The International Journal of Fluid Mechanics is a peer-reviewed journal. The IJFM invites original contributions, which have not been previously published in any language and are not being considered for publication elsewhere. All articles in the journal are published in English. Authors have to submit their papers to the Chief Editor by email only. To expedite the process, the cover letter of all contributions should include the author’s postal address, telephone number and email address. For co-authored papers the cover letter should designate a single author who is to be responsible for all future editorial communications.
