Elsevier's new journal in boundary mechanics research

Now freely accessible!

We are delighted to announce the publication of the first issue of Extreme Mechanics Letters, Elsevier's new journal in mechanics which was first introduced to you in the summer of 2014.

"This first issue includes papers addressing issues such as bio/medical science (mechanics of healthy and diseased human red blood cells), micro-nanotechnology (stress evolution in thin films and plasticity in micro-pillars), energy materials (stresses in lithium-ion battery materials), interesting mechanics phenomena (patterns in elastic sewing machine), and various phenomena in soft materials (Ca2+ triggered stress generation in hydrogels, toughening of hydrogels, etc.)" explains Jimmy K. Hsia, co-Editor-in-Chief.

We hope that you enjoy the research presented in this issue and would be very much honored if you would like to share any of the articles with your colleagues and fellow researchers. Even better if you are inspired and would like to submit your research to the journal, details about the journal can be found on the journal homepage. If you would like to learn more about the scope of the journal, the type of research we expect to receive, or the goals we'd like to achieve for Extreme Mechanics Letters, the editors are more than happy to share their insights and learn about your thoughts.

Extreme Mechanics Letters offers you a choice in how you wish to disseminate your research - either by publishing it as a subscription article or as an open access article. Find out more about open access options here
