Petroleum Science is a peer-reviewed open access journal published under the brand SpringerOpen. It is a journal on petroleum science and technology in the English edition, and enjoys the assistance of the Science & Technology Department of CNPC and three research institutes under the three major oil corporations, CNPC, Sinopec and CNOOC.
Petroleum Science is the only English journal in China on petroleum science and technology that is intended for professionals engaged in petroleum science research and technical applications all over the world, as well as the managerial personnel of oil companies. It covers petroleum geology, petroleum geophysics, petroleum engineering, petrochemistry & chemical engineering, petroleum mechanics and economic management. It aims to introduce the latest results in oil industry research in China, promote cooperation in petroleum science research between China and the rest of the world, and build a bridge for scientific communication between China and the world.
The publication costs are covered by China University of Petroleum so authors do not need to pay an article-processing charge.
The journal operates a double-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers do not know the names or affiliations of the authors and the reviewer reports provided to the authors are anonymous.
