Solid Fuel Chemistry is a journal that publishes articles on chemistry and physics of solid fuels, products and carbonaceous materials, their processing products, their technologies including distributions of trace elements, classifications of solid fuels, ecological problems of solid fuels processing, utilization their processing wastes, classifications of solid fuels and their processing wastes.
Solid Fuel Chemistry is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes 25 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 10 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 140 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 20%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.
Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
- This journal is indispensable for organic chemists, geochemists and chemical engineers working in the fundamental chemistry of solid fuels, and their processing and utilization; for specialists in fuel problems; and for environmentalists. Advanced knowledge on engineering fundamentals and processes is presented in such a form that it can be readily implemented into practical application.
