Ethical Standards 

The Editors-in-Chief of Experiments in Fluids attempt to maintain certain publication ethical standards in the submission and review procedure of manuscripts. This involves primarily three issues: plagiarism and copyright, correct declaration of authorship, and full disclosure. Ethical violations will lead to rejection of the manuscript from Experiments in Fluids at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.
Plagiarism refers to authors, who use ideas or text from another author or previous publications. This is considered a serious violation of ethical standards and will result in immediate withdrawal of a manuscript from the review procedure. If results are required from another author, the work should be appropriately cited and, should a figure from a previous publication be reproduced, copyright permission should first be obtained from the respective publisher. Some guidelines for this procedure are as follows:
  • Occasionally an author wishes to use a figure that has been previously published in a journal or book outside the Springer series. In the case of review articles, the author may use quite a number of such figures. For both of these cases, one should follow the proper protocol for securing permission.
  • First of all, as a matter of courtesy, the author should secure the personal permission of the author of the previously published work.
  • Then, the author should contact the publisher of the journal or book in which the figure(s) appears, and ask for a formal statement of permission to use that figure. Quite often, the publisher will require an appropriate wording to appear on the figure caption, which gives credit to the publisher, in addition to the usual citation of the previously published work.
  • Authors of all types of articles are responsible for securing these types of formal permissions.
All authors listed on a manuscript should have contributed significantly to the content of the manuscript. Omission of a contributing author is equally considered to be an ethical violation.
Please also see Springer's Policy on Publishing Integrity .
The Editors of Experiments in Fluids request all authors to practice full disclosure about the previous history of any submitted manuscript or parts of a manuscript. This comprises a statement about previous submissions to any journal and copies of the reviews and editorial correspondence. If a manuscript has been considered by another journal for publication, the authors should also include a clear statement about any revisions made to the manuscript since the last submission. Failure to provide this information will disqualify the manuscript for further consideration at Experiments in Fluids. If a substantial fraction of the submitted manuscript has been published in the proceedings of a conference, please disclose this and give the name and date of the conference. This does not preclude publication in Experiments in Fluids, it depends to what degree the conference proceedings have been reviewed and whether or not you have signed the copyright over to the conference organizer. Please feel free to contact the editors if you have an enquiry about a specific conference. If the manuscript is not currently, and has never been, under consideration for publication by another journal, then please state this.

Review Procedures 

The Editor-in-Chief retains complete responsibility to accept or reject a submitted manuscript to Experiments in Fluids. Nevertheless, this responsibility is usually delegated to the respective Associate Editor handling the review procedure.
The Editor-in-Chief, together with a second Editor-in-Chief or Associate Editor, examine all incoming manuscripts to determine whether they fit within the scope of the journal and that they will have a fair chance of eventual acceptance after review. This is done to reduce the amount of time spent by our authors, associate editors and reviewers. Manuscripts which are deemed unlikely to pass the review process are withdrawn from the review procedure, which has no negative implications for the authors.
Research Articles and Letters will normally be reviewed by two or more referees; the corresponding author receives copies of these reviews. On the basis of these reviews, the handling Editor chooses one of the following decisions: ‘accept as is’, ‘minor revision’, ‘major revision’ or ‘reject.’ Letter manuscripts requiring ‘major revision’ after the first review are subsequently handled as a ‘Research Article’. Manuscripts requiring ‘major revisions’ after the second review are normally rejected. Upon revision, all referees obtain a copy of all reviews for that manuscript and are asked to prepare a further review of the revised manuscript. If an Editor receives strongly conflicting reviews of a manuscript, a further referee may be consulted. Members of the Editorial Advisory Board are frequently consulted as adjudicators.

    Aims and Scope


    Experiments in Fluids examines the advancement, extension, and improvement of new techniques of flow measurement. The journal also publishes contributions that employ existing experimental techniques to gain an understanding of the underlying flow physics in the areas of turbulence, aerodynamics, hydrodynamics, convective heat transfer, combustion, turbomachinery, multi-phase flows, and chemical, biological and geological flows. In addition, readers will find papers that report on investigations combining experimental and analytical/numerical approaches.

    In addition to Research Articles, Experiments in Fluids publishes Letters and Review Articles. Please refer to the information on ‘Article Types'.
