Purpose and Scope:

The Journal of Heat Transfer disseminates information of permanent interest in the areas of heat and mass transfer. Contributions may consist of results from fundamental research that apply to thermal energy or mass transfer in all fields of mechanical engineering and related disciplines. Also, archival results of research that focuses on the evaluation of thermophysical properties associated with heat and mass transfer, as well as on the theory of heat and mass transfer, are published. The Journal of Heat Transfer is complementary to the Journal of Thermal Science and Engineering Applications, which focuses on applications.
