Aims and Scope

Please submit your manuscript online at:

The Journal of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics serves as an international publication organ for new ideas, insights and results on non-equilibrium phenomena in science, engineering and related natural systems. The central aim of the journal is to provide a bridge between science and engineering and to promote scientific exchange on
     • newly observed non-equilibrium phenomena
     • analytic or numeric modeling for their interpretation
     • vanguard methods to describe non-equilibrium phenomena.
The journal addresses mechanical, chemical, and biochemical engineers, physicists, chemists and applied mathematicians, as well as computational scientists. Contributions should - among others - present novel approaches to analyzing, modeling and optimizing processes of engineering relevance such as transport processes of mass, momentum and energy, separation of fluid phases, reproduction of living cells, or energy conversion. The journal is particularly interested in contributions which add to the basic understanding of non-equilibrium phenomena in science and engineering, with systems of interest ranging from the macro to the nano level.
The journal publishes scholarly research papers, invited review articles, educational papers, short communications, and “comment-and-reply-notes” on papers already published.

Submission of Manuscripts

The Journal of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics has recently expanded its scope to place new emphasis on theoretical and experimental investigations of non-equilibrium phenomena in thermophysical, chemical, biochemical and abstract model systems of engineering relevance. We are therefore pleased to invite submissions which present newly observed non-equilibrium phenomena, analytic or fuzzy models for their interpretation, or new methods for their description. Topics of high priority are:

  • soft matter
  • biomolecular fluids
  • nano-fluids
  • fuzzy systems
  • soft computing models.

For more information on these (non-exclusive) topics, the reader is kindly invited to refer to the Editor's Note, Journal of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics 27 (2002), pp. 1–3.

Instructions for Authors

Public Repositories

Author wishes to include own article in an institutional repository or place own article on a departmental/personal website

The author's institute can offer access to the authors’ final, accepted manuscript version of an article from its repository website. Likewise, authors are allowed to post their final, accepted manuscript version on their own personal or laboratory website. In both cases an embargo period of 12 months after online publication in the journal applies. Unless expressly permitted, authors may not post the publisher's version on their own website. However, it is possible to place a link to the published article PDF for purchase.

This permission is restricted to non-commercial institutions only; for the conditions regarding article placement on corporate websites, please contact

Inclusion of articles in a general repository

General repositories may include the abstract of the article in the repository and place a link to the publisher's version of the article for purchase.

NIH-funded authors: WdG acknowledges that the author of an NIH-funded article retains the right to provide a copy of the final, accepted manuscript document to NIH for archiving in PubMed Central 12 months after online publication in the journal. Note that only the accepted author’s version of the manuscript, not the PDF file of the published article, may be used for NIH archiving.

Institutional repository wishes to include articles which do not exist in electronic format

WdG allows institutional repositories to include a scanned version of their authors' journal articles as published in printed form. We request a link be placed to the journal’s homepage (

Author wishes to place a link to the abstract of an article

Authors may place as many links to the abstract as desired.

Author wishes to send electronic offprints (PDFs) to colleagues

Authors will receive an offprint of the publisher’s article version as PDF-document. Authors may send up to 30 copies of the PDF document as electronic offprint to colleagues. Any other form of distribution of the electronic offprint file requires written permission from the publisher.
