The Journal of Manufacturing Science and Engineering serves as a vehicle for the rapid dissemination of original theoretical and applied research results of permanent interest in all branches of manufacturing. The majority of the papers published are peer-reviewed full-length articles of considerable depth. The Journal also publishes technical briefs, design innovation papers, reviews, discussions of published papers with rebuttal, book reviews, and editorials.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to: manufacturing process and equipment development, modeling and simulation at different scales such as material removal, abrasive processes, forming, casting, polymer processing, EDM, ECM, laser processing, solid-free-form fabrication, rapid prototyping, nano/micro/meso-scale manufacturing, joining, medical/biomedical device manufacturing and others; desktop manufacturing; tooling and fixturing; metrology, inspection and quality control; CAD/CAM; sensors for manufacturing processes and machines; computer control of processes and machines; precision engineering; manufacturing automation; assembly operations and robotics; material handling; production systems; design for manufacturing and assembly; life cycle analysis; textile production.
The Editorial Board consists of a team of international experts who provide expertise and conduct the peer-review process for the different topical areas covered by the Journal.
