First of all, on behalf of the editors and the publishing staff, let us wish you a happy and successful New Year 2013!
For our journal, the new year started with a positive message from Thomson Reuters:
After a lengthy evaluation process, Thomson Reuters has resumed coverage of our journal in their products Science Citation Index™ and Current Contents™. Our journal is now covered by all major databases. This is the result of a joint effort by all parties involved: authors, reviewers, editors. We want to thank you for making the relaunch of High Temperatures — High Pressures such a success.
As you may have noticed, we are presently updating our database. Many details in the user profiles might have changed, in particular e-mail addresses and reviewing interests. By keeping our database up to date we avoid mail delivery problems and unsuitable review requests. Your cooperation in this process is highly appreciated.
This year, there are three important thermophysics related conferences:
- 10th International Workshop on Subsecond Thermophysics (10 IWSSTP) to be held in Karlsruhe, Germany, from June 26 – June 28, 2013, http:// ec.europa.eu/dgs/jrc/index.cfm?id=6830
- 6th Workshop Quantitative Micro and Nano Thermal Imaging and Analysis (QMNTIA 2013), to be held in Reims, France, from July 10 – July 12, 2013, http://qmntia2013.univ-reims.fr
- 10th Asian Thermophysical Properties Conference (ATPC 2013), to be held in Jeju, Korea, from September 29 – October 3, 2013, http://www. atpc2013.org/
We are proud publishers of the proceedings of these conferences.
If you are planning a thermophysics related conference and look for a suitable journal for the publication of the proceedings, you may want to contact us in the early stages of planning. In addition, we also publish Special Issues on specific topics, like the first issue of this volume on new methods for measurements of mass transport properties at high temperatures. We believe that these Special Issues provide a valuable reference to the state-of-the-art in quickly developing fields.
