Addressing the wide-ranging topic areas of energy generation, conversion and storage, the Journal disseminates technical information – peer-reviewed scholarly work, Research Papers, Technical Briefs, and feature articles – of permanent interest to the Journal’s readership. Emphasis is given to extraction of energy from subsurface natural resource, petroleum engineering, natural gas technology, fuel/waste/underground combustion, underground storage/disposal with injection wells, alternative energy sources, power (co-) generation, and (geo) thermal energy storage and conversion systems. Authors present results from R&D studies, experience with new technologies, overview analyses, and computing algorithms.
Published articles consider conventional and unconventional sources of energy, the relation between energy source and environment, and development of new clean energy technologies. The majority of papers published in the Journal present original scholarly work such as analytical, numerical, or experimental results and physical analysis of processes of lasting scientific value. A small number of published papers describe case histories, review of recent R&D advancements, or description of a methodology/industrial process. Discussion papers addressing policy or regulatory issues that affect energy resources also fall within the scope of the journal. Papers that do not include original work but nonetheless present quality analysis or incremental improvement to past work may be published as technical briefs.
