Impact Score* 6.2
The main research concerns discussed in the journal are Combustion, Mechanics, Analytical chemistry, Thermodynamics and Ignition system. The journal focuses on Combustion but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Inorganic chemistry, Chemical engineering and Methane. While the journal focused on Mechanics, it was also able to explore topics like Combustor and Premixed flame.
The journal investigates Premixed flame research which frequently intersects with Diffusion flame. The concepts on Analytical chemistry presented in the journal can also apply to other research fields, including Soot, Hydrogen, Oxygen and Atmospheric pressure. Combustion and Flame tackles topics on Soot, which can potentially contribute to the wider field of Organic chemistry.
While Thermodynamics is the focus of Combustion and Flame, it also provided insights into the studies of Reaction rate, Detonation and Kinetic energy. The study on Ignition system presented in Combustion and Flame intersects with subjects under the field of Shock tube. Combustion and Flame covers various topics on Turbulence such as Reynolds number and Large eddy simulation.
The journal articles mostly deal with topics like Combustion, Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Analytical chemistry and Premixed flame. The journal articles focus on Combustion but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Hydrogen, Ignition system and Methane. The most cited publications facilitate discussions on Premixed flame that incorporate concepts from other fields like Diffusion flame and Laminar flow.
Combustion and Flame facilitates discussions on Combustion, Ignition system, Chemical engineering, Mechanics and Work (thermodynamics). The studies in Combustion featured incorporate elements of Hydrogen, Laminar flow, Thermodynamics and Activation energy. Combustion and Flame addresses concerns in Thermodynamics which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Reaction rate constant, Transition state theory, Reaction coordinate and Coupled cluster.
While the primary focus in it is Ignition system, it also dissects topics surrounding Shock tube and Ignition timing, Chemical reaction, Flame structure, Isobaric process and Biofuel as a whole. In addition to Chemical engineering research, Combustion and Flame aims to explore topics under Volumetric flow rate and Aluminium. The journal explores issues in Mechanics which can be linked to other research areas like Structure (category theory) and Realization (systems).
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 Combustion and Flame (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 Combustion and Flame (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, 21.05% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 0.00% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 6.67% 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 53.33% 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.
