Author Guidelines

How to submit a paper to AMME - user guide

We have created a step-by-step guide to help you through the process of submitting your paper. The authors can also use our step-by-step guides to submitting a revised manuscript.

User Guide

Article types

Full-length papers, containing original research work and review papers on all topics within the scope of Advances in Mechanical and Materials Engineering are welcomed.

The content of the article

The paper should be prepared in the following order:

  • Full author name (Name and Surname, not initials)
  • Title (avoid abbreviations and formulae where possible)
  • Affiliation should be placed in footnotes (full institutional mailing address and e-mail); we recommended providing the ORCID iD of each coauthor
  • Abstract
  • Keywords
  • The main text (Introduction, Material and methods, Results and discussion, and Conclusions)
  • Acknowledgements
  • References


The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free. A total of about 100-150 words is recommended. The abstract should contain all the essential information about the paper: the aim of the work, research methodology, results and main conclusions. The abstract should not contain any undefined abbreviations or references.

Preparation of Figures

All figures must be numbered in the order in which they appear in the manuscript (e.g. Fig. 1, Fig. 2). In multi-part figures, each part should be labelled (e.g. Fig. 1a, Fig. 1b). All drawings, graphs and tables should be implemented directly within the body of the text.

There is no charge for colour figures.


Tables should be prepared using the MS Word table tool. Tables should provide new information, not duplicate text, and should be cited in numerical order in the text. Tables should be numbered consecutively according to the order in which they are mentioned in the text. Table captions should always be positioned above the tables.


If you are using Word, please use either the Microsoft Equation Editor or the MathType add-on. Equations should be editable by the editorial office and not appear in a picture format.

Units of Measurement

SI Units (International System of Units) should be used.

List of references

Crediting sources and formatting references according to the style of the American Psychological Association (APA). For APA the reference list is arranged in alphabetical order of authors' surnames. The references must be listed in alphabetical order by the names of the authors, i.e. in the usual A-Z order of the English alphabet.

The general formats are:

Large Language Models in scientific writing

Large Language Models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT and generative artificial intelligence (AI) as productivity tools can help authors in preparing their article for submission; to generate initial ideas for a structure or to improve readability and language. However, authors should be aware of the imperfections and limitations of AI tools in the replication of human creative and critical thinking. The authors should clearly indicate the use of LLMs in the manuscript, preferably in the Methods or Acknowledgement sections. Authors are also obliged to ensure that there is no potential for plagiarism where the LLM may have reproduced substantial text from other sources.

For further information please see Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE)’s position statement on Authorship and AI tools.


Plagiarism prevention with CrossCheck

All submissions are checked for plagiarism using the Crossref Similarity Check (powered by iThenticate) software. The editorial board undertake the comprehensive manuscripts screening, aiming to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard, quality peer-review process. If plagiarism is detected during the peer review process, the manuscript may be rejected.
