Effects of heat and mass transfer on the two-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow of Maxwell fluid over a stretching surface are discussed. Stretching surface satisfies the convective boundary conditions. In addition, the analysis has been carried out in the presence of Joule heating, thermal radiation and thermophoresis. Governing partial differential equations are first reduced into the ordinary differential equations and then computed for the series solutions. Numerical values of local Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are presented and examined.
