JMST Introduction
I am delighted to be the fifth-term Editor-in-Chief of JMST as of November 1, 2014.
JMST has been growing continuously in its quality as well as in its volume expansion.
I will make consistent efforts in order to improve JMST to be a prestigious journal in the international mechanical engineering community in following two ways.
First, the acceptance rate of the papers of JMST will be kept under 30% to maintain the journal in high quality.
Second, review cycle will be made as fast as possible with active participation and contribution of all the members involved in the process.
I truly thank Editors, Associate Editors, and Reviewers of JMST for their services and dedications to the editorial works. I also appreciate Authors and Readers for their continuing concern and support to JMST.

To Authors
Prospective authors can submit directly to the subject editors as described in the information for authors. Submitted articles may be survey papers (extensive reviews of established or emerging research topics or application areas) or papers (detailed discussion involving new research, applications or development). The journal also publishes special issues on subjects of increasing importance.
To become a premier journal, however, we warmly welcome your active participation and contribution, not only by submitting your precious works, but also by making constructive suggestions for improving the journal.
