Dear Colleagues,

the journal Machine Design publishes fundamental research about mechanical engineering and design including machineelements, design fundamentals, computer aided design, product forms, shapes and performances, manufacturing processes and technologies, theory of materials, its structures and capabilities, product design management, technology management, communication and cognitive science.

The journal Machine Design is published by the Faculty of Technical Sciences in Novi Sad four issues per year. Publishing this journal we would like to make mechanical engineering more interesting and to promote it as an important branch of engineering in the light of modern techniques and new technologies.

The journal is a good opportunity to show and present the results of our recent work and researching. Also, it is a chance for leader researchers and scientists in the field of machine design from abroad to represent their researching results. In such way, we would like to obtain insight in the present situation of mechanical engineering in the region, to know and learn about researching in other institutions, to compare results and find out new solutions, as well as to make new contacts and find out mutual interests for international cooperation and researching on a project or some topic.

The journal Machine Design is on the Index Copernicus international journals master list and on DOAJ – Directory of Open Access Journals. Its editorial board will try further to develop this publication in order to achieve and maintain a high quality of publications, so we can receive an Impact factor. Our goals are to be referred in international publication databases, to provide an international medium for scientific contribution and participation to mechanical engineers and to create a platform for the communication between science and industry in the field of technical sciences.

Also, we would like to promote and to encourage international cooperation, mutual researching, projects and publishing papers between foreign partners’ institutions. Thus, we want to help better understanding and knowing about work and researching of colleagues from all over the world.

I hope You will recognize the interest to publish Your paper in the journal Machine Design; so, with a great pleasure, I call You to send further Your papers for this journal.

With deep respect and gratitude,
Siniša Kuzmanović and Milan Rackov
