10th Anniversary of Machines

The year 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of Machines, a peer-reviewed open-access journal on machinery and engineering. Machines has published more than 600 papers from more than 2000 authors, and more than 1500 reviewers have submitted at least one review report. We value the contributions made by authors and reviewers. To celebrate this 10th anniversary, we are arranging a series of special content and events. We hope you can join us in celebrating this milestone for our journal and enjoy the collection below.

Congratulations to Machines 10th Anniversary from Editorial Board
