Impact Score* 3.4
Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science tackles a plethora of topics, such as Mechanics, Optics, Turbulence, Flow (mathematics) and Flow visualization. Blade geometry and Computational fluid dynamics are all disciplines of Mechanics that connect with topics in Stroke (engine), Compression (physics) and Shape optimization. The journal explores topics in Optics which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Particle image velocimetry and Internal flow.
Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science explores themes in Turbulence like Turbulence kinetic energy, Reynolds stress and Mean flow and links them with other fields of study like Transverse plane. In the journal, Pressure drop and Wake are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Turbulence kinetic energy research. Topics in Reynolds stress explored in it were investigated in conjunction with research in Classical mechanics, Turbulence modeling and K-omega turbulence model, K-epsilon turbulence model.
Some problems in Flow (mathematics) that were presented in it overlapped with concepts under Turbomachinery, Impeller, Secondary flow and Vortex shedding. The journal facilitates discussions on Vortex shedding that incorporate concepts from other fields like Large eddy simulation, Potential flow around a circular cylinder, Supercritical flow and Strouhal number. Flow visualization research presented in Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science encompasses a variety of subjects, including Vortex and Reynolds number.
Mechanics, Optics, Turbulence, Flow (mathematics) and Flow visualization are the main subjects of interest in the published papers. The Particle image velocimetry, Impeller and Blade geometry studies presented in the most cited articles fall under the field of Mechanics, but they also have connections to other fields such as Spark-ignition engine and Shape optimization. The Turbulence studies presented in the journal papers encompass related topics like Turbulence kinetic energy, Reynolds stress and Mean flow and also examine its connection to subjects such as Transverse plane.
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 Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science (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 Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part C: Journal of Mechanical Engineering Science (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 2005 edition, 0.00% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 100.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 0.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 0.00% of all publications and 0.00% 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.
