, mechanics, materials science, geodynamics, nondestructive testing, and to a large number of other fields where physical mesomechanics can be used. Papers dealing with processing, characterization, structure and physical properties, as well as computational aspects of the mesomechanics of heterogeneous media, fracture mesomechanics, physical mesomechanics of materials, mesomechanics applications for geodynamics and tectonics, mesomechanics of smart materials and materials for electronics, and nondestructive testing are suitable for publication.

Physical Mesomechanics is abstracted and/or indexed in:
Current Abstracts, EBSCO, Google Scholar, OCLC, SCImago, SCOPUS, Science Citation Index Expanded (SciSearch), Summon by ProQuest.

The copyright transfer agreement should be filled out using MS Word or hand-printed and signed by all authors (coauthors and copyright holders).

These agreements are contracts of adhesion.

A copyright transfer agreement enters into force if a manuscript is accepted for publication in English. If for any reason your article is rejected by the editorial board of a journal, the agreement loses its force. The decision on acceptance of a manuscript for publication is the exclusive right of the editorial board of the respective journal. By signing the agreement, the authors guarantee that they have familiarized themselves and agree with its conditions.

The editorial boards of journals do not accept manuscripts without copyright transfer agreements.
