Journal of Structural Design and Numerical Methods

Please read the guidelines before submitting the manuscript to Computational Science and Engineering Software Journal. Only online submission to Journal’s Manuscript Management System (JMMS) is allowed. To upload your manuscript, you need to login to JMMS. Please note, manuscript should be written in English, and manuscript not conforming to the guidelines mentioned below, may be returned.

Journal of Structural Design and Numerical Methods (JSDNM) Journal will only review the manuscripts which are, contributing something to society, of sufficient quality, and meet the scope of the Journal. For submission you will be required to warrant that, submission (work) is original, you have obtained all the rights in the work, the same work is not under consideration elsewhere, it has not been published previously, and you can supply all the required permissions for the reproduction of and copyright works not owned by you.

Editorial Policies

Review Policy

The submitted manuscripts are assessed by the reviewers and based on their recommendations decision for the acceptance of the article is being made. JSDNM is committed for the timely assessment of the manuscripts and the whole process takes approximately 8-10 weeks for the first review. We follow the review process which is common to many other publishers, i.e., single blind peer review. The reviewers’ identity is not disclosed, however, the reviewers’ are informed about the authors’ name, and affiliation. 

While submitting to JMMS, you will be asked to provide atleast 2 reviewers to review your manuscript. For providing the reviewers name following things should be kept in mind:

Reviewers should be the subject (field of study) expert and should be able to provide reasoning for the acceptance/rejection of the manuscript.

  • Reviewers are not from the same institution as that of authors
  • It is desirable to select the reviewers from different countries. (Optional).
  • Reviewers should not be aware about your manuscript submission.

Please note the Editors are not bound to invite any of the recommended reviewers for manuscript assessment.

Publishing Policies

For Authors’:

  • Originality of the article should be ensured by the authors. Plagiarism of any kind, be it publishing of someone else’s paper as the author’s own, or copying essential parts of other’s paper without appreciation is unacceptable and will incur plagiarism penalty.
  • Redundant publication or duplicate submission is intolerable. Authors are requested not to submit manuscripts which are published elsewhere or are under review in more than one journal.
  • Consent should be taken from all the co-authors, by author, before submitting the manuscript to the Computational Science and Engineering Software journal. Authorship can only be claimed if, Substantial contribution is made by someone, it is critically revised by someone, and if someone approves the final version of the manuscript before publication.
  • The author if discovers any fundamental error should notify the journal Chief Editor and cooperate in its correction or provide evidence in support of the originality of the article.
  • Due acknowledgement should be given in reference section to other researchers whose work are cited in the manuscript.
  • Any financial or other Conflicts of interest should be disclosed in author’s manuscript.


Journal of Structural design and Numerical Methods (JSDNM) Journal considers plagiarism, breaches of best practices, and copyright infringement issues unethical. We take every possible measure to protect the reputation of the journal against any type of malpractice. Before submitting any manuscript author must check for any duplication. If any of the above issues are found in the submitted articles JSDNM reserves the right to take action which is not limited to retracting the manuscript from the journal, but also the matter can be taken up to the head of the department of the author’s institution and relevant societies.  

Manuscript Submission

Manuscript Preparation

Manuscripts should be submitted in double spacing and font size should be taken as 11 pt. All manuscript must use SI (metric) units in the text, figures, or tables. Manuscripts should be structured in the following order:

  • Title,

  • Abstract (not exceeding 200 words),
  • Introduction,
  • Main body of paper,
  • Funding,
  • Acknowledgements
  • References.

Article Types

Research Article: This work should relate to the original research or any aspect of engineering, maintenance, operation, production, and education etc.

Technical Note: It should be the description of some new development or a short statement on a research project.

Review Article: It should be a critical review of the work which includes theoretical illustrations and numerical examples in the field of engineering.

File Types

JSDNM allows the authors’ to follow their own way. But authors are requested to follow the reference and citation format of the journal as given below. The manuscript size should not exceed 6 MB, if it exceeds 6 MB then figures should be submitted separately. Manuscript should be submitted in Word Doc file.
