|Journal of Mechanics of Materials and Structures|
Abbreviated title (ISO 4)
|J. Mech. Mater. Struct.|
|Edited by||Charles R. Steele (Emiritus), Davide Bigoni, Iwona Jasiuk, Yasuhide Shindo|
The journal was established in 2006 after 21 of the 23 members of the editorial board of the International Journal of Solids and Structures resigned in protest of Elsevier's "pressure for increased profits out of the limited institutional resources." In their founding issue, the editors of JoMMS indicated several desires for the publication, including, "a low subscription price that will not grow faster than the number of pages and indeed may drop as the subscriber base expands."
