Journal of Fluid Science and Technology (JFST) is an international peer-reviewed Open Access journal that aims for contributing to the development of fluids engineering by publishing Regular Articles of basic and applied studies on flow physics and fluids engineering. JFST provides its global authors with full peer-review services to select original, innovative and important work by theoretical, experimental and numerical approaches.

 The editorial committee invites the submission of original papers of a broad range of topics spanning turbulent flows, multiphase flows, non-Newtonian fluid flows, functional fluid flows, bio-fluid flows, quantum and molecular flows, wave, flow acoustics, flow-induced vibration, free-surface flows, cavitation flows, fluid machinery, methods for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and experimental fluid dynamics (EFD).

 The editorial committee will make all efforts for promoting strictly fair and speedy review for submitted articles. All JFST papers will be available for free at the website of J-STAGE (, which is hosted by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST). Thus papers can be accessed worldwide by lead scientists and engineers. In addition, authors can express their results variedly by high-quality color drawings and pictures.

 JFST is an international journal published by the Fluids Engineering Division in the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers (JSME). JSME had been publishing Bulletin of the JSME (1958-1986) and JSME International Journal (1987-2006) by the continuous volume numbers. Considering the recent circumstances of the academic journals in the field of mechanical engineering, JSME reorganized the journal editorial system. Namely, JSME discontinued former International Journals and projected new publications from the divisions belonging to JSME. The Fluids Engineering Division acted quickly among all divisions and launched the premiere issue of JFST in January 2006.

Special issues we are going to publish are as follows:

ASME-JSME-KSME Joint Fluids Engineering Conference 2023

Vol.19, No.2 (April to June, 2024)
Submission starting date: July 15, 2023
Submission Deadline: October 16, 2023
Note: Please select a Section/Category "Special Issue of the ASME-JSME‐KSME Joint Fluids Engineering Conference 2023(AJK2023:JFST) " on Editorial Manager(

The Fluid Engineering Divisions (FED) of ASME, JSME and KSME will hold joint conference in Osaka, Japan. AJK FED has been held every four years: 2011 in Japan; 2015 in Korea; 2019 in USA. The 4th conference will be face-to-face style in Osaka from July 9 to 13, 2023. In this conference, approximately 500 presentations will be expected mainly from but not limited to AJK members. At the conference, only one-page abstract will be distributed to participants. So, the organizing committee is going to encourage speakers of high quality presentations to submit their latest achievements to Journal of Fluid Science and Technology (JFST). Note that papers to be submitted to this special issue are limited to the titles presented at AJKFED2023 (minor modifications are allowed) by one of the coauthors.

Journal of Fluid Science and Technology (ICFD2023)

Vol.19 No.3 or 4 (July, 2024)
Submission starting date: November 9, 2023
Submission Deadline: March 1, 2024 March 18, 2024
Note: Please select a Section/Category "Recent Advances in Flow Dynamics 2023(JFST) " on Editorial Manager(

The Twentieth International Conference on Flow Dynamics (ICFD2023), in the annual series hosted by the Institute of Fluid Science, Tohoku University, will be held on November 6 - 8 in 2023. The objectives of this conference are to explore new horizons in science by discussing and exchanging information related to the most advanced scientific fields and to cutting edge technologies in Flow Dynamics. The ICFD is now recognized by researchers, engineers and academicians around the world as one of the biggest and the most important international conferences in the field of Flow Dynamics. This conference is composed of 3 Plenary Lectures, 1 General Session, 24 Organized Sessions (ex: “Flow Dynamics and Combustion Technology of Hybrid Rocket Propulsion” session, “Supercritical Fluid” session and “Student Session” etc..). The number of presentations and participations are more than 400 and 500, respectively. Selected papers are to be published as the special issues of “Journal of Fluid Science and Technology”. The selection will be based on the recommendation of editorial board and around 15 excellent papers will be made a careful selection from 150 papers which are associated with Fluid Dynamics.
