Journal Information

Thank you, 30th Anniversary!
Along with the flexible automation system, mechatronics and robotics have become highly developed in Japan to make it a big R&D center in the world.

There are plenty of journals on mechatronics and robotics in Japan, however, they are all written in Japanese language so that a few of them have contributed for increase in universal funds of knowledge.
Thus both Japanese and overseas researchers have failed in exchange of their knowledge on robotics and mechatronics.
We publish the "JRM" to cope with this problem.

The journal title is abbreviated as "J. Robot. Mechatron.".

Indexing and Abstracting

JRM is indexed and abstracted in the following databases.

Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI)
From 2015 Clarivate Analytics (former Intellectual Property and Science division of Thomson Reuters) has launched the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), which extends the universe of publications in Web of Science to include high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields. ESCI also makes content important to funders, key opinion leaders, and evaluators visible in Web of Science Core Collection even if it has not yet demonstrated citation impact on an international audience.
Journals in ESCI have passed an initial editorial evaluation and can continue to be considered for inclusion in products such as SCIE, SSCI, and AHCI, which have rigorous evaluation processes and selection criteria. All ESCI journals will be indexed according to the same data standards, including cover-to-cover indexing, cited reference indexing, subject category assignment, and indexing all authors and addresses.
Rapidly changing research fields and the rise of interdisciplinary scholarship calls for libraries to provide coverage of relevant titles in evolving disciplines. ESCI provides Web of Science Core Collection users with expanded options to discover relevant scholarly content. Get real-time insight into a journal’s citation performance while the content is considered for inclusion in other Web of Science collections. Items in ESCI are searchable, discoverable, and citable so you can measure the contribution of an article in specific disciplines and identify potential collaborators for expanded research.
The largest abstract and citation database of research literature and quality web sources covering nearly 20,500 titles from more than 5,000 publishers. If you have a portable username and password, you can log in above to access Scopus.
Compendex (Ei)
Compendex is one of the most comprehensive engineering literature databases available to engineers. With 15.8 million records across 190 engineering disciplines, Compendex delivers the comprehensive, precise information and insights that researchers need. Available on Engineering Village, users get results that are consistently accurate. Relevant. Up-to-date. And easy to find. Compendex indexes 1,031 journals that contain articles-in-press.
Scirus is the most comprehensive scientific research tool on the web. With over 575 million scientific items indexed at last count, it allows researchers to search for not only journal content but also scientists' homepages, courseware, pre-print server material, patents and institutional repository and website information.
