ABSTRACT

The explosive growth in recent years, in the publication of both technical articles on enhanced heat and mass transfer as well as new journals in which they appear, has posed a pertinacious challenge to the task of compiling and reviewing the relevant literature. Manual searches by culling contents of journals, archival proceedings, and reports require an exorbitant amount of time and are becoming near impossible. Computerized search engines, while useful and evolving in sophistication, also have limitations based on their algorithms for targeted information filtering. To highlight some of these obstacles that require wider attention, the current status of the literature growth is evaluated, along with a discussion of the associated issues in collecting and categorizing them, and future needs for a dedicated digital library.
