Progress in Energy and Combustion Science (PECS) publishes review articles on all aspects of energy and combustion science, providing a comprehensive in-depth overview of a particular topic. Occasionally, PECS solicits short Perspectives to highlight recent successes, current developments, and future research needs in energy and combustion science. While PECS spans the broad field of energy science, it focuses particularly on the fields of combustion and fuel science. Combustion has played an important role in the world's energy systems and will continue to do so in years to come. As time passes, technological demands evolve and change. For instance, the challenges we face today include conservation of energy, addressing the problem of global climate change, and environmental concerns, and together these require more efficient and cleaner combustion. Beyond energy, combustion plays an important role in process technology and materials science. PECS publishes reviews on all such topics, including concepts, methodologies, processes, and technology.

Reviews and Perspectives are by invitation of the editors only. If you have a suggestion for a review article, please do not submit your article directly, but rather first submit a one-page summary to the appropriate editor, depending on your region, including the proposed title, an abstract, a table of contents or outline of the review as well as all authors’ CVs and a list of your most prominent articles in the field. If you are based in Europe, Middle East or South America please contact Christof Schulz. If you are based in North America, Asia Pacific or Africa please contact Hai Wang.
