Preface

We are honored to announce the publication of the journal "Mechanical Engineering Journal", which is an international journal of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). The journal is one of four new JSME journals published under the title "Bulletin of JSME", which are "Mechanical Engineering Reviews", "Mechanical Engineering Journal", "Transactions of the JSME (in Japanese)", and "Mechanical Engineering Letters".

The JSME had been publishing international journals such as Bulletin of the JSME (1958-1986) and JSME International Journal (1987-2006) which continuous volume numbers. Since 2006, 11 international journals have been published as free accessible e-journals using the system J-Stage. These journals cover several specialist areas, have been edited and managed by divisions of the JSME, and have been supplying valuable technical information on the research and development of mechanical engineering science and technology to Japan, the Asia-Pacific region, and worldwide.

As a result of recent trends in research and development in the field of mechanical engineering, it has become important to provide the most recent information and technology not only on leading-edge research in specialist areas but also on research and development to solve cross-cutting issues. The JSME has integrated its international journals to produce "Mechanical Engineering Journal" with the exception of four international journals, "Journal of Fluid Science and Technology", "Journal of Thermal Science and Technology", "Journal of Biomechanical Science and Engineering", and "Journal of Advanced Mechanical Design, Systems, and Manufacturing".

Mechanical Engineering Journal (MEJ) is an Open Access, peer-reviewed journal involved in the master journal list of WoS that publishes significant and novel contributions in all fields of mechanical engineering. The journal’s primary aim is to facilitate the emergence of new concepts and important innovations that advance worldwide progress in mechanical engineering.

MEJ publishes Research Papers in 12 broad categories: Solid Mechanics and Materials Engineering; Fluids Engineering; Thermal, Engine and Power Engineering; Dynamics & Control, Robotics & Mechatronics; Micro/Nano Science and Technology; Computational Mechanics; Design, Systems, and Manufacturing; Bio, Medical, Sports and Human Engineering; Environmental and Process Engineering, Safety; Transportation and Logistics; Space Engineering; and Law, History, Education and Management Engineering. The journal especially welcomes articles that bridge the diverse topics in the field.

MEJ articles are published as Advanced Online Publications and are compiled into bimonthly issues, all of which are freely available from the J-STAGE platform. The journal’s broad readership includes researchers and engineers from around the world.

Railway Technology
-9th International Symposium on Speed-up and Sustainable Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems (STECH2021)-

Vol.10, No.1 (February 15, 2023)
Submission Deadline: July 31, 2022
Note: Please select a Section/Category "Railway Technology -STECH2021- (MEJ:TL)" on Editorial Manager.

STECH is the International Conference on Speed-up and Sustainable Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems sponsored by JSME (Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers). Followed by the success of the previous STECH symposiums held in Yokohama (Japan, 1993), Birmingham (UK, 1996), Tokyo (Japan, 2003), Chengdu (China, 2006), Niigata (Japan, 2009), Seoul (Korea, 2012), Chiba (Japan, 2015), Barcelona (Spain, 2018), the 9th international Symposium on Speed-up and Sustainable Technology for Railway and Maglev Systems (STECH2021) will be held as a hybrid (real and virtual) conference during November 23-25, 2021. It is of considerable importance to distribute latest railway technology for researches all over the world. In view of this, it has been decided to publish the special issue of STECH2021 in MEJ (Mechanical Engineering Journal) that is the international scientific journal of JSME. The authors of STECH2021 short papers are encouraged to submit the full paper to this special issue.

Recent Advances in Materials and Processing 2022

Vol.10, No.4 (August 15, 2023)
Submission Deadline: February 1, 2023
Note: Please select a Section/Category "Recent Advances in Materials and Processing 2022 (MEJ:SMM)" on Editorial Manager.

Service environment of materials is getting severer monotonously. In order to keep human society comfortable, conventional materials are replaced by higher performance materials or suitable materials are newly developed. The material processing technology is also growing rapidly. The conventional materials with the new processing technology can extend the allowable range of services and can find new service fields. On the other hand, sustainable procurement (or green procurement), as a public policy, must be considered seriously to select materials in industrial products. From these backgrounds, the JSME International Conference on Materials and Processing 2022 (ICM&P 2022) will be held from November 6 to 10, 2022, at Japan Jichikaikan Hall, Naha, Okinawa, Japan as an international activity of the Materials and Processing (M&P) Division, JSME. This conference will be meaningful for many researchers and scientists to exchange their knowledge and experience with each other and to establish relationships for collaboration. The special issue of Mechanical Engineering Journal, entitled "Recent Advances in Materials and Processing", will welcome to be submitted by the authors who presented research works at the above conference. The submitted manuscript will be peer-reviewed again in accordance with the editorial policy of JSME.

Nuclear Energy the Future Zero Carbon Power

Vol.10, No.4 (August 15, 2023)
Submission Deadline: December 23, 2022
Note: Please select a Section/Category "Nuclear Energy the Future Zero Carbon Power 2022 (MEJ:TEP)" on Editorial Manager.

The 29th International Conference on Nuclear Engineering (ICONE29) is held in Shenzhen, China and virtual on August 8 – 12, 2022, under the sponsorships of JSME (Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers), ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), and CNS (Chinese Nuclear Society). With the conference theme “Nuclear Energy the Future Zero Carbon Powe”, numbers of presentations and vigorous discussions were made by the experts from the world on various topics that include; plant operation and engineering, advanced reactors and small modular reactors, nuclear fuels and fuel cycle, codes and standards, thermal hydraulics and computational fluid dynamics, decommissioning, beyond design basis and nuclear safety, risk informed management and regulation, and verification and validation. It is of significant importance for JSME to disseminate to and share with the global community the latest researches and discussions on the importance of nuclear energy and nuclear safety issues. For these purposes, it has been planned to issue a special issue of MEJ (Mechanical Engineering Journal) featuring ICONE29. The authors of ICONE29 papers are encouraged to submit their papers, augmented and/or revised, to this special issue.
