General Journal guidelines for authors:

If the authors provide a previously published conference submission, Editors will check the submission to determine whether there has been sufficient new material added to warrant publication in the Journal.

The FU Mech Eng guidelines require such submissions to contain a significant amount of new material, that is, material that has not been published elsewhere. New results are not required; however, the submission should contain expansions of key ideas, examples, elaborations, etc. of the conference submission. The paper submitted to the journal should differ from the previously published material by at least 40 percent.

Research articles are usually up to 12 pages long. However, longer articles may be accepted with appropriate reasoning. Authors are requested to follow the FU Mech Eng guidelines in preparing their manuscripts. An article template can be found here.
