We will classify Rohlin flows on von Neumann algebras up to strong cocycle conjugacy. This result provides alternative approaches to some preceding results such as Kawahigashi’s classification of flows on the injective type II$_1$ factor, the classification of injective type III factors due to Connes, Krieger and Haagerup and the non-fullness of type III$_0$ factors. Several concrete examples are also studied.
