Archives of Thermodynamics

ISSN: 1231-0956 (print version)
            2083-6023 (electronic version)

The aim of the quarterly journal Archives of Thermodynamics is to disseminate knowledge between scientists and engineers interested in thermodynamics and heat transfer and to provide a forum for original research conducted primarily in Central and Eastern Europe, but also all over the world. The journal scope of interest encompasses all aspects of the field, ranging from classical thermodynamics and extended non-equilibrium thermodynamics, through all modes of heat transfer to thermodynamic aspects of multiphase flow and combustion. Both theoretical and applied contributions are welcome. Only original papers or state-of-art reviews written in English are considered for publication. All articles are blind peer-reviewed by two independent reviewers.

Appears since 1980, four issues per year.

Publication funding of this journal is provided by resources of the Polish Academy of Sciences and The Szewalski Institute of the Fluid-Flow Machinery of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

An online version of Archives of Thermodynamics is published on PAN platform since 2010:
