Welcome to the Manuscript Management System (MMS)
of Mechanics & Industry

In order to register your new submission, you need to enter your author identifier. This is a unique and confidential number that is attributed to you upon your first submission to Mechanics & Industry. If you have submitted a paper to Mechanics & Industry before, you already have an author identifier. If you publish regularly with us, it is a good idea to note your author number for future reference.

If you are a new Mechanics & Industry author, you will be asked to fill out a registration form and an identifier will be attributed to you.

If you have forgotten your author identifier, click on New submission and follow the links for retrieving your number. You will be asked to enter your e-mail address and your identifier will be mailed to the given address if the MMS finds a correspondence between the e-mail address you entered and a Mechanics & Industry author.

If you have recently changed your e-mail address, do NOT fill out a new registration form, but instead contact the Editorial Office at and your author identifier will be communicated to you.

Important Notice

Dear Author,

EDP Sciences is pleased to announce that Mechanics & Industry publishes all articles open access.

Authors should pay an Article Processing Charge (amount in 2021: 1100 €), only if (and after) their manuscript has been accepted, please see the price list.

Authors also benefit from the transition to full open access. The journal publishes articles under a CC-BY license, enabling authors to retain copyright and be fully compliant with any open access requirements of funding organisations.

Corresponding authors from institutions which are part of the French National Open Access Agreement are able to publish in Mechanics & Industry with no article processing charges (APCs).

Similar agreements are already in place with German academic institutions and eligible Chinese Academy of Sciences institutes, authors can get 20 percent discounted APC price, find details here.

The French Association of Mechanics (AFM) and EDP Sciences will continue their efforts to secure funding for APCs via such agreements.
