Author Services – Online production tracking is now available for your article through Wiley-Blackwell's Author Services.
Author Services enables authors to track their article - once it has been accepted - through the production process to publication online and in print. Authors can check the status of their articles online and choose to receive automated emails at key stages of production. The author will receive an email with a unique link that enables them to register and have their article automatically added to the system. Please ensure that a complete email address is provided when submitting the manuscript.

Author Guidelines

Heat Transfer – Asian Research has been known, since 1972, for publishing English translations of theoretical and experimental papers drawn from all important journals in Japan, China, and Korea. From 2009, the journal is expanding its scope and welcomes original papers from all parts of Asia, including India and Middle East Asia.

Heat Transfer – Asian Research is an enabler of information exchange among mechanical, chemical, biomedical, nuclear and aeronautical engineers, students and researchers concerned with heat transfer, thermal power and fluid dynamics. Its focus is on the most recent original experimental and analytical Asian research in the heat transfer arena.

The journal deals with the entire field of heat and mass transfer and pertinent areas of fluid dynamics. Subjects include: convective, conductive, and radiative heat transfer; heat transfer enhancement; measurement of thermophysical properties; thermal component and system design and optimization; mathematical modeling; non-Newtonian fluids; heat transfer in emerging technologies such as Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS), micro-channels, fuel cell, bio- and nano-technology, biomedical engineering, tissue engineering, and bioheat transfer; multiphase heat transfer including condensation, boiling, air-conditioning, porous media, ice formation, and melting.



Manuscripts for submission to the journal (in English only) should be forwarded to the editor as follows:


1. Using your Internet browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), and go to the URL http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/htar

2. Register (if you have not done so already)

3. Download the Copyright Transfer Agreement (CTA) from www.wiley.com/go/ctaaus. Enter the relevant information and sign the form. Scan the signed form and submit this electronically with your article; your article will not undergo peer-review unless the CTA has been received

4. Go to the Author Center and follow the instructions to submit your manuscript. Please review that your submission has uploaded correctly before clicking the "Submit" button

5. On completion of a successful submission, a confirmation screen with manuscript number will appear and you will receive an email confirming that the manuscript has been received by the journal. If this does not happen, please check your submission and/or contact technical support at support@scholarone.com


For review purposes, the text of the article can be submitted in .doc, .rtf, or .ps format. Images can be in .jpg, .tif, .gif, or .pict format and should be submitted separate from the article. Because this Journal has an electronic workflow, if you are eventually asked for a revision, you will be asked to provide the source files for your text in .rtf or .doc format for production purposes.


Please avoid .pdf, .pds, .cd, .txt, and other proprietary image formats. Also, please note that the system will not accept executable files, encapsulated formats, or other potentially viral material formats, such as .exe, .com, .bat, .zip, or .sea.


To ensure the highest print quality, figure files must be submitted separate from the article text, with dpi (dots per inch) of 400 or higher for regular figures and 600 dpi for line art (simple bar graphs, charts, etc.).


Please also submit your tables separately. All files will be concatenated automatically into a single .pdf file by the system during upload. This is the file that will be used for review.


Authors for whom English is a second language may choose to have their manuscript professionally edited before submission or during the review process. Authors wishing to pursue a professional English-language editing service should make contact and arrange payment with the editing service of their choice. For more details regarding the recommended services, please refer to http://authorservices.wiley.com/bauthor/english_language.asp


Please scan your files for viruses before you send them, and keep a copy of what you send in a safe place in case any of the files need to be replaced.


After the manuscript is sent to the publisher, it will be copyedited and typeset. After being typeset, page proofs will be emailed in .pdf format to the designated corresponding author. Authors have 48 hours after receiving page proofs to return them with any corrections. Authors may be charged for alterations to the proofs beyond those needed to correct typesetting errors.


Types of manuscripts:Contributions of original full-length articles are considered for publication. All materials submitted will be acknowledged on receipt and subject to peer review. Copies of the referees’ comments will be forwarded to the author, along with the editor’s decision.

Permissions:It is the author’s responsibility to obtain written permission to reproduce material that has appeared in another publication. Contributors should refer to the current CTA for information regarding use of the Final Published Version of the article.

Only original articles that have not been published previously, that have not been submitted elsewhere, and that are not under review for another publication in any medium (e.g., printed journal, conference proceeding, electronic, or optical medium) should be submitted to Heat Transfer – Asian Research. The Heat Transfer – Asian Research editors will assume that submission of an article to this journal implies that all the foregoing conditions are applicable.


English translations of Asian research may continue to be published in Heat Transfer – Asian Research; these articles will continue to clearly state where the article was originally published.
