Combustion Theory and Modeling is a journal that is “devoted to the application of mathematical modeling, numerical simulation, and experimental techniques” that are specific to the study of combustion. It is published by Taylor and Francis and offers 6 issues each year. The journal is affiliated with The Combustion Institute and the AIAA Propellants and Combustion Technical Committee.
The Combustion Institute was founded in 1954 to promote and disseminate research activities that are specific to combustion science and technologies. It offers an international and educational society to members with non-profit structures to promote the advancement of combustion science to communities around the world.
Subscriptions begin at $426.00 per year for personal use. Institutional subscriptions begin at $983 per year. Affiliated members can receive discounts on their subscriptions by contacting the publisher directly.
The Aims and Scope of Combustion Theory and Modeling
The goal of Combustion Theory and Modeling is to “publish original research on a wide range of topics.” Papers are accepted if they cover laminar diffusion flames, fires, chemically-based kinetics, pollution formation, micro-gravity, thermal explosions, ignition, energetic materials, and miscellaneous types of flames, burners or engine combustion.
The journal also seeks to create and apply innovative applications to practical problems in the field of combustion science that may be complex. At the same time, the journal hopes to foster more interaction between the various modeling approaches that are used within the different topics and areas of combustion science.
The journal accepts numerous mathematical methods by authors supporting their research or theories that are proposed for publication. Hybrid computational schemes, front tracking, parallel computation, large-scale numerical simulation, and statistical methods are just a few of the common methods that are routinely accepted.
Every paper is required to go through a rigorous peer review before it will be accepted for publication by the journal. The current editors-in-chief for Combustion Theory and Modeling are Professor Moshe Matalon, with the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Professor Mitchell D. Smooke with the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Yale University.
The editorial board provides an international mix of contributors, including members from China, Europe, the United States, and the Middle East.
Instructions for Authors Who Wish to Submit Materials
If you would like to submit materials to Combustion Theory and Modeling to be considered for publication, then there are specific requirements that must be met for it to be accepted for peer review.
Taylor and Francis use ScholarOne Manuscripts for peer review. Before submitting a manuscript, the publisher highly recommends authors follow standard writing, editing, and formatting guidelines.
- Write a first draft of your proposed article and receive feedback from trusted associates regarding its content. Then refine the draft to include specific keywords and the required formatting asked for by the journal.
- Gather supplemental materials that may be required for an accurate peer review of the proposed article. Obtain any permissions for publication that may be required before submission.
- An editor from Combustion Theory and Modeling will then determine if the content matches the aims and scope of the journal. If it does, then it will be sent on for peer review.
At any time, if a submitted article is deemed to not meet the aims and scope of the journal, then it will be returned to the author.
There are some specific requirements that Combustion Theory and Modeling asks for submissions from a style, length, and formatting perspective.
- A word count must be included with the submission, with the typical manuscript being 12,000 words or less. Word count does not include references, tables, notes, or captions.
- Word and LaTeX standard formatting is accepted, but figures should be saved separately from the submitted text.
- Any references included within the manuscript must be properly formatted. Combustion Theory and Modeling utilizes Taylor and Francis Reference Style Q.
Open access publication is possible with this journal.
Why Choose Combustion Theory and Modeling?
Combustion Theory and Modeling is a niche journal that is specific to its field of science. Although there is a certain flexibility allowed for the subject matter and study types involved, the overall goal of the journal is to increase knowledge and awareness within the generalized field of combustion science.
Previously published content includes an examination of double-front detonations and the influence of gas compressibility during burning accidents within a mining passage.
