Publication of your presented paper:
Following ECTP21st, authors of all papers are encouraged to submit their contribution for publication in special proceeding issues of the following mainstream journals:
International Journal of Thermophysics
High Temperatures - High Pressures
Journal of Chemical and Engineering Data

It is up to the authors, to choose to which journal they want to submit their contribution. However, in order to have coherent and consistent special issues, the Organizing Committee will advise the authors that some specific sessions ask authors to submit preferably to one or the other journal with respect to the upcoming program.
When sending your manuscript to a journal please mention that it has been presented at ECTP21st, as agreed with the respective journal editors. The manuscript will undergo the normal peer review and this process is quite separate from presenting your paper at ECTP21st. It is the author's responsibility to submit his or her manuscript directly to the journal and this can be done as soon as possible after the conference and no later than 15th October 2017. When submitting your manuscript please ensure that:
The subject matter is within the scope of the respective journal and that the manuscript contains a sufficient amount of new (unpublished) results. Make sure to comply with the style of the journal to which you submit your manuscript. The guide for authors for the respective journals is obtainable from the following websites:

International Journal of Thermophysics
High Temperatures - High Pressures
Journal of Chemical and Engineering Data
