These sources consist of legitimate science or are evidence based through the use of credible scientific sourcing. Legitimate science follows the scientific method, is unbiased, and does not use emotional words. These sources also respect the consensus of experts in the given scientific field and strive to publish peer-reviewed science. Some sources in this category may have a slight political bias but adhere to scientific principles. See all Pro-Science sources.
- Overall, we rate Frontiers in Aerospace Engineering as a Pro-Science journal based on peer review and a clean fact-check record. We also rate them Mostly Factual due to Frontier Media retractions of studies either pre or post-publication.

Analysis / Bias
In review, Frontiers in Aerospace Engineering is an open-access journal that publishes information and research related to aviation engineering. The journal primarily publishes research such as this Efficacy of an Elasto-Flexible Morphing Wing at High Lift Using Fluid-Structure-Interaction Simulations.
Frontiers Media has been criticized for being a predatory open-access publisher. In short, Predatory Open Access publishing is an exploitative open-access publishing business model that involves charging publication fees to authors without providing the editorial and publishing services associated with legitimate journals.
In general, Frontiers in Aerospace Engineering is a credible scientific journal, as we cannot find any controversy or significant retractions to date. However, Frontiers Media has retracted some studies in other publications that were found to be of poor methodology and not thoroughly peer-reviewed.
