Energy Research Letters is a quarterly journal that aims to be a “letters” type journal covering all areas of energy, broadly defined. Research on energy issues have multiplied over the last decade and there is a need to publish cutting-edge ideas, preliminary findings and policy issues faster. Energy Research Letters therefore aims to disseminate new models, hypotheses, refinement of existing models/hypotheses, replications, and robustness tests on important models/findings rapidly. Papers that challenge existing literature are also welcomed. Papers that simply replicate what has already been done and known are not welcomed. Energy Research Letters aims to be multidisciplinary and welcomes papers from finance, economics, statistics/econometrics, marketing and management disciplines that examine energy issues.
All submissions should be less than 2,500 words all inclusive (tables, figures, and references). While the communication should be concise in the spirit of a letters type paper, the paper needs to contain academic rigor. Energy Research Letters is an open access journal and does not charge any submission or publication fees.
All submissions will be reviewed in the first instance by the Editor-in-Chief and if deemed suitable for Energy Research Letters, it will be assigned to reviewers. Energy Research Letters aims to have a quick turnover time of up to 8 weeks between the submission and final decision.
