Open Access Classical mechanics Journals

A list of Open Access Classical mechanics journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Classical mechanics is sub-field of mechanics, which is concerned with the set of physical laws describing the motion of bodies under the action of a system of forces

Open Access journals publish papers that are free to the reader to download. OA papers have undergone peer review and are not more or less stringent than papers in closed journals — the main difference is in the business model.

This list of Classical mechanics OA journals will hopefully make it easier for you to have a better idea regarding where your want to publish your Classical mechanics manuscript.
We have thousands of high-impact factor Classical mechanics journals in our list.We've made this extensive list of open access Classical mechanics journals so you can get a better overview of all the journals where you can publish open access.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Classical mechanics venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Classical mechanics journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access refers to free access to information and unrestricted use of electronic resources for everyone. Any kind of digital content can be open access, from texts and data to software, audio, and video.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
Relevance is used to quantify the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, “Brain Stimulation” has a relevance of “24” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it is somewhat related to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations show how often articles from a journal have been referenced in other works. We get this data from OpenAlex.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
To search for more open journal lists, look on
How can I publish my paper on
Our focus at is to disseminate existing open access research papers. For this reason, we do not offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
Authors usually have to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review, publishing, and dissemination of published papers in a given journal.
What are the different Open Access types?
Although there are Gold, Green, Hybrid, Bronze, Diamond, and Black Open Access licenses, here are the most common ones: Full Gold Open Access: article is freely and permanently accessible for everyone, immediately after publication. Hybrid Open Access: refers to a publishing model in which subscription-based journals allow authors to make individual articles gold open access immediately on payment of an article publication charge. Green Open Access: refers to the possibility to make subscription-based journal articles open access by uploading the peer-reviewed and accepted author manuscript to an institutional repository (such as DiVA)
