Open Access Renewable energy Journals

A list of Open Access Renewable energy journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources

A journal article is 'open access' when there are no financial, legal or technical barriers to accessing it - that is to say when anyone can read, download, distribute, print, and search it.

Our team made this list of Renewable energy Open Access journals with the aim to help you to decide where to publish your Renewable energy manuscript.
We made this list which includes all the high-impact factor Renewable energy journals that might be relevant to your field of study.Rather than displaying just the most relevant Renewable energy journals, we have made an in-depth list of all the open accesss Renewable energy journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Renewable energy venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Renewable energy journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open access is an international movement that aims to provide free and open online access to academic information, such as publications and data
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
It refers to the strength of association between this journal being listed and the concept, from 0-100. For example, the Journal Of Research In Mechanical Engineering has a relevance of “0” when listed under “Open Access Computer Science Journals” because it has no relevance to the field of Computer Science.
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations represent the times that works have cited papers under this journal. In our case, we obtain this data from OpenAlex, an open catalog of scholarly papers. It's hard to say how accurate it is but it can give you a general idea on how prestigious the journal is. The more work that have cited it, the better.

What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, which means the paper is freely available and fully accessible to everyone, b) Hybrid Open Access, which means that the authors can pay an APC to make the paper freely available, or c) Green Open Access, which means that there is a possiblity to make subcription based journal articles freely avaiable by uploading the peer-reviewed article to an instiutional repository.
