Archives of Thermodynamics publishes original papers which have not previously appeared in other journals. The language of the papers is English. No paper should exceed the length of 25 pages. All pages should be numbered. The plan and form of the papers should be as follows:
1. The heading should specify the title (as short as possible), author, his/her complete affiliation, town, zip code, country and e-mail. Please show the corresponding author. The heading should be followed by Abstract of maximum 15 typewritten lines.
2. More important symbols used in the paper can be listed in Nomenclature, placed below Summary and arranged in a column, e.g.:
u – velocity, m/s
v – specific volume, m/kg
The list should begin with Latin symbols in alphabetical order followed by Greek symbols also in alphabetical order and with a separate heading. Subscripts and superscripts should follow Greek symbols and should be identified with separate headings. Physical quantities should expressed in SI units.
3. The equations should be each in a separate line. The numbers of the equations should run on, irrespective of the division of the paper into sections. The numbers should be given in round brackets on the right-hand side of the page.
4. Particular attention should be paid to the differentiation between capital and small letters. If there is a risk of confusion, the symbols should be explained (for example small c) in the margins. Indices of more than one level (such as Bfa ) should be avoided wherever possible.
5. Computer-generated figures should be produced using pretty bold lines and characters. No remarks should be written directly on the figures, except numerals or letter symbols only, the relevant explanations given below in the caption.
6. The figures, including photographs, diagrams etc., should be numbered with Arabic numerals in the same order in which they appear in the text.
7. Computer files on an enclosed disc or sent by e-mail to the Editorial Office are welcome. The manuscript should be written as a Word file – ¤:doc or LATEX file –¤:tex.
8. The references for the paper should be numbered in the order in which they are called in the text. Calling the references is by giving the appropriate numbers in square brackets. The references should be listed with the following information provided: the author’s surname and the initials of his/her names, the complete title of the work (in English translation) and, in addition:
(a) for books: the publishing house and the place and year of publication, for example:
`1` Holman J.P.: Heat Transfer. McGraw-Hill, New York 1968.
(b) for journals: the name of the journal, volume (Arabic numerals in bold), year of publication (in round brackets), number and, if appropriate, numbers of relevant pages, for example:
`2` Rizzo F.I., Shippy D.I.: A method of solution for certain problems of transient heat conduction.
AIAA Journal 8(1970), No. 11, 2004–2009.
9. As the papers are published in English, the authors who are not native speakers of English are obliged to have the paper thoroughly reviewed language-wise before submitting for publication.
