International Journal of Heat and Technology (IJHT) is an international, scholarly and peer-reviewed journal dedicated to providing scientists, engineers and technicians with the latest developments on heat transfer, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics, as well as their industrial applications. In addition to these focal points, the IJHT covers all kinds of subjects related to heat and technology, including but not limited to turbulence, combustion, cryogenics, porous media, multiphase flow, radiative transfer, heat and mass transfer, micro- and nanoscale systems, and thermophysical property measurement. The editorial board encourages the authors from all countries to submit papers on the relevant issues, especially those aimed at the practitioner as much as the academic. The papers should further our understanding of the said subjects, and make a significant original contribution to knowledge.
The IJHT is an open access journal. All contents are available for free, that is, users are entitled to read, download, duplicate, distribute, print, search or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without prior consent from the publisher or the author.
Focus and Scope
The IJHT welcomes original research papers, technical notes and review articles on the following disciplines:
- Heat transfer
- Fluid dynamics
- Porous media
- Multiphase flow
- Radiative transfer
- Heat and mass transfer
- Micro- and nanoscale systems
- Thermophysical property measurement
Papers reporting the application of these disciplines, with emphasis on new technological fields, are also welcomed. Some of these new fields are microscale, electronic and mechanical systems, thermal and flow control in internal and external environments, etc.
The IJHT is published quarterly in the last week of each March, June, September and December, with four regular issues (excluding special issues) and one volume per year.
- Open Submissions
- Peer Reviewed
Peer Review Process
The IIETA adopts a double blind review process. Once submitted, a paper dealing with suitable topics will be sent to the editor-in-chief or managing editor, and then be reviewed by at least two experts in the relevant field. The reviewers are either members of our editorial board or special external experts invited by the journal. In light of the reviewers’ comments, the editor-in-chief or managing editor will make the final decision over the publication, and return the decision to the author.
There are four possible decisions concerning the paper: acceptance, minor revision, major revision and rejection. Acceptances means the paper will be published directly without any revision. Minor revision means the author should make minor changes to the manuscript according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or managing editor. Major revision means the author should modify the manuscript significantly according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or managing editor. Rejection means the submitted paper will not be published.
If a paper is accepted, the editor-in-chief or managing editor will send an acceptance letter to the author, and ask the author to prepare the paper in MS Word using the template of IIETA.
Plagiarism is committed when one author uses another work without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. Plagiarism takes different forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. The IIETA uses CrossRef to screen for unoriginal material. Authors submitting to an IIETA journal should be aware that their paper may be submitted to CrossRef at any point during the peer-review or production process. Any allegations of plagiarism made to a journal will be investigated by the editor-in-chief or managing editor. If the allegations appear to be founded, we will request all named authors of the paper to give an explanation of the overlapping material. If the explanation is not satisfactory, we will reject the submission, and may also reject future submissions.
