The aim of the quarterly journal Archives of Thermodynamics is to disseminate knowledge between scientists and engineers worldwide and to provide a forum for original research conducted in the field of thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid flow, combustion and energy conversion in various aspects of thermal sciences, mechanical and power engineering. Besides original research papers, review articles are also welcome. All articles are blind peer-reviewed by two independent reviewers.

The journal scope of interest encompasses in particular, but is not limited to:

  • Classical and extended non-equilibrium thermodynamics,
  • Thermodynamic analysis including exergy,
  • Thermodynamics of heating and cooling,
  • Thermodynamics of nuclear power generation,
  • Thermodynamics in defense engineering,
  • Advances in thermodynamics,
  • Experimental, theoretical and numerical heat transfer,
  • Heat and momentum transfer in multiphase flows and nanofluids,
  • Renewable energy sources including solar energy,
  • Hydrogen Energy,
  • Thermal Energy Conversion,
  • Energy Transition,
  • Advanced Energy Carriers,
  • Energy storage and efficiency,
  • Energy in buildings,
  • Secondary fuels and fuel conversion,
  • Combustion and emissions,
  • Thermal incineration of wastes and waste heat recovery,
  • Thermal and energy system analysis,
  • Combined and integrated energy systems,
  • Distributed energy generation,
  • Turbomachinery.
