Purpose and Scope:

ASME Open Journal of Engineering is a multidisciplinary, open access start-up initiative to expand the current ASME Journal Program portfolio to offer original research across the broad spectrum of all ASME technical communities. The new title will provide authors with a high-quality, fully open access archival journal that features rapid and rigorous peer review and publication.

• High-impact, innovative articles that may not fit the scope of ASME’s traditional journals, for example, cross-cutting or multi-disciplinary research in new or emerging areas.
• Original findings on theoretical or applied topics related to mechanical engineering and allied disciplines.
• Development of new or improved engineering methods and solutions.
• A quality publication in compliance with funder mandates that require full open access.
• Multiple article types, including traditional and novel research papers, review papers, technical briefs, and more.
