Modelling, Measurement and Control (MMC) is an annual international journal series including four journals: Series A: General Physics and Electrical Applications, Series B: Mechanics and Thermics, Series C: Chemistry, Geology, Environment and Bioengineering, and Series D: Production Engineering and Management, Organization, Human and Social Problems.

This is an open access journal series, which means that all content is freely available without charge. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author.

Inquiries and manuscript submissions may be sent to:


Instructions for Authors (AMSE periodicals)

Except for some survey papers, the papers must be original (research, development, results). Papers should be related to Modelling and/or Simulation. Then, authors are requested to indicate (if possible) to which AMSE series their paper is intended, although Referees may suggest another choice. Submissions are in English. All contributions are assessed by Referees. Also, don’t forget to quote MS (manuscript) number in all mails (number is given at the first submission). In order to allow a correct reproduction of the paper, submissions must comply with the following requirements:

*Titles (character size being 16), and numbered section headings, should be meaningful and concise, typed in bold characters and not in capital letters; (the rest is in Times 12, or equivalent). Skip a line between title and authors and between authors and affiliation addresses.

*Authors’ names and institution full addresses must be clearly indicated. Institution addresses should be complete; they are placed below the authors’ names and before the abstract. Do not give telephone numbers. E-mail addresses are compulsory, following the institution addresses. Give the initial letter (only and always) of given names.

*An Abstract (in English) of less than 150 words must precede the text; it follows immediately (on the first page) the institution addresses. Then Key Words should be indicated [between abstracts and text].

*Text follows immediately (on the first page) key words. Recommended full size for the text is 10 to 20 pages. Papers should be justified and organised in one column. The text must be typed (“Camera Ready”), on standard A4 size (21x29.7 cm). Finally, papers will be reduced, by the Editor (for the printed journals), to A5 format (beware of small characters). Font must be Times 12 (or equivalent size for the characters). Don’t use colours; papers are printed in black and white only. Use 1.5 spacing between the lines. The text must be about 17 cm width and 25 cm high with almost equal margins (margin will be slightly increased at the top of the first page: 4 cm); thus, margins should be set as indicated: right = 2 cm, left = 2 cm, top = 2.7 cm, bottom = 2 cm. Also, a (good) discussion and a conclusion are expected. Conclusion and discussion should not be in the same section. Please, number the pages (bottom of page).

*Tables and figures, with their captions (in normal font), are included in the text at the correct place and receive numbers, which appear in the text. Photographs (and colours) should be avoided. Don’t make too small figures with too small indications (the publisher reduces the format from A4 to A5 before printing).

*All Footnotes should be placed at the end of the paper, sorted by their reference number.

*A good care in the References must be introduced. Each citation must begin on a new line using the following format: Authors’ family names (preceded by the initial letter of the given name); Title, Year; THEN: Publisher, City, Country (for book) OR journal name, volume, pages, (for journals). Also, for conference proceedings indicate the place (town, country), the date (month, year), the meaning of acronyms (if any) and the pages of the paper in the proceedings (the reader should have access to the information if needed). References must be up to date and a minimum of 10 references is expected. Bibliography follows immediately the conclusion (or possible acknowledgements). Also, don’t forget to cite AMSE papers in the references; this is necessary for our recognition.

*Postal address: (if needed): AMSE Secretary/ 14 Avenue Berthelot/ 69 007 LYON (FRANCE)

Do not send special delivery mail, such as registered mail, to this address.

*Copyrights: In case of acceptance, copyrights are transferred to AMSE (see website).

*Submission: Papers can be submitted for regular processing or for electronic processing (indicate your choice).

Papers should be sent (electronic paper: Word 2003 recommended) to the General Secretary’s e-mail address:

Dr C. Berger-Vachon:

-Regular processing: papers will be printed and posted to Referees (the Editorial Committee will find the referees).

-Electronic processing (accelerated reviewing): please suggest 4 RELIABLE referees and indicate their electronic and postal addresses, not from your university, and one at least should not be from the main author’s country; please make sure the Referees will accept the reviewing if requested. Finally, two referees will be selected among them.

*AMSE website:

Important information from AMSE Board about periodical publication:
Many letters to AMSE deals with the following topic. So, let us make a statement about it.
Publications in AMSE journals are free of charge. Consequently, people working for AMSE are volunteers and they must do , first, their compulsory duties in their institutions.
This may lead to some delay in handling AMSE mail and submissions. The following delays should be regarded as normal:
*Acknowledgement letter (after a submission) : 1½ to 2 month,
*Reply from the Referee: another 4 months.
Unfortunately, sometimes, Referees forget to answer and added recalls have to be done lengthening the procedure and making AMSE work much heavier and the delay longer. And, finally, in the worst case, no reply come after the recall and the paper is taken by the AMSE Board; this is exceptional and really unfair and unpleasant.
After acceptance, papers are forwarded to Spain for printing. Contents of edited journals are indicated on our website.
So please, don't send information requests within these periods (mostly with repeated e-mail messages) as it may even more lengthen the delays.
Thank you for your collaboration and for accepting these rules which help our community to publish at a low cost
The General Secretary
