Once a paper is accepted, its copyright is assigned exclusively to the Journal of Engineering Mechanics.3. Manuscript Preparation:3.1 Manuscripts together with the Copyright Agreements (http:// gclx.tsinghua.edu.cn) must be submitted via both the E-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the online system (http:// gclx.tsinghua.edu.cn).

Commonly used symbols are suggested. Characters that may be confused should be distinguished clearly [e.g. 0 (numeral) and O (letter), 1 (numeral) and I (letter)]. The use of SI units is mandatory.3.3 All illustrations should be provided in a camera-ready form. Photocopies of illustrations are acceptable as long as they are adequately legible. They should be placed at the right positions in the manuscript. The original illustrations should be supplied when the manuscript is accepted for publication.3.4 A minimum of ten references, preferably of late years, should be cited consecutively in the manuscript. All references cited in the text should be collected in a list following the text of the manuscript. They should run consecutively through the paper. The references should be complete and grouped in the following sequence: Surname and initials of the author(s), title of paper, (publisher for book), year of publication, volume number, issue number, inclusive page numbers. Authors may consult the latest issues of the journal for style.3.5 The first person (e.g. I or we) should be avoided in the English abstract. The English abstract should be more than 700 printed characters but no more than 1200. It should include the objective, implementation processes and methodology, and conclusions. The exposition should be concise and logical. The use of short sentences is encouraged. The English abstract should be consistent with the Chinese version. A Chinese version of the English abstract is desirable but not necessary for overseas contributions who submit manuscripts in English.4. The manuscript will not be returned to the authors regardless of whether or not it is accepted. Authors may inquire about the status of the manuscript via Manuscript Tracking in the online system after submission.5. Once the paper is accepted, a ruled layout sheet will be sent to the authors. Authors should submit in time an electronic copy on a compact disk along with a hardcopy of the final version of the manuscript to the Editorial Office.6. Multiple submissions of a manuscript are not accepted for review.
