Impact Score* 13.5
International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer primarily tackles Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Heat transfer coefficient and Heat flux. Nusselt number, Reynolds number, Natural convection, Turbulence and Laminar flow studies are all carried out as a component of the study in Mechanics presented. The in-depth study on Nusselt number also explores topics in the intersecting field of Prandtl number.
International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer focuses on Reynolds number research which is adjacent to topics in Flow (psychology). The research on Laminar flow discussed in International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer draws on the closely related field of Boundary layer. Convection, Nucleate boiling, Thermal conduction, Boiling and Mass transfer are all areas of Thermodynamics tackled in it.
The Thermal conduction study tackled is a key component of adjacent topics in the area of Thermal conductivity. While work presented in the journal provided substantial information on Heat transfer, it also covered topics in Thermal, Pressure drop and Composite material. The journal holds forums on Heat transfer coefficient that merges themes from other disciplines such as Film temperature and Churchill–Bernstein equation.
The most cited publications cover a variety of subjects, including Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Heat transfer, Heat transfer coefficient and Nusselt number. Most of the Mechanics studies addressed in the most cited articles also intersect with Classical mechanics. While the most cited publications focused on Heat transfer, they were also able to explore topics like Thermal conduction and Composite material.
International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer tackles a plethora of topics, such as Mechanics, Heat transfer, Heat flux, Thermal and Pressure drop. The study on Mechanics presented is investigated in conjunction with research in Fin. International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer explores research in Heat transfer alongside concepts in Heat sink and other areas of study in Microchannel.
Topics in Heat flux were tackled in line with various other fields like Thin film and Boiling. The studies on Thermal discussed can also contribute to research in the domains of Natural convection, Convection, Phonon and Thermal conductivity. The concepts on Pressure drop presented in the journal can also apply to other research fields, including Vapor quality, Heat transfer coefficient, Mass flux, Vortex generator and Pressure gradient.
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 International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer (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 International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer (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, 5.43% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 17.21% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 14.75% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 14.75% of all publications and 53.28% 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.
