Energy Efficiency covers wide-ranging topics related to energy efficiency, energy savings, energy consumption, energy sufficiency, and energy transition in all sectors across the globe. Coverage includes energy efficiency policies at all levels of governance enabling social, organizational, and economic factors of sufficient and efficient behavior and decisions; analysis and modeling of energy efficiency performance, measures, policies, outcomes, and impacts; energy management systems and energy services; the role of energy efficiency and demand-side management in energy planning, energy markets and risk assessment; local sustainable energy planning; energy behavior; acceptability of policy, technology, and new energy systems; and emerging technologies and approaches to improve energy efficiency. Energy Efficiency editors welcome new and original work that contributes to our knowledge of energy efficiency and energy savings and that offers broad implications for energy efficiency within the transition to a more sustainable energy system. Editors will only consider clearly written, broadly applicable and accessible submissions that contain a novel element, issue, approach, method or result and that inspire progress in actual energy efficiency gains and energy savings. Areas ofcurrent interest include • Evaluation and modeling of energy efficiency policies and demand-side management programs • Impact of energy efficiency economy-wide across diverse levels of governance • Contribution of energy efficiency to climate change mitigation goals • Co-benefits or multiple benefits of energy efficiency and energy savings, especially health benefits and productivity.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.
