Aims and Scope
Science Advances is the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) open access multidisciplinary journal, publishing impactful research papers and reviews in any area of science, in both disciplinary-specific and broad, interdisciplinary areas. The mission of Science Advances is to provide fair, fast, and expert peer review to authors and a vetted selection of research, freely available to readers. Led by a team of distinguished scientists and allowing flexible article formats, Science Advances supports the AAAS mission by extending the capacity of Science magazine to identify and promote significant advances in science and engineering across a wide range of areas. The journal’s use of evolving digital publishing technologies plays a critical role in building and sustaining AAAS’s mission as a global participant and advocate for the communication and use of science to benefit humankind.

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
Science sub-journals are impressive without comments. However, the three major journals and their sub-journals mainly focus on the fields of biology, chemistry, and medicine, and are not very friendly towards traditional mechanics. My research direction is multi-energy field coupling and vibration suppression mechanism, which leans towards physics. The overall editor of Science gave the evaluation of "very substantial engineering work that is more suitable for specialized journals" and categorizes it as engineering, leading to rejection within a week. Originally, I submitted it in the direction of applied science and engineering, originating from engineering, extracting mechanisms and applying them in a broader direction. This journal requires passing through three stages: first, the chief editor rejects 60% of submissions, then the assistant chief editor rejects another 60%, leaving only 10 out of approximately 100 articles for external review. Therefore, the key is whether the editors decide to review it or not. It is very difficult for traditional mechanics to be published in comprehensive journals. It would be best if the list of authors includes a renowned foreign expert; otherwise, the chances of being cannon fodder are very high.

It took a total of 10 months, with slightly longer waiting times for the two minor revisions, causing some anxiety, but in the end, good news was received.
