International Journal of Energy Production and Management (IJEPM) is an international, scholarly and peer-reviewed journal dedicated to addressing the challenges and opportunities of energy production and management in modern societies. The journal aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and practitioners from around the world to share their knowledge and ideas on a wide range of topics related to the future of energy production and management in a changing world.

The scope of the journal covers all aspects of energy research, development and recovery from primary and renewable sources, power generation, storage and distribution, planning and management. It also deals with the comparison of conventional energy sources, particularly hydrocarbons, with a number of alternative ways of producing energy based on renewable resources such as solar, hydro, wind, geothermal, and by applying new technologies.

In addition, the journal welcomes papers on energy use, including industrial processes, embedded energy contents of materials, requirements in transportation, ICT, and all other energy-related activities. The transition from an economy mainly based on hydrocarbons to one taking advantage of sustainable energy resources requires considerable scientific research and the development of advanced engineering systems. Such progress demands close collaboration between different disciplines in order to arrive at optimum solutions. IJEPM aims to facilitate this collaboration and encourage the exchange of ideas and solutions to achieve sustainable energy production and management.

Peer Review Process

The IIETA adopts a double blind review process. Once submitted, a paper dealing with suitable topics will be sent to the editor-in-chief or other members of the editorial board, and then be reviewed by at least two experts in the relevant field. The reviewers are either members of our editorial board or special external experts invited by the journal. In light of the reviewers’ comments, the editor-in-chief or other members of the editorial board will make the final decision over the publication, and return the decision to the author.

There are four possible decisions concerning the paper: acceptance, minor revision, major revision and rejection. Acceptances means the paper will be published directly without any revision. Minor revision means the author should make minor changes to the manuscript according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or other members of the editorial board. Major revision means the author should modify the manuscript significantly according to reviewers’ comments and submit the revised version to the IIETA. The revised version will be accepted or rejected at the discretion of the editor-in-chief or other members of the editorial board. Rejection means the submitted paper will not be published.

If a paper is accepted, the editor-in-chief or managing editor will send an acceptance letter to the author, and ask the author to prepare the paper in MS Word using the template of IIETA. 

Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is committed when one author uses another work without permission, credit, or acknowledgment. Plagiarism takes different forms, from literal copying to paraphrasing the work of another. The IIETA uses iThenticate to screen for unoriginal material. Authors submitting to an IIETA journal should be aware that their paper may be submitted to CrossRef at any point during the peer-review or production process. Any allegations of plagiarism made to a journal will be investigated by the editor-in-chief or managing editor. If the allegations appear to be founded, we will request all named authors of the paper to give an explanation of the overlapping material. If the explanation is not satisfactory, we will reject the submission, and may also reject future submissions.
