- Manuscripts for the Journal of Rheology® must be submitted online through the journal’s PeerExpress online submission and peer review site: http://jor.peerx-press.org. Communication with the Editor and Editorial Assistant by electronic mail may be addressed to: JOR-EditorialOffice@aip.org. Address all other correspondence to Dave Baker, Journal Manager, AIP Publishing at email@example.com.
- Only submissions in the English language will be accepted for publication.
- A short abstract (maximum length 200 words) is required for all papers. The abstract should be a summary of the entire paper, not the conclusions alone, and it should precede the main body of the paper.
- The paper should be reasonably subdivided into sections and, if necessary, subsections.
- Authors are encouraged to use the International System of Units (SI Units) and their standard abbreviations where possible. The notation should conform to the official standards of The Society of Rheology as adopted in 1984. The most recent version was published in Vol. 57(4), pages 1047-1055 (2013). The text is also available on The Society of Rheology page at http://www.rheology.org/sor.
- References should be cited in the text, using the name of the first author or two, and the year of the publication. For example: “Prior work by MacMillan (1989), by Edwards and Beris (1989), and by Kalika and co-workers (1989)...” Both authors are cited when there are two and the phrases “and co-workers” or “et al.” are employed to cite a publication having more than two authors. The references are compiled at the end of the manuscript with a complete listing of all authors for each paper. Each citation is listed in alphabetical order by the lead author's last name, followed by the title of the paper or book cited, journal name, volume number, complete pagination, and year of the reference given.
As an example we may cite:
Edwards, B. J. and A. N. Beris, "Order parameter representation of spatial inhomogeneities in polymeric liquid crystals," J. Rheol. 33, 1189-1193 (1989).
- Please supply numbers and titles for all tables. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. Tables are to be included within the body of the manuscript. Please do not upload separate table files.
- Illustrations published in the journal are received electronically from the author, and integrated with the text of the article, creating completely electronic pages. Adherence to electronic submission instructions is crucial. Detailed instructions for submitting electronic graphics to AIP Publishing and a glossary of terms may be found at http://publishing.aip.org/authors/preparing-graphics. Please adhere to these guidelines when preparing your illustrations for submission.
- Please supply captions for all figures and compile these on a separate sheet at the end of the manuscript. Please do not upload a separate file with the captions.
- All mathematical and chemical symbols, equations, and formulas must be typed. The symbols used must conform to the Society's Official Nomenclature whenever possible.

- This journal does not assess page charges and provides 25 free reprints. Additional reprints, if desired, may be purchased when galley proofs of manuscripts are received.
- The Journal of Rheology® requests that a signed copyright transfer form, assigning copyright to The Society of Rheology, be completed at the time of submission. It is a tradition of long standing that submission to The Journal of Rheology® implies that the work has been neither copyrighted, classified, published, nor is being considered for publication elsewhere. Since a copyright transfer form is required before publication, supplying it initially can prevent unnecessary delays. You may complete the Electronic Transfer of Copyright form during the submission of your paper. The Society of Rheology requires its form executed prior to publication.
- Through Author Select, The Journal of Rheology offers authors the option to choose open access for their published articles. By supporting both publication and archiving costs through payment of a USD 2,500 fee, authors may instruct the journal to provide free online access to the published article, in perpetuity, to any online user. In addition, authors will retain copyright to their articles, which will be published under a Creative Commons (CC-BY) license. (Use of the CC-BY license for Author Select articles applies for all papers after April 1, 2013.)
The Editor(s) and reviewers are not informed of an author's choice concerning open access; thus, the author's decision in this regard will have no impact on any aspect of the peer review process or on an Editor's ultimate decision regarding publication. The peer review process will proceed normally regardless of the author's choice of conventional publication or open access publication.
