Journal of Fluid Mechanics is the leading international journal in the field and is essential reading for all those concerned with developments in fluid mechanics. It publishes authoritative articles covering theoretical, computational and experimental investigations of all aspects of the mechanics of fluids. Each issue contains papers on the fundamental aspects of fluid mechanics and its applications to other fields such as aeronautics, astrophysics, biology, chemical and mechanical engineering, hydraulics, materials, meteorology, oceanography, geology, acoustics and combustion. Every paper must present fully developed and supported primary research and is expected to have a clear conclusion that spells out the contributions made to the advancement of fluid-mechanical understanding. 

A paper is only accepted for publication in JFM after careful and thorough review identifying that it is of the highest standard in terms of scientific content and clarity of exposition. 

Papers submitted for publication can be one of two types; Standard or Rapids. Please read the instructions carefully if you would like your paper to be considered for JFM Rapids.
