Journals in Mechanical Engineering

Here are the principal journals in which Polytechnique Montréal professors in the Mechanical Engineering Department have published the most in the last five years (2014 to 2018).

  • Number of articles for the Mechanical Engineering Department only
  • 2018 impact factors taken from Journal Citation Reports
  • View the details of the archiving permissions granted by the publisher in the standard copyright transfer contract

Important note about comparing impact factors: The impact factor of a journal is determined by the number of citations to its articles. For more details, consult the guide Promoting Your Research Activities - Journal Impact. Also, citation practices are often very different from one field to another and the professors of the same department can publish in several fields. Therefore, caution should be used when comparing impact factors. It would be wrong to conclude that journals with the highest impact factor in this list are automatically the most prestigious or the most renowned.
