The Journal of Robotics and Mechatronics publishes both fundamental and application oriented original papers dealing with robotics and mechatronics. The Journal is technically co-sponsored by the Robotics and Mechatronics Division of the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.
The Journal publishes Papers, Development Reports, Reviews, Letters, Notes and Discussions.
Papers : Presentation of significant research and development in technical areas in robotics and mechatronics. Papers should include a carefully worded Abstract of roughly 200 words, Keywords within 5 words.
Development Reports : Presentation of new products or systems which are newly developed in robotics and mechatronics.
Reviews : Presentation of overview of the state-of-art in robotics and mechatronics . Historical perspective view is also included in this category. Authors will be asked by editorial committee.
Letters : Presentation of a single result, experiment, or technique of general interest for which a letter treatment is appropriate. Letters are limited to two Journal pages.
Notes : Presentation of a trial of new approach or valuable data even though it is not completed.
Discussions : Discussions are a separate class of short manuscripts. Appropriate items include (but are not limited to) rebuttals and/or counter examples of previously published papers.
2. Style of Manuscript
All manuscripts should be written in correct English and convey ideas of importance to the robotics and mechatronics community. The first manuscript page should contain author(s) name, affiliation(s), a corresponding author’s address, phone/fax number, and e-mail address. Except both Letters and News, there is no limitation for the maximum pages. Double-spaced typewritten pages, with single column, double spacing is recommended but not limited to this.
A good number of References must be cited. References must include only printed academic materials, e.g. journal and conference papers, books, and do not include any Web URLs. References should have the following style : Author (with family name first), title, journal title, volume, number, page numbers (pp 100-105), (year). If author(s) would cite URLs, they should be listed in separate “Supporting Online Material(s)” which follows References.
