How to publish in this journal


The SAE International Journal of Fuels and Lubricants is a leading international scholarly journal providing reports of research with focus on fuels and lubricants in automotive engineering. The Journal aims to be the primary source of information for comprehensive and innovative research in the areas of fuels, lubricants, additives, and catalysts, by providing a peer-reviewed platform for academicians, scientists, and industrial researchers to present their work. The Journal reflects the transitions from the traditional to the cutting-edge realm of fuels and lubricants technology and traces such changes in the fields of: -fuel properties and effects -alternative and advanced fuels -lubricants -surface engineering and automotive tribology -additives -deposits -fuel, lubricant, and additive effects on engine performance, emissions, fuel economy, catalyst technology, and environmental implications Join the conversation about this journal

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.
