Publish your article in the IJR
Do you have something innovative to say about refrigeration? Have you always wanted to write an article but did not know what steps to take? Or, are you an already established author of many refrigeration related articles?
If this sounds like you, here is your opportunity to find out how you can publish an article in the IIR International Journal of Refrigeration (IJR).
Prepare your article
A good abstract is essential. Make sure that your abstract clearly and concisely explains what is new in your paper and why that is important.
By connecting to the IJR section on the Elsevier website at www.journals.elsevier.com you can consult the “Guide for Authors” online or download an “Authors Information Pack”.
Both provide the information needed to prepare your paper.
Optimizing your article for search engines - Search Engine Optimization (SEO) – helps to ensure it appears in the results returned by search engines such as Google. This helps attract more readers, gain higher visibility in the academic community and potentially increase citations.
Below are a few SEO guidelines:
- Use keywords, especially in the title and abstract.
- Add titles or subheadings (with keywords) to different sections of your article.
- Add captions with keywords to all photographs, images, graphs and tables.
For more information on SEO, check out the Elsevier Publishing Campus.
Once you have prepared your paper, you’ll be able to submit and track it online.
Added impact with visuals
By using content innovation, your work will be even more powerful and will make your article stand out. You can enhance your article’s value for readers by taking advantage of such features as: AudioSlides, GraphicalAbstracts, Virtual Microscope, Interactive MapViewer and 3D Molecular Models.

Your Paper Your Way
Elsevier now differentiates between the requirements for new and revised submissions. You may choose to submit your manuscript as a single Word or PDF file to be used in the refereeing process.
Only when your paper is at the revision stage, will you be requested to put your paper in to the appropriate format for acceptance and provide the items required for the publication of your article.
