Journal Uniqueness and Mission

Mechanical Engineering for Society and Industry (MESI) is a peer-reviewed and open-access journal dedicated to academia, society, and industry to discuss complex issues in mechanical engineering. As it is known, mechanical engineering is a branch of engineering science that combines the principles of physics and engineering mathematics with materials science to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems (mechanics, energy, materials, manufacturing) in solving complex engineering problems. Therefore, this journal accommodates all research documentation and reports on technology applications in society and industry from various technology readiness levels (TRL). However, in accordance with our publishing mission, we prioritize research that contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) program.

Learn more about Technology Readiness Level (TRL) on the NASA website. We hope this journal can be a source of new insights and inspiration for further research. 

Journal Achievement

update: June 18, 2023

The issues and published articles
Until the end of May 2023, MESI has published 5 issues (see: archives) with 31 articles consisting of 25 research and review articles and 6 editorial articles. We consistently balance the quantity and quality of articles to maintain the trust of the academic community, both those who have an interest in submitting articles and those who read articles in our journal. Our editors also promote ethical communication with authors and reviewers to ensure that each accepted paper has a scientific contribution to international audiences or at least practical benefits to industry and society.

The authors
Since this journal was launched in early 2021, we have received a good reception from international authors. Our editors professionally promote MESI to their colleagues thereby attracting international interest. Our journal policy that encourages international collaboration enhances relations between researchers to share research experiences and improves the quality of articles. Up to Volume 3 Number 1 (2023), author diversity of our journal includes:

Asia : Indonesia, Malaysia, China, India, Pakistan, and Qatar
Africa : Nigeria, Tanzania, and Libya
Europe : UK, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, and Turkey
America : US, Brazil, and Cuba
Australia & Oceania : Australia

Authors' testimonials
We are very concerned about serving authors during the editorial process by upholding publication ethics. Implementing continuous quality assurance in publishing is one of our missions. Our editorial process is supervised and audited twice a year by our institution. The audit parameters include aspects of publishing management, article contributions, timeliness of publication, and adherence to publishing policies. We also conducted an author satisfaction survey to receive valuable feedback from them. As a form of transparency and accountability, we display the results of the author satisfaction survey and author comments in this link.
