Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures

Thank you for visiting this web site and for your support to the Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures, LAJSS, a scientific journal financially supported by the Brazilian Research Funding Agency CNPq and by spontaneous donations.

Up to 2014, it had also the nominal support of the Argentinean Association of Computational Mechanics, Brazilian Association of Computational Mechanics, Chilean Society for Computational Mechanics and Mexican Association of Numerical Methods in Engineering and Applied Sciences. During 2015 and 2016 LAJSS was finacially supported by ABCM, The Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences.

LAJSS is a 100% free journal for readers and authors, with no hidden fees, being published close to 20 times a year.

LAJSS had in 2014 IMPACT FACTOR = 1.411 and in 2015 IMPACT FACTOR = 0.849LAJSS is indexed in the Web of Science, SCOPUS, DOAJ, EBSCO, SOCOLAR and SCIELO. 

LAJSS is a forum for publication and dissemination of original work related to basic and applied engineering sciences. Researchers all over the world are welcome to submit their papers covering theoretical, numerical and experimental topics in continuum and applied mechanics, in both their linear and non-linear aspects. Interest covers inorganic as well as organic solids and structures. Papers submitted to the journal undergo a peer reviewing procedure coordinate by the editorial board and covering areas like:

  • Vibration & Dynamics
  • Aerospace and Automotive Engineering
  • Biomechanics
  • Composite and Cellular Materials
  • Computational and Experimental Mechanics
  • Material Modelling
  • Microsystems and Machine Design
  • Multiscale phenomena
  • Nanomechanics and New Materials
  • Ocean and Offshore Engineering
  • Optimisation & Structural & Theoretical & Continuum Mechanics
  • Fluid-solid interaction

Papers with a more technological background and/or on the field of civil engineering are usually not accepted.
