During recent decades, equations of state have become a major tool for
the correlation and prediction of thermodynamic properties of fluids.
Equations of state can be applied to pure substances as well as to mixtures,
and therefore a very large number of publications deal with the development
or improvement of equations of state. In order to give authors, editors,
and reviewers of publications on new equations of state some guidelines
and to ensure that future publications will more profitable for the
reader, some criteria for pure fluids are given that ought to be fulfilled
by a good manuscript. The are three major objectives that should be
dealt with in a publication on equations of state:
- The publication should constitute an advancement in concept or in
quantitative performance. The latter should be demonstrated.
- The publication should enable readers to decide whether they want
to use it or not.
- The publications should help readers to program and use the equation
