Technology has evolved through the dynamic process of knowledge transfer. The exploration of technological evolution from a quantitative perspective has often been mentioned in the intellectual pursuit. The study applies bibliometric method to the articles published in the field of mechanism and machine theory (MMT). Afterward we analyzed the trends of MMT articles during the 30 years. We found that the ratios of the MMT papers in each journal have a trend of growth and have been centered on the certain two magazines. The articles of MMT exhibit a trend of growth. The USA, China and Canada are the major countries which frequently published the papers in the field of MMT and have significant performance in citations. China has rapidly grown in the quantity and the ratios of papers. In addition, the top 10 researchers with the highest h-index in the field of MMT are primarily affiliated with institutions in English-spoken countries, trumping the other countries. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications.
