Impact Score* 4.2
The primary areas of discussion in Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics are Mechanics, Turbulence, Classical mechanics, Fluid mechanics and Meteorology. The work on Mechanics addressed in it expands to the thematically related Thermodynamics. It explores topics in Turbulence which can be helpful for research in disciplines like Statistical physics and Instability.
In the journal, Vortex and Nonlinear system are investigated in conjunction with one another to address concerns in Classical mechanics research. Vortex research presented is mostly focused on the subject of Vorticity. Flow separation is the primary subject of Boundary layer works presented in it.
The published papers aim to foster the development of research in Mechanics, Turbulence, Classical mechanics, Statistical physics and Fluid mechanics. The Mechanics research presented in the published articles focuses mostly on Optics and, on occasion, topics in Nonlinear system. The studies tackled in the published articles, which mainly focus on Turbulence, apply to Boundary layer as well.
The journal investigates areas of study like Mechanics, Turbulence, Flow (psychology), Aerospace engineering and Particle. Aside from investigating topics in Drag under Mechanics, the journal also explores concepts in Range (statistics). In addition to Turbulence research, the journal aims to explore topics under Surface gravity, Capillary wave and Wind wave.
While work presented in the journal provided substantial information on Flow (psychology), it also covered topics in Drop (liquid), Fouling, Composite number, Composite material and Stage (hydrology).
A key indicator for each journal is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.
The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.
The top authors publishing in Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top authors publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top authors.
Only papers with recognized affiliations are considered
The top affiliations publishing in Annual Review of Fluid Mechanics (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top affiliations publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top affiliations.
The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.
The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.
During the most recent 2022 edition, 0.00% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 30.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 20.00% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 40.00% of all publications and 10.00% were from other institutions.
A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal from year to year.
The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the journal in relation to all participants in a given year.
The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.
Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).
The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:
The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
