SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2014 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

The International Journal of Heat and Fluid Flow publishes high impact research that primarily expands upon the interplay between fluid dynamic processes and convective heat transfer through the use of experiments and/or computer simulations. Papers are welcomed that report the uses of these disciplines to engineering design and development. The Journal especially seeks to publish high-quality original contributions that focus on interdisciplinary applications, including but not limited to micro/nano-scale systems; medical and biological systems; fluid-structure interaction; and thermal and flow control in both the internal and external environment. In all cases, papers should emphasize the physics associated with the problem considered.
The Journal accepts multimedia additions to published papers; please read our Multimedia Instructions.
The Journal occasionally will supplement its regular issues with special theme issues.
