Heat and Mass Transfer Research is an enabler of information exchange among mechanical, chemical, biomedical, nuclear and aeronautical engineers, students and researchers concerned with heat and mass transfer, thermal power and fluid dynamics. Its focus is on the most recent original theoretical, experimental and analytical research in the heat and mass transfer arena. Subjects covered in Heat and Mass Transfer Research encompass the entire field of heat and mass transfer and relevant areas of fluid dynamics, including conduction, convection and radiation, phase change phenomena including boiling…etc.
Types of Manuscripts
Original research papers, reviews, short communications, letters to the editor.
Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language.
Submission to this journal can proceed online and you will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of your files at http://jhmtr.journals.semnan.ac.ir/ . Upon submission you will receive an e-mail with a reference number that you can use to check the status of your paper in JHMTR. After acceptance, corresponding author will be asked to submit source files which are needed for further processing.
The essential language of the manuscript is English.
The text should be prepared in double-column format onlywith MSWord2007. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible. Note figures, tables and text graphics should be embedded in the text(Please See also JHMTR Template file). To avoid unnecessary errors you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your wordprocessor.
Each paper should have the following subsections:
Title: Use the concise and informative title. Title should be as brief as possible. • Author Information. please indicate the family name clearly. Present the authors' affiliation addresses below the names. Provide the full postal address of each affiliation, including the country name and, the e-mail address of each author. Clearly indicate who will handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication. The name of the corresponding author should be specified with an asterisk after name (e.g., M.S. Valipour*).
Abstract: The abstract should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. All articles must have an abstract not to exceed 300 words. Avoid abbreviations, diagrams, and reference to the text.
Key Words: All articles should have a list of key terms for indexing purposes. Provide a maximum of 5 keywords.
Body Text: The article should be divided into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2 ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-referencing: do not just refer to 'the text'. Any subsection may be given a brief heading. Each heading should appear on its own separate line. The Text of the article must be concise and in a readily understandable style. The technical description of the methods used should only be given in detail when they are new.
All the equations should be clearly typed and consecutively numbered. All symbols used must be clearly defined. For articles containing more than a few symbols, include a nomenclature list in alphabetical order, with Greek symbols (also in alphabetical order and with a separate heading) following the alphabetical listing in English. The Nomenclature section should be placed after keywords and before the Introduction section. All articles must use SI units throughout.
Figures: Prepare figures so that they do not exceed the size of the journal pages. Text/symbols within the figure must be at least a size 9 point after rescaling to the final publication format. In general, for best results, figures must be submitted at the highest possible quality. Caption should be typed under each figure. Figures should be consecutively numbered. The author can submit color figures that will print in black and white, but will be in color online.
Tables:A short descriptive title should appear above each table with a clear legend and any footnotes suitably identified below. All units must be included.
Acknowledgements: Acknowledgements should be collected in a separate section at the end of the article before the references.
References: References should be listed in numerical order according to their order of appearance in the text. The references should be styled as follows:

Under no circumstance, articles received will not be returned to the authors. The publisher will not put any limitation on the personal freedom of the author to use the material contained in the paper in other works.
