How to publish in this journal


Founded in 1992, JOURNAL OF THERMAL SCIENCE, an international multi-disciplinary journal of energy and power sciences in English language sponsored by the Institute of Engineering Thermophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, publishes high quality papers of original work on experimental, numerical and theoretical investigations from contributors throughout the world. The scope of the Journal covers the following aspects: engineering thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, aerothermodynamics of internal flows, heat and mass transfer, combustion and reaction; sustainability of energy systems; energy conservation and storage; energy efficiency and climate change mitigation; renewable energy; nuclear energy; building, urban and distributed energy systems; cooling and refrigeration, heat pump; transport energy and emissions; operation, diagnostics and control of energy systems; energy policy and management. Review papers and scholarly research articles of high scientific/technical quality related to the development, advancement, and improved understanding of energy, power and environment sciences are sought. The Journal also incorporates technical notes, short communications, and discussions on previous published papers. Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
