Author Guidelines

Editorial Policy and General Information

The Journal of Computers, Mechanical and Management (JCMM) is committed to publishing original articles that explore the diverse landscape of Basic Sciences, all Engineering Disciplines, and Humanities and Management. JCMM seeks to publish high-quality papers that meet the following criteria:

  1. Describe Significant and Novel Findings: Papers submitted to JCMM should present original research that contributes significantly to its field. The findings should be novel and provide fresh insights, pushing the boundaries of existing knowledge.

  2. Advance Knowledge in a Diversity of Fields: JCMM embraces a wide range of scientific disciplines, including the application of computer science in Basic Sciences, the integration of mechanical elements in Engineering, and the emphasis on Management principles across various domains. Contributions can take the form of original articles, short communications, reviews, case reports, or letters to the editor.

Review Process

Manuscripts submitted to JCMM are evaluated based on their potential to present new insights into the investigated topics, encompassing the fields of Basic Sciences, Engineering Disciplines, and Humanities and Management. It is an expectation that all authors listed on a manuscript have consented to its submission. The corresponding author's agreement to the terms of submission is assumed upon receipt. Initially, manuscripts will be examined by the JCMM editorial office. Those considered lacking sufficient novelty or relevance for publication may be rejected without external evaluation. Manuscripts not adhering to the advised style described in our submission guidelines will be returned to the authors for correction.

Once a manuscript has been assigned to an Editor, the authors will be provided with a reference number. The assigned manuscripts will then be sent to 2-4 independent experts for scientific evaluation, ensuring an unbiased and rigorous assessment. This evaluation process generally takes an average of 1-3 weeks. Editors are prevented from participating in decisions about papers they have authored themselves or those written by family members or colleagues, or which relate to products or services in which the editor has a personal interest. Any such submission is subjected to all of JCMM's usual procedures, with peer review handled independently of the relevant editor and their research groups. The integrity of the review process is upheld through this meticulous approach, reinforcing JCMM's commitment to publishing research of the highest quality.


Authors who wish to include figures, tables, or text that have previously been published elsewhere must obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online formats. Evidence of such permission must be included when submitting manuscripts to JCMM. Failure to provide this evidence will result in the assumption that the material in question originates from the authors themselves. It is the responsibility of the authors to ensure that all necessary permissions are secured, and that they adhere to the legal and ethical standards relating to copyright and intellectual property rights. JCMM maintains a strict policy in upholding the integrity of intellectual property and expects all contributors to comply with these guidelines. Any disregard for these requirements may lead to the rejection of the submitted material or other appropriate actions, in accordance with the journal's editorial policies.


Every effort is made by the publisher and the editorial board to ensure that no inaccurate or misleading data or statements appear in the Journal of Computers, Mechanical and Management (JCMM). However, it is essential to clarify that the data and opinions presented in the articles herein are solely the responsibility of the respective authors. While JCMM strives to maintain the highest standards of accuracy and integrity, the publisher and the editorial board cannot accept liability for the consequences of any inaccurate or misleading data or statements, whether intentional or unintentional. Authors are expected to adhere to rigorous academic standards and ethical guidelines, and JCMM reserves the right to take appropriate action in the event of any discrepancies or misconduct. The views and opinions expressed in the articles do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of JCMM, its publisher, or the editorial board, and should not be attributed to them.

  • Funding Source: Clearly identify the name of the funding organization or grant number.
  • Role of Funding Source: Describe the role of the funding body in the design of the study, collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, writing of the report, and decision to submit the article for publication.
  • Acknowledgment: Include proper acknowledgment of the funding source in the manuscript.
  • If no funding is taken then mention as: "This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors." and if funding is taken. 

Declaration of Competing Interest

Authors must disclose all relationships or interests that could influence or bias the work. Examples of potential conflicts of interest include employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, patents, or paid expert testimony.

  • Complete Disclosure: Authors must provide a clear and complete record of any potential conflict of interest, whether it exists or not.
  • If there is no conflict of interest, a statement to that effect should be included in the manuscript like: "The authors declare that they have no known competing financial interests or personal relationships that could have appeared to influence the work reported in this paper."

Declaration of Generative AI in Scientific Writing

The following guidance pertains specifically to the writing process and does not encompass the application of AI tools for data analysis or research insights. Authors may employ generative AI and AI-assisted technologies to enhance the readability and linguistic quality of their manuscripts. However, such utilization must be guided by human oversight and control. The resulting text should be carefully reviewed and edited by the authors to avoid any potential inaccuracies, incompleteness, or biases that AI may inadvertently introduce. Generative AI and AI-assisted technologies are not to be designated as authors, co-authors, or cited as authors in the manuscript. Authorship carries responsibilities and duties that can only be attributed to human individuals. Authors are required to disclose the usage of AI and AI-assisted technologies in their manuscript's writing process. This disclosure should be included in the manuscript following the instructions provided by JCMM through the Open Journal Systems (OJS). A statement regarding this utilization will be included in the published work. It must be noted that the authors are ultimately accountable for the content of the work and must ensure that the application of AI aligns with the ethical standards and integrity of scientific writing as upheld by JCMM.
