Open Access Mechanical engineering Journals

A list of Open Access Mechanical engineering journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Mechanical engineering is engineering discipline

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

We hope this list of Mechanical engineering OA journals will be helpful for you in deciding where to publish your Mechanical engineering manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Mechanical engineering journals that might be relevant to your field of study.Rather than just the top hits Mechanical engineering journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Mechanical engineering journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Mechanical engineering 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 Mechanical engineering journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
In the table above, relevance is used to determine the level of association between a journal and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations represent the times that works have cited papers under this journal. In our case, we obtain this data from OpenAlex, an open catalog of scholarly papers. It's hard to say how accurate it is but it can give you a general idea on how prestigious the journal is. The more work that have cited it, the better.
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
We do not offer publishing services. If you'd like to get your paper published, I would suggest you find a journal that suits your needs.
What is an APC?
In some cases, articles published in journals are made open access and freely available online, immediately upon publication. This is made usually made possible by an article-processing charge (APC) that covers the range of publishing services provided.
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)
