Moscow University Mechanics Bulletin

ISSN: 0027-1330 (Print) 1934-8452 (Online)


Moscow University Mechanics Bulletin publishes articles covering all areas of mechanics, from continuum mechanics to rigid body dynamics, vibrations, wave propagation and random processes, with an emphasis on analytical and approximate analytical approaches rather than experimental and numerical methods. Major topics covered include: Classical mechanics; Elasticity and plasticity; Stability; Mechanics of deformable solids; Mechanics of composite materials; Vibrations; Wave propagation;

Random processes in mechanics; Perturbation theory; Statistical mechanics; Fluid and gas mechanics; Hydrodynamics; Aeromechanics; and more.

Articles originate not only from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of Lomonosov Moscow State University, but also from the university's renowned Institute of Mechanics and various Russian Academy of Sciences institutes in the Moscow area.


Moscow University Mechanics Bulletin is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 200 reviewers, both internal and external (80%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 90 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 30 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
