Coal is one of the world’s most important fossil fuels, and it is vital to investigate its utilization in order to improve efficiency and to reduce the emission of some contaminants, which is a gloabl issue.
The International Conference on Coal Science and Technology (ICCS & T) aims to promote international communication and cooperation in the context of coal science, technology innovation and industrial development, thus advancing the world’s coal science and technology. The 2017 ICCS & T conference attracted a diverse international audience and focused on various aspects of energy science and engineering, particularly coal science and technology, bioenergy and biofuels, fuel cells, energy storage materials and related areas of interest.
The International Journal of Coal Science and Technology (JCST) published its first issue in Oct. 2014 in collaboration with the well-known publisher Springer. All of the papers published in this journal are peer-reviewed and can be accessed through open access. This will significantly increase the opportunity to be cited.
