The Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures, LAJSS, is a journal from the Brazilian Society of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering and it is financially supported by the Brazilian Research Funding Agency CNPq.
Up to 2014, LAJSS had the nominal support of the Argentinean Association of Computational Mechanics, Brazilian Association of Computational Mechanics, Chilean Society for Computational Mechanics and Mexican Association of Numerical Methods in Engineering and Applied Sciences.
LAJSS is a 100% free journal for readers and authors, with no hidden fees, being published at least every month.
As for 2013, LAJSS has IMPACT FACTOR = 1.254.
LAJSS is indexed in the Web of Science, SCOPUS, DOAJ, EBSCO, SOCOLAR and SCIELO.
In Lecture & Historical Notes you will be able to download relevant educational material for teaching and research as well as some seminal articles published decades ago. There you will also find a bit of the history of this journal.
The Latin American Journal of Solids and Structures is a forum for publication and dissemination of original work related to basic and applied engineering sciences. Researchers all over the world are welcome to submit their papers covering theoretical, numerical and experimental topics in continuum and applied mechanics, in both their linear and non-linear aspects. Interest covers inorganic as well as organic solids and structures. Papers with a more technological background are usually not accepted.
In order to accomplish a high standard, papers submitted to the journal undergo a peer reviewing procedure coordinate by the editorial board and covering areas like:
