SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars - Mechanical Systems

Aims and Scope
The SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars—Mechanical Systems is the predominant scholarly publication for research and developments relating to the mechanical systems of light-duty, on-road passenger vehicles. Topics related to commercial vehicles, engines, and safety are covered by other SAE journals and thus are mostly excluded.

The Journal rigorously peer-reviews and disseminates authoritative, non-biased original research—theoretical and applied—and informative case studies with respect to the mechanical systems that comprise modern on-road automobiles. Only those outstanding and archival technical papers that either advance the state of the art or insightfully piece together prior research in ways that increase automotive understanding are selected for inclusion in this Journal. The Journal publishes broad information topics, including, but not limited to, optimization, dynamics, and interiors and exteriors, as well as myriad individual parts, components, assemblies, and systems.

SAE International's scholarly journals welcome authors from industry, academia, and government to submit original research for potential journal publication. Authors are invited to submit review-ready manuscripts featuring a detailed description of the research (including methodology, assumptions, hardware, observations, analysis, and a comparison of results with prior work). Papers that are deemed appropriate will undergo a comprehensive double-blind peer review for potential publication in the Journal.

Aims & Scope

The SAE International Journal of Passenger Cars–Mechanical Systems is the predominant scholarly publication for research and development relating to the mechanical systems of light-duty, on-road passenger vehicles. The Journal publishes broad information on topics including but not limited to optimization, dynamics, interiors and exteriors, as well as myriad individual parts, components, assemblies, and systems. Topics related to commercial vehicles, engines, and safety are covered by other SAE journals and thus are mostly excluded.

The Journal rigorously peer reviews and rapidly disseminates authoritative, non-biased original research—theoretical and applied—and informative case studies with respect to the mechanical systems which comprise modern on-road automobiles. Only those outstanding and archival technical papers which either advance the state of the art or insightfully piece together prior research in ways which increase automotive understanding are selected for inclusion in the Journal.

SAE's scholarly journals are currently running open Calls for Papers which are not subject to deadlines. Submissions will be evaluated throughout the year. Being published in SAE's scholarly journals can raise an author's profile in the automotive, aerospace, or commercial vehicles fields, while contributing to the industry's body of technical knowledge.

Submissions can be uploaded online via Editorial Manager—SAE's submission and peer review system. When uploading your review-ready manuscript, please include paper title, corresponding author name, and contact information. The submission process for this journal Call for Papers is different from that of SAE's events in that SAE's journals are not considering abstracts by themselves, but rather our editors assess whether the complete paper is appropriate for a journal peer review.

SAE International scholarly journals Mission Statement

Aligning with SAE International’s mission, SAE journals publish state-of-the-art research findings that advance vehicle and system knowledge in a neutral forum for the benefit of society. Each journal serves the needs of academic and industry authors, researchers, and readers in a medium tailored for the discovery, integration, and application of research. Reflecting SAE's commitment to the highest scientific publishing standards, all published articles are rigorously peer reviewed by at least three recognized experts prior to selection by a journal's Editorial Board, and the majority of SAE journals are indexed in the Web of Science, Emerging Sources Citation Index.
