Impact Score* 3.6
The journal mainly tackles studies in Solid mechanics, Mechanics, Mathematical analysis, Classical mechanics and Geometry. Solid mechanics research presented in the journal encompasses a variety of subjects, including Fluid dynamics, Finite element method, Constitutive equation and Nonlinear system. Acta Mechanica dives deep in exploring the relationship between the study of Fluid dynamics and Dynamical system.
In addition to Mechanics research, it aims to explore topics under Stress (mechanics) and Thermodynamics. The study on Mathematical analysis presented is investigated in conjunction with research in Isotropy. Classical mechanics research featured in Acta Mechanica incorporates concerns from various other topics such as Wave propagation and Compressibility.
The Boundary value problem study featured in it draws connections with the study of Vibration.
The most cited publications explore disciplines such as Solid mechanics, Mechanics, Classical mechanics, Mathematical analysis and Geometry. While the journal articles focused on Solid mechanics, they were also able to explore topics like Fluid dynamics, Boundary value problem, Vibration and Constitutive equation. In addition to Classical mechanics research, the published articles aim to explore topics under Timoshenko beam theory, Non-Newtonian fluid, Compressibility and Nonlinear system.
Acta Mechanica focuses largely on the fields of Solid mechanics, Mechanics, Mathematical analysis, Boundary value problem and Finite element method. Research in the field of Composite material was used to conduct the presented Solid mechanics study. Stiffness and Deformation (engineering) are some of the study areas of Composite material discussed.
The studies in Mechanics featured incorporate elements of Work (thermodynamics), Shell (structure), Equations of motion, Bending and Viscoelasticity. The journal facilitates discussions on Mathematical analysis that incorporate concepts from other fields like Isotropy, Plane (geometry), Displacement (vector) and Boundary (topology). The work on Finite element method addressed in Acta Mechanica expands to the thematically related Buckling.
A key indicator for each journal is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.
The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.
The top authors publishing in Acta Mechanica (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top authors publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top authors.
Only papers with recognized affiliations are considered
The top affiliations publishing in Acta Mechanica (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top affiliations publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top affiliations.
The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.
The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.
During the most recent 2021 edition, 12.40% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 13.27% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 10.62% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 12.83% of all publications and 63.27% were from other institutions.
A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal from year to year.
The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the journal in relation to all participants in a given year.
The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.
Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).
The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:
The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
