"On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat and Occupation"
Article: Online version; Pages: 1-8, Apr :: by Libb Thims
  • The 2005 article "On the Nature of the Human Chemical Bond" was left un-finished.  The predominate reason being that the view emerged that a complete analysis of topic would not fit on one web-page; the article, instead, seeded the impetus behind the writing of the the 2007 824-page, 2-volume textbook Human Chemistrya project that took 18-months and 14-days to complete.
  • The 2006-07 issues of the JHT were disrupted, to an extent, due to involvement of Libb Thims, the JHT's general editor, in the writing of the textbook Human Chemistry (published in September of 2007).

Other notes:

(a) Every article should have something to do with a thermodynamic aspect of human existence, i.e. the subject of human thermodynamics, or its subfields, psychodynamicseconomic thermodynamicssocial thermodynamicshistory thermodynamicspolitical thermodynamicsevolutionary thermodynamics, etc.
(b) Attempt to limit the use of information theory (or to refrain from this topic entirely)
(c) Articles on the topic of religious thermodynamics may not be accepted (unless it is scientific and rigorous, or of a historical discussion or critique nature, etc.).
(d) Send journal article submissions, attached to an emial, to Libb Thims (, with the acronym "JHT" in the subject line of the email.
(e) Send Libb Thims a heads-up personal message, via his Hmolpedia user account (Sadi-Carnot), in the case that Gmail blocks the submission.

Peer review process

As of Oct 2011, JHT articles (accepted for submission) are being processed in an open-review, wiki-style, pre-print method of peer review (see: main page). Accepted beta-stage submission articles that do not get: "filtered out" or "retracted", after going through the open peer review and clean process, get published in the JHT (as freely-readable PDFs), and thereafter into Google Scholar; the flow process of which is diagrammed below:
2013 :: JHT :: Vol. 9
A ten-member JHT review board was formerly established in 2012.
