Journal of Fluid Dynamics
GUIDELINES TO REVIEWERS
The principal motivation of the journal is to provide the means to display
colour visualisations and dynamic animations as part of a coherent Web-based
publication. This distinct journal is not intended as an addition to the
list of classical paper journals, although the following types of articles
are acceptable: full-length stand-alone articles, short communications
of topical interest, and articles that are a multimedia companion to papers
accepted in the traditional quality journals.
A publication in iJFD, using the unique power of computer imagery, can
be powerfully cross-referenced from allied pieces of work published in
the excellent established paper journals such as Journal of Fluid Mechanics,
Physics of Fluids, etc.
The iJFD seeks to provide
High quality research articles
on fundamental fluid flow processes
review by international referees
publication after acceptance
State-of-the-art display techniques
images (including 3D)
- dynamic visualisations
versions can be simply downloaded
An effective distribution system
and subscription are free and simply requires Web access
Reviewers are requested to respond to the following checklist in
addition to providing general comments. Reviewers' comments will be made
available in anonymity to the authors.
Is the article of interest to the wider community of fluid dynamicists?
Does the article contain significant new results or results presented in
a significantly new way (e.g., through movie simulation)?
Are the contents of the article accurate and is the accuracy discussed
or is a cross-reference made a companion article in a quality journal where
the rigour has been established?
Is the article succinct and clear? Is there scope for reduction in size?
Are the still figures clear and informative?
If movie images are included, are they clear and informative?
Is the title a clear and concise indication of the contents of the article?
