Journal of Machining and Forming Technologies

The Journal of Machining and Forming Technologies (JMFT) is a refereed, international Journal that publishes high quality articles with an emphasis on research and development in recent advances in machining and forming technologies. JMFT provides discussion and the exchange of information on all important aspects of modern industry.

JMFT focuses on machining and forming technologies, including traditional machining (turning, milling, drilling, etc.), non-traditional machining (EDM, USM, LAM, etc.), abrasive machining, hard part machining, high speed machining, high efficiency machining, micromachining, internet-based machining, metal casting, powder metallurgy, extrusion, forging, rolling, drawing, sheet metal forming, microforming, hydroforming, thermoforming, incremental forming, plastics/composites processing, ceramic processing, hybrid processes (thermal, plasma, chemical and electrical energy assisted methods), etc. The machinability and formability of all materials will be considered, including metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, biomaterials, nanomaterials, etc.

The Journal covers the computational and optimization techniques applied in machining and forming technologies such as FEM modelling and simulation, micro/macro modelling, thermo-mechanical modelling, numerical simulation including new and advanced numerical strategies, inverse identification, design experiments, statistical methods, genetic algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy systems, particle swarm optimization, etc.

Contributions to JMFT are welcome in the following formats: original full research articles, review articles, technical notes, and case studies. Articles and contributions are welcome on all subjects of machining and forming technologies. Especially welcome are articles and material that pioneer new research directions, raise new questions and new possibilities, or examine old problems from a new angle. JMFT also publishes special issues on selected topics reflecting recent advances in machining and forming technologies or on selected articles of conferences. Proposals can be submitted directly to the Editor-in-Chief.

Journal of Machining and Forming Technologies is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes four issues per year. The journal is owned and operated by Nova Science Publishers and funded entirely by subscription revenue and author-optional publication services.

There is no charge to submit your article and have it published in the journal. Nova offers a number of optional publication services that carry fees, but authors are not required to select these services, and the services won’t be offered until after acceptance of the articles. These services include Open Access, color printing, article offprints, discounted print copies of the journal issue, and licenses for use of the published articles.

Submission of an article implies that the authors will assign the copyright to Nova if their article is accepted for publication. A standard Copyright Transfer Form will be provided to the Corresponding Author of each article during the page proof stage of production.

Authors will receive a complimentary PDF of the full final issue and a complimentary PDF of his or her final article upon publication.

Authors may deposit and display the proofed versions of their articles in and on their personal non-commercial and affiliate non-commercial repositories and websites at any time. The same may be done with their final published articles only after a period of one year has elapsed from the day of publication.

Manuscript Submissions
Before submitting your article, please read the complete notes and instructions below to ensure that you understand Nova’s manuscript requirements and publication procedures and that you are in compliance with the ethical standards rightfully set forth by Nova, the publishing industry, and the scientific community.

Articles should be submitted by e-mail directly to the Editor-in-Chief, Professor J. Paulo Davim.

It is understood that articles submitted to the journal have not been submitted elsewhere for simultaneous publication consideration and have not been previously published, in whole or in part, unless the new article is an expansion of the original, in which case full transparency of the re-used portions must be provided.

Manuscript Preparation
Submissions should include the following items as separate files.

- Title Page
- Anonymized Manuscript

Title Page
The Title Page will remain separate from the manuscript throughout the peer-review process and will not be sent to the reviewers. The Title Page should include:

- A concise and informative title
- All authors' complete names with academic degrees and complete affiliations
- A complete address for the corresponding author, including an e-mail address

If you have variations of the title that you would like Nova to use as the Running Head, please mark that at the beginning of the article.

Anonymized Manuscript
Please remove any identifying information, such as authors' names or affiliations, from your manuscript before submission.

The manuscript should be typed in Times New Roman 12-point font and have the following components in numbered order and each beginning on a new page. The text should be under the headings, Abstract, Keywords, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Acknowledgements, References, Tables, and Figures. Abstracts should not exceed 250 words and should incorporate background, objective, study group, methods, results, and conclusions. At least three key words should appear under the Abstract.

Illustrations
All diagrams, photographs, illustrations, and charts (not tables) should be referred to in the text as Figures, and they should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. These figures must be supplied as separate electronic files named in the format in which they were created, and they must be one of the following types: tiff, bitmap, jpeg, gif, ppt, psd, png, or eps. The resolution of these figures must be at least 300 dpi and of good contrast. Please use patterning instead of colors for all graphs and charts when possible. Each Figure should include a title and short description.

Figures must also be placed inside or at the end of the manuscript. If scanned images are used, please retain the original hard copy of the figure for possible transmission to Nova Science Publishers. If previously published figures are used, written permission from the copyright holders must be obtained and submitted along with the text indicating the copyright holder’s citation instructions. Such permissions must grant unrestricted use.
