Best Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Journals

The ranking of leading journals for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering was created by Research.com, one of the leading sites for Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering research providing trusted information on scientific output since 2014.

The spot on the list is based on a unique bibliometric score devised by Research.com which is computed by means of the approximated discipline index (D-index) and the number of top scientists who have endorsed the journal during the previous five years. Show more

Please that this year's edition is based on metric gathered for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021.

The list contains Impact Score data collected on 06-12-2021.

The process for scoring journals involved examining as much as 1,742 journals which were chosen after careful inspection and scrupulous examination of over 17,210 scientific documents published during the last five years by 1,328 leading and well-renowned researchers in the area of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering.

More information on the methodology for establishing the score can be found on our our methodology page.
