Written authorization may be required at the Editors' discretion. Manuscripts that do not meet the general criteria or standards for publication in Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics will be returned to the authors, without detailed review. Authors submitting a manuscript do so on the understanding that if the manuscript is accepted for publication, copyright in the article shall be assigned exclusively to the Publisher. Authors are responsible for obtaining permissions to reprint previously published figures, tables, and other material. Authors may suggest an editor from the list of our Associate Editors to handle the review of their paper, and may also suggest the names of six suitable referees. There are no submission fees or page charges. To submit a paper, please use Online Submission. To prepare a manuscript please see Preparation of Manuscript.

The accepted papers may be edited by the journal secretary and authors must read the proofs carefully. Proofs will be sent to the corresponding author. To avoid delay in publication, only necessary changes should be made, and the proofs should be returned promptly.


Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics

The Journal of Applied Fluid Mechanics (JAFM) is an international, peer-reviewed journal which covers a wide range of theoretical, numerical and experimental aspects in fluid mechanics. The emphasis is on the applications in different engineering fields rather than on pure mathematical or physical aspects in fluid mechanics. Although many high quality journals pertaining to different aspects of fluid mechanics presently exist, research in the field is rapidly escalating.
