Editorial policy

The  Journal of  Energy is a  scientific and professional journal that covers the areas of the energy sector.  The  Journal of  Energy publishes original scientific and professional articles with a wide area of interest, from specific technical problems to global analyses of processes in the energy sector. It covers a  very broad range of topics relating to the electricity industry and the energy sector in general in a  competitive and global environment.

Aims & Scope

The intention of the Journal of Energy is to become a scientific and professional forum where these problems will be critically and constructively elaborated and where adequate solutions will be offered. The  Journal of  Energy is especially interested in the following topics: the energy sector in general, electricity production technologies, renewable energy sources, and environmental protection; the use and development of energy equipment and systems; equipment maintenance; the electricity system operation in competitive market conditions; power system operation, protection, dynamics, and control; smart grids; energy economics; construction and design of electric power facilities and plants; information systems and telecommunications; reengineering of business processes; electricity trade and supply, customer relations, knowledge management, and training; European and regional energy legislation, initiatives and cooperation.

The views expressed in articles are the authors’ and not necessarily those of The Journal of Energy, HEP d.d., or HRO CIGRE.

The Journal of Energy is issued in the form of a digital web magazine for readers by the principle of a free approach. We encourage prospective authors to follow our guidelines before submitting manuscripts.

Preprint Policy
Journal of Energy (Energija) does not consider preprints as prior publication, which means that authors are allowed to present and discuss their findings on a non-commercial preprint server before submitting their work to the journal.

Withdrawal Requests
Withdrawal requests for an article are reviewed by the editorial board of the journal. To request the withdrawal of an article, the authors must send a letter signed by all authors stating their request and the reasons for withdrawal to the journal editor. The Editorial Board will then review the request and make a decision based on the reasons given by the authors. If the request is approved, the article will be withdrawn from the journal and the authors will be informed of the decision. It is important to note that authors should not submit their work to another journal for evaluation until the withdrawal request has been approved. This is to avoid potential conflicts of interest or duplicate publication.

Appeals and Complaint

The editorial board of the journal is responsible for handling objections and complaints in accordance with the guidelines and recommendations of COPE. If an author has an appeal or complaint, they should contact the editorial team directly to discuss their concerns. The editorial board will review the case and make a decision based on the COPE guidelines.

The Editor-in-Chief has the final authority on all appeals and complaints. In some cases, an ombudsperson may be appointed to resolve complaints that cannot be resolved internally. It is important to note that the journal follows a fair and transparent process for handling appeals and complaints in order to maintain the integrity of the scientific record.

Sex and Gender Equity

Journal of Energy (Energija) encourages authors to follow the ‘Sex and Gender Equity in Research – SAGER – guidelines’ when preparing their manuscripts to promote the inclusion of sex and gender considerations in research. Before submission, authors can consult EASE Guidelines for Authors and Translators to produce clear, concise and accurate manuscripts that are easy to understand and free of common errors and pitfalls.
