Open Access Thermal Journals

A list of Open Access Thermal journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Thermal is column of rising air in the lower altitudes of Earth's atmosphere

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

This list of Thermal Open Access journals will hopefully make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Thermal manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Thermal journals that might be relevant to your field of study.In many cases, you only see lists of Thermal journals, nonetheless, in our case we have made the list with open access Thermal journals in mind.Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Thermal venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access is the free online access of research articles coupled with the rights to use and distribute these articles fully in the digital environment.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the level of association between a journal being listed and the concept it is listed under, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Physics Through Computation has a relevance of “100” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations demonstrate how frequently publications from this journal are cited in other papers. We obtain this information via OpenAlex. Although the accuracy is questionable, it might nevertheless aid you in gaining an understanding of how prestigious a publication is overall.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or journal article, you can type it in the name, title, or DOI in the search box above to see more results. If you want to see a similar list to this one, take a look on
