How to publish in this journal



The objective of the Journal of Natural Gas Science & Engineering is to bridge the gap between the engineering and the science of natural gas by publishing explicitly written articles intelligible to scientists and engineers working in any field of natural gas science and engineering from the reservoir to the market. An attempt is made in all issues to balance the subject matter and to appeal to a broad readership. The Journal of Natural Gas Science & Engineering covers the fields of natural gas exploration, production, processing and transmission in its broadest possible sense. Topics include: origin and accumulation of natural gas; natural gas geochemistry; gas-reservoir engineering; well logging, testing and evaluation; mathematical modelling; enhanced gas recovery; thermodynamics and phase behaviour, gas-reservoir modelling and simulation; natural gas production engineering; primary and enhanced production from unconventional gas resources, subsurface issues related to coalbed methane, tight gas, shale gas, and hydrate production, formation evaluation; exploration methods, multiphase flow and flow assurance issues, novel processing (e.g., subsea) techniques, raw gas transmission methods, gas processing/LNG technologies, sales gas transmission and storage. The Journal of Natural Gas Science & Engineering will also focus on economical, environmental, management and safety issues related to natural gas production, processing and transportation.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

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.
