Aims and Scope
Physics of Fluids (PoF) is a preeminent journal devoted to publishing original theoretical, computational, and experimental contributions to the understanding of the dynamics of gases, liquids, and complex or multiphase fluids. Topics published in PoF are diverse and reflect the most important subjects in fluid dynamics, including, but not limited to:

-Acoustics
-Aerospace and aeronautical flow
-Astrophysical flow
-Biofluid mechanics
-Cavitation and cavitating flows
-Combustion flows
-Complex fluids
-Compressible flow
-Computational fluid dynamics
-Contact lines
-Continuum mechanics
-Convection
-Cryogenic flow
-Droplets
-Electrical and magnetic effects in fluid flow
-Foam, bubble, and film mechanics
-Flow control
-Flow instability and transition
-Flow orientation and anisotropy
-Flows with other transport phenomena
-Flows with complex boundary conditions
-Flow visualization
-Fluid mechanics
-Fluid physical properties
-Fluid–structure interactions
-Free surface flows
-Geophysical flow
-Interfacial flow
-Knudsen flow
-Laminar flow
-Liquid crystals

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
Submit an experimental work. The speed of the review is absolutely top-notch, with feedback provided within 20 days of submission. Two reviewers provided 7 comments, one of which was particularly excellent. It took about 10 days to enhance the theoretical analysis, and it feels like it significantly improved the quality of the paper.

We always try to reply to the reviewers' comments directly and resolve any issues. We rarely beat around the bush or push back on the comments. If the reviewers' comments are not major issues, we try to accommodate them as much as possible. Therefore, after replying, the associate editor surprisingly did not send it back to the reviewers, but accepted it directly. This is the first time I have encountered this.

From submission to acceptance, it took a total of 33 days. It was my first time submitting to PoF, and the experience was really great. The review process was very clear and transparent. However, in comparison, the process was much more pleasant than JFM's submission process. I will definitely continue to try it for future work.
