    Aims and Scope


    BioEnergy Research fills a void in the rapidly growing area of feedstock biology research related to biomass, biofuels, and bioenergy. It brings together a unique and broad combination of disciplines that all share a common focus on feedstock biology and science, related, in some way, to biomass, biofeedstock, and bioenergy production. The journal publishes a wide range of articles, including peer-reviewed scientific research, reviews, perspectives and commentary, industry news, and government policy updates.
