Aims & Scope
ENERGY STUDIES REVIEW
Greetings from the Editor-in-Chief
As of Volume 15, issue 1, I am pleased to assume the position of Editor-in-Chief of Energy Studies Review. The Review is now housed at the DeGroote School of Business of McMaster University. In the past, the Review has served as a key vehicle for the analysis and discussion of important energy issues, both in Canada and world-wide. With a firm commitment to high quality, I will endeavour to maintain the rigour and standards of previous editors.
Of course the success of the Review will depend on more than me. In addition to relying on the Editorial Advisory Board for advice and direction, I have asked Pierre Olivier-Pineau, of HEC in Montreal, to be the Editor of the Forum Section. Ruth Sutherland is assuming the role of Managing Editor, and she is responsible for managing the review process of manuscripts, publicity, subscriptions, and preparation of the Review for press. And finally, the success of Energy Studies Review will invariably depend upon the contributions of you, the reader, and you, the contributors of papers.
While this particular issue is comprised exclusively of scientific articles, all articles are refereed by anonymous reviewers in the usual way.
Providing high quality and relevant information to academics, practitioners and analysts will continue to be a fundamental objective. The Energy Studies Review will continue to serve as an interdisciplinary journal, publishing papers on major themes including energy policy, energy and the environment, energy technology, social impacts of energy utilization, and surveys of experimental and theoretical approaches. The perspective is intended to be broad and policy related energy papers are particularly welcome. While we anticipate that economics will continue to serve as a primary analytic tool, all methodological approaches – including engineering, geography, marketing, social sciences, and sciences – are most welcome.
