About Thermo


Thermo (ISSN 2673-7264) is a peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes original research papers, letters, reviews and Special Issues and topics in all areas dealing with experimental, theoretical and applied thermal sciences.

The main topics covered in the journal include all aspects of heat and temperature, encompassing the joint study of thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and kinetic theory. Other satellite topics dealing with thermophysics, solubility phenomena, chemical thermodynamics and chemical engineering are also very welcome. 

The journal aims to publish high-quality scientific papers that present ground-breaking and innovative results, as well as major achievements in the field of thermal physics. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible, explaining why there is no restriction on the length of the papers. Furthermore, papers dealing with good research practice: i) introducing theoretical or experimental methods or ii) dealing with equipment calibrations and measurement recommendations are also accepted to provide solid textbooks for undergraduate and postgraduate students.


Thermo studies the statistical nature of physical systems from an energetic perspective.

Some common subject areas include:

  • Heat and Temperature;
  • Thermodynamics;
  • Calorimeters and Calorimetry;
  • Thermal Properties of Matter;
  • Heat Transfer Methods: Radiation, Conduction and Convection;
  • Isolated Thermal Systems;
