Current energy systems need a vast transformation to meet the key demands of the 21st century reduced environmental impact economic viability and efficiency. An essential part of this energy revolution is bioenergy.The movement towards widespread implementation of first generation biofuels is still in its infancy requiring continued evaluation and improvement to be fully realised. Problems with current bioenergy strategies for example competition over land use for food crops do not yet have satisfactory solutions. The second generation of biofuels based around cellulosic ethanol are now in development and are opening up new possibilities for future energy generation. Recent advances in genetics have pioneered research into designer fuels and sources such as algae have been revealed as untapped bioenergy resources.As global energy requirements change and grow it is crucial that all aspects of the bioenergy production process are streamlined and improved from the design of more efficient biorefineries to research into biohydrogen as an energy carrier. Current energy infrastructures need to be adapted and changed to fulfil the promises of biomass for power generation.Biofuels provides a forum for all stakeholders in the bioenergy sector featuring review articles original research commentaries news research and development spotlights interviews with key opinion leaders and much more with a view to establishing an international community of bioenergy communication.As biofuel research continues at an unprecedented rate the development of new feedstocks and improvements in bioenergy production processes provide the key to the transformation of biomass into a global energy resource. With the twin threats of climate change and depleted fossil fuel reserves looming it is vitally important that research communities are mobilized to fully realize the potential of bioenergy.

SCR Journal Ranking

SCImago SJR Rank

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed. (Learn More)


The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
