Call for Special Issue

Special issue is an effective way to communicate current knowledge in a particular field to researchers working in the field and interested readers. Qualified scientists are encouraged to organize and edit special issues in their expertise areas with the journal.

Proposals for special issues are welcomed and the issues can be published as soon as final versions of manuscripts are received by the journal editorial office. A special issue may cover topics in any area of energy science.
Articles in the special issues may include reviews, research papers, communications and others which are deemed as appropriate by the editors. Conference organizers are welcome to publish the proceedings as special issues in the journal.

A proposal should include:
CV and list of publications of the guest editors; (the main guest editor can invite 2 co-editors to edit the special issue); A working title, an overview of the topics, aims and scope;
