Aims and scope
The research topics addressed by Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences (AMSES) cover the vast domain of the advanced modeling and simulation of materials, processes and structures governed by the laws of mechanics. The emphasis is on advanced and innovative modeling approaches and numerical strategies. The main objective is to describe the actual physics of large mechanical systems with complicated geometries as accurately as possible using complex, highly nonlinear and coupled multiphysics and multiscale models, and then to carry out simulations with these complex models as rapidly as possible. In other words, this research revolves around efficient numerical modeling along with model verification and validation. Therefore, the corresponding papers deal with advanced modeling and simulation, efficient optimization, inverse analysis and simulation-based control. These challenging issues require multidisciplinary efforts – particularly in modeling, numerical analysis and computer science – which are treated in this journal.
Why publish your article in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences?
Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences's open access policy allows maximum visibility of articles published in the journal as they are available to a wide, global audience.
Speed of publication
Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences offers a fast publication schedule whilst maintaining rigorous peer review; all articles must be submitted online, and peer review is managed fully electronically (articles are distributed in PDF form, which is automatically generated from the submitted files). Articles will be published with their final citation after acceptance, in both fully browsable web form, and as a formatted PDF; the article will then be available through Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences and SpringerOpen.
Online publication in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences gives you the opportunity to publish large datasets, large numbers of color illustrations and moving pictures, to display data in a form that can be read directly by other software packages so as to allow readers to manipulate the data for themselves, and to create all relevant links (for example, to PubMed, to sequence and other databases, and to other articles).
Promotion and press coverage
Articles published in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences are included in article alerts and regular email updates.
In addition, articles published in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences may be promoted by press releases to the general or scientific press. These activities increase the exposure and number of accesses for articles published in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences.
Authors of articles published in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences retain the copyright of their articles and are free to reproduce and disseminate their work (for further details, see the copyright and license agreement).

All articles published by Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Further information about open access can be found here.
As authors of articles published in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences you are the copyright holders of your article and have granted to any third party, in advance and in perpetuity, the right to use, reproduce or disseminate your article, according to the SpringerOpen copyright and license agreement.
For those of you who are US government employees or are prevented from being copyright holders for similar reasons, SpringerOpen can accommodate non-standard copyright lines. Please contact us if further information is needed.
Open access publishing is not without costs. CSMA partly subsidizes the standard article-processing charge for Advanced Modelling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences and the journal therefore levies a lower article-processing charge of £785/$1230/€1000 for each article accepted for publication. If the corresponding author's institution is a Member, the cost of the article-processing charge is covered by the membership, and no further charge is payable. In the case of authors whose institutions are Supporter Members, however, a discounted article-processing charge is payable by the author. We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.
The full text of all articles is deposited in digital archives around the world to guarantee long-term digital preservation. You can also access all articles published by SpringerOpen on SpringerLink.
We are working closely with relevant indexing services including PubMed Central and Web of Science (Thomson Reuters) to ensure that articles published in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences will be available in their databases when appropriate.
Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences is indexed in the following services:
- Google Scholar
- Summon by ProQuest
Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous.
The benefit of single-blind peer review is that it is the traditional model of peer review that many reviewers are comfortable with, and it facilitates a dispassionate critique of a manuscript.
Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates already published work, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board.
All manuscripts submitted to Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences should adhere to SpringerOpen's editorial policies.
Citing articles in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences
Articles in Advanced Modeling and Simulation in Engineering Sciences should be cited in the same way as articles in a traditional journal. Because articles are not printed, they do not have page numbers; instead, they are given a unique article number.
Article citations follow this format:
Authors: Title. Adv Model Simul Eng Sci [year], [volume number]:[article number].
e.g. Roberts LD, Hassall DG, Winegar DA, Haselden JN, Nicholls AW, Griffin JL: Increased hepatic oxidative metabolism distinguishes the action of Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor delta from Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor gamma in the Ob/Ob mouse. Adv Model Simul Eng Sci 2009, 1:115.
refers to article 115 from Volume 1 of the journal.
