The ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics publishes research contributions to the fundamental theory, algorithms, design, manufacture and experimental validation for mechanisms and robots. The current scope of the journal includes topics in theoretical and applied kinematics, mechanism synthesis and design, analysis and design of robot manipulators, hands, and legs, soft robotics, compliant mechanisms, origami and folded robots, printed robots, and haptic devices. The journal is also interested in novel fabrication, actuation and control techniques for mechanisms and robotics, bio-inspired approaches to mechanism and robot design, and the mechanics and design of micro- and nano-scale devices.


Q. How do I submit a paper to the ASME Journal of Mechanisms and Robotics?
