This article for the first time publishes a journal review opinion given by the editor-in-chief of Chinese Journal of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (CJTAM), Professor Qian Xuesen in 1961. It carefully interprets Professor Qian's guiding principle for running the journal and reviewing academic papers, as well as his high standards for journal publication. This article also introduces the historical background of Professor Qian’s review comment and its effect and influence. The author hopes that by reviewing this historical past we can revisit Professor Qian’s scientific spirit for running scientific journal and for promoting theoretical mechanics. The author is motivated to promote the legacy of CJTAM and developing unique journal features in the practice of running scientific and technological journals in the new era.
