How to publish in this journal


The SAE International Journal of Engines is a scholarly, peer-reviewed research Journal dedicated to internal combustion engine science and engineering. The Journal spotlights innovative and archival technical reports on all aspects of internal combustion engine development, including research, design, analysis, control, and emissions. Aiming to be the internationally recognized definitive source for researchers and engineers in the area of engine research and development, the Journal publishes only those technical articles that are deemed to have significant and long-term impact on engine development and design. Studies published in the Journal include, but are not limited to, the following subjects: engine combustion and emissions engine design and analysis engine durability and wear engine efficiency engine noise, vibration, and harshness.

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.
