Guidelines for Authors

HOME > Guidelines for Authors

Submission of Manuscripts:

The submission/review process for International Journal of Fluid Machinery and Systems is handled electronically on the web-site, http://www.editorialmanager.com/ijfms. The manuscript should be in English and on the format available from:


Submission of a paper implies that the work described has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form without the written consent of the Publisher.

The paper submitted will be reviewed following the Peer Review Process.

On submission, it is required to enter a pass word composed of 4-8 characters to be used during the review process-please be sure to record it. An abstract of 60-120 words is required to be submitted. The abstract will be used for selecting reviewers.


Types of Papers:

Original Paper: A paper that reports technically original research output, which has academic and/or industrial contributions. Original papers undergo full peer review. Review Paper: A brief evaluation of a current technology, application, or product. Publication of a submitted review paper is determined by the editor.


Publication Charge:

Publication charge per an accepted paper is US$200 or JPY 22,000 (only for authors in Japan) regardless of number of pages. The amount of JPY might be updated depending on exchange rate.


Copyright:

Upon submission, it is requested that the authors agreed to transfer the copyright of the paper to the supporting societies, Korean Society for Fluid Machinery, Chinese Society of Engineering Thermophysics, and Turbomachinery Society of Japan, and IAHR Section on Hydraulic Machinery and Systems. The copyright will be returned to the authors when the paper is rejected. The authors preserve their rights to use their articles for reproduction and translation. However, when the authors wish to reproduce the whole article as it is, they are requested to report to one of the Editors-in-Chief.


Notification:

The review progress can be monitored online using the password registered on submission. So please be sure to record the password which you’ve registered and the paper number which has been issued on submission.


Preparation of Final Manuscript:

When accepted, the authors are requested to prepare final pdf manuscript file following the template in a style which can be downloaded from here. The information of the volume, number and the page as well as the received, revised and accepted dates will be notified when accepted. No change can be made after submitting the final manuscript. Preparation of final manuscript is solely the author’s responsibility.


Author enquiries:

All author enquiries should be made to one of the Editors-in-Chief, KIM, Kwang-Yong kykim@inha.ac.kr, TANUMA, Tadashi t-tanuma@med.teikyo-u.ac.jp, ZHANG, Yang-Jun yjzhang@mail.tsinghua.edu.cn, or François Avellan, Francois.Avellan@epfl.ch.


Manuscript Preparation:

Detailed instructions on manuscript preparation are listed below. The editor reserves the right to return manuscripts that do not conform to the instructions for manuscript preparation, as well as paper that do not fit the scope of the journal, prior to refereeing. The manuscript should be prepared on the template which can be downloaded from here:


General:
The manuscript should be submitted in a pdf file. Although we set no strict maximum number of pages, it is recommended to summarize the content within 12 pages in the single column format presented in the TEMPLATE. Colored figures can be included but it is recommended to set the file size to be 1MB/10pages with the maximum of 3MB/10pages, considering the time required to download the paper. Be sure to embed in the file all the fonts used in the manuscript and to make the manuscript readable with Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0.

Layout:
Place figures and tables where they are referred to for the first time in the main text. If possible, consult a recent issue of the journal to become familiar with layout and conventions. Use 1.5 spacing and 10 or 12 pt font size and standard fonts. Number all pages consecutively.

Elements of a Paper:
The basic elements of a paper are title, author names and affiliations, abstract and keywords, body of paper, acknowledgments, nomenclature, appendices, references, which should be presented in the order suggested. The figures and tables should be placed where they are referred to for the first time in the body of the paper.

Title:
The title of the paper should be concise and definitive.

Author Names and Affiliations:
Author name should consist of first name (or initial), middle initial, and last name. Ensure that email addresses in addition to full postal addresses must be given for all co-authors. It is recommended that the email address be not linked.

Abstract and Keywords:
The aims, scope and conclusions of the paper must be summarized with 60-120 words, in a self-contained abstract of a single paragraph. The abstract must be informative and not just indicative and contain a summary of the significant results reported in the paper. No references should be cited. Avoid mathematical expressions as far as possible. Just below the abstract, up to six keywords should be provided.

Body of Paper:
Originality: If the material has been published elsewhere and the paper does not include new understanding of the material or new idea, it cannot be accepted.

Reliability: The paper should not include any apparent errors in the main body of theory, equations, experiments and understanding of the results.

Usefulness and completeness: An IJFMS paper should clearly state its purpose of research or development to show its usefulness.

Expression and structure: The expressions and the structure should be clear and concise. The paper should present proper logics and discussions on the results obtained.

References: To show the originality of the paper, it should describe about the state of the art of the topics treated by acknowledging prior works.

Clear statement of assumptions: The assumptions on which the discussions of the content depend should be stated clearly at appropriate locations.

Grammar and English usage: The authors are responsible for the English used. If the English is judged not on acceptable level, it can be rejected.

Units: The international system of units (SI) should be used. If other quantities are mentioned, give their equivalent in SI.

Mathematics: Particular care should be exercised in identifying all symbols and in avoiding ambiguities. Equation numbers should appear in parenthesis and be numbered consecutively. All equation numbers must appear on the right-hand side of the equation. Equations can be referenced within the text as "eq. (1)." When the reference to an equation begins a sentence, the abbreviation "eq." should be spelled out, e.g., "Equation (1)."

Figures:
Figures should be clear and large enough so that all letters in the figures can be read easily. All figures should be placed where they appear first in the text and be numbered consecutively and have a proper caption. This number should be used when referring to the figure in text. Figure references should be included within the text in numerical order according to their order of appearance. Figures should be referenced within the text as "Fig. 1." When the reference to a figure begins a sentence, the abbreviation "Fig." should be spelled out, e.g., "Figure 1."

Tables:
All tables should be placed where they appear first in the text and be numbered consecutively and have a proper caption. This number should be used when referring to the table in text. Table references should be included within the text in numerical order according to their order of appearance.

References:
All publications cited in the text should be presented in a list of references following the text of the manuscript. . In the text, make references using a number in square brackets on the line (e.g. Kim and Park [1]) and the full reference should be given in a numerical list at the end of the text.

References should be styled and punctuated according to the following examples: journal article [1], book [2], thesis [3], report [4]; proceedings [5], and patent [6].
