The journal’s mission is to bring together thought, academic research and corporate practice in all areas of Petroleum Engineering in a reader-friendly format. The journal aims to publish high-quality peer–reviewed articles in the area of Petroleum Engineering. The research published in the journal is practically relevant, so the results are helpful for managers in leadership roles related to projects, programs, and portfolios. Therefore, the research’s theoretical and managerial implications need to be considered. In other words, the journal seeks excellent contributions to theory and practice and strongly values rigour and relevance.


The Editors reserve the right to reject article(s) without sending them out for review. Submitted articles must be within the scope of the journal. All submitted articles go through a double-anonymized peer review process. Articles for the regular issue can be submitted electronically throughout the year.
