SEJ Impact Factor Rises to 7.188

ISES is proud to announce the Solar Energy Journal Impact Factor has increased to 7.188 - a great success of the editorial team led by Editor-in-Chief Ranga Pitchumani and of course all authors! With this Impact Factor, the Solar Energy Journal ranks 37 out of 119 in the Energy & Fuels section of all Elsevier Publications.

About the Journal:

Established in 1957, Solar Energy, the official journal of the International Solar Energy Society is devoted exclusively to the science and technology of solar energy applications. With participation encompassing 100 countries, ISES serves as a center for information on research and development in solar energy utilization. Through its publications and its sponsorship of technical conferences, the Society provides a world forum for the active consideration of solar energy. Solar Energy welcomes manuscripts presenting information on any aspect of solar energy measurement, research, development, application, or policy.

Solar Energy welcomes manuscripts presenting information not previously published in journals on any aspect of solar energy research, development, application, measurement or policy. The term "solar energy" in this context includes the indirect uses such as wind energy and biomass. Because of the international character of Solar Energy, articles that deal solely with the solar radiation or wind data base of a specific country are not normally considered suitable for Solar Energy. Submitted manuscripts may take the form of reports of original studies or reviews of significant prior work in a given area. All manuscripts are subject to reviews to assure accuracy, clarity, and long-term value.
