Aims and Scope

The International Journal of Energy Research is dedicated to providing a multidisciplinary platform for the discussion of issues arising in energy research without the constraints imposed by aiming at a restricted audience. It aims to reach all researchers, scientists, engineers, technology developers, planners and policy makers working in the areas of energy management, production, conversion, conservation, systems, technologies and applications, and their impact on the environment and sustainable development.

The subject matter of the Journal is concerned with the development and exploitation of both traditional and new energy sources, systems, technologies and applications. Interdisciplinary subjects in the area of novel energy systems and applications are also encouraged. High-quality research papers are solicited in, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Energy conversion, conservation and management

  • Energy storage

  • Hydrogen energy and fuel cells

  • Hydrogen production technologies

  • Micro- and nano-energy systems and technologies

  • Exergy analysis

  • Thermodynamic optimization

  • Electronics cooling

  • Nuclear energy

  • Renewable energy (e.g. geothermal, solar, wind, hydro, tidal wave, biomass)

  • Energy and sustainable development

  • Energy and environmental impact

  • CO2 capturing and storage technologies

  • Clean coal technologies

  • Biofuels and alternatives

  • Life cycle assessment

  • Hybrid/integrated energy systems

  • Heat pumps and heat pipes

  • Advanced power generation and refrigeration systems

  • Energy system analysis and modelling

Submitted manuscripts should report on original works in the area of novel energy systems and applications which may be expected to address current technical, technological, economic, environmental, performance, sustainability problems and bring potential solutions through improvements in efficiency, cost effectiveness, use of resources and sustainability, as well as improved energy security and improvements to the environment.

IJER publishes high-quality original papers, review articles and short communications in the area of novel energy systems and applications. Those pertaining to modeling, theory, analysis, simulations, technology development, experiments, visualization and measurement techniques are also appropriate for the journal. IJER will also include letters to the editor, book reviews, an events calendar etc.


Scientists, researchers, economists, energy planners, policy makers, and engineers who work and/or have interest in the area of novel energy systems and applications, in various disciplines ranging from mechanical to electrical engineering and from chemical to environmental engineering.
