Thermodynamics journals

In journals, thermodynamics journals are semi-annual periodicals dealing with matters and subjects of interest specific to thermodynamics and its connected topics. [1] Some of these thermodynamics are tabulated below, ordered by date of inception, categorized by its human thermodynamics (HT) article content:


1969Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics (link)

To disseminate significant new measurements in experimental thermodynamics and thermophysics including calorimetry, phase equilibria, equilibrium thermodynamic properties, transport properties; and to publish high-quality work related to gases, liquids, solids, mixtures, solutions, interfaces, polymers, bio-thermodynamics, and biological materials provided that the systems studied are characterized and reproducible. Elsevier (0021-9614)
JCT 95w133h
1976Journal of Thermal Biology (link)

Publishes work in which the central theme is the mechanisms by which temperature affects living organisms. Pergamon (0306-4565).
JTB 95w127h
1989 Continuum Mechanics and Thermodynamics (link)

For new ideas in continuum and quasi-continuum modeling of systems with a large number of degrees of freedom and sufficient complexity to require thermodynamic closure. Subjects: physics and astronomy, engineering, chemistry and materials science, theoretical and applied mechanics, engineering thermodynamics, transport phenomena, mechanics, fluids, thermodynamics and structural materials. Springer (0935-1175 (Print) 1432-0959 (Online)).
CMT (94w125h)
1998International Journal of Thermodynamics (link)

A reference for thermodynamics with emphasis on the dissemination of technical information of permanent interest as it relates to theory, current applications and proposed improvements in industry
IJT 95w111h
1999Journal of Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics

Topics in nonequilibrium thermodynamics.
JNT 95w123h

On entropy and information studies, publishes reviews, regular research papers and short notes; with focus on theoretical and experimental details. Topics: entropy, information concepts, second law, information theory, system theory, cybernetics, AI, complexity, self-organization, chaos, reversibility, application of entropy to natural and social science, etc. MDPI (1099-4300).$900Entropy (95w124h)
2003 Interdisciplinary Description of Complex Systems (link)

Devoted to quantification and understanding of human societies and other complex systems, including aspects of our environment.

Articles in human thermodynamics, or the related. Topics: economic thermodynamics, sociological thermodynamics, psychological thermodynamics, anthropological thermodynamics, political thermodynamics, philosophical thermodynamics, etc. Articles on information theory and religion are discouraged.FreeJHT 95w
2005Thermodynamics Research Today (link)a free monthly online-journal that collates and summarizes the latest research about thermodynamics, including details on enthalpy, entropy, and energy transductions.
