J. hydrocarb. mines environ.
Welcome to the online submission and
editorial system of the J.
hydrocarb. mines environ. res.
hydrocarb. mines environ. res. is an international
interdisciplinary journal devoted to all aspects of research related
to the subject. The journal publishes high quality, peer-reviewed
scientific papers containing new insights into any aspect of Fundamental
or Applied Sciences, mainly on petroleum, ore exploration and exploitation,
borehole imagery, process control and electrification, economy and
marketing of hydrocarbons, equipment and pipelines in hydrocarbons
industry, process engineering and environment, clean energies, environmental
research related to water table, atmospheric pollution, waste, etc.
It will be devoted primarily to research papers but short communications
relating to new developments of broad interest, reviews and book reviews
will also be included. Papers must have international appeal and should
present work of more than local significance.
But scientific papers on the regional geology of the African-Middle-East
areas, especially the search for natural resources, are also welcome:
(i) economic geology of mineral deposits, (ii) applied geophysics,
geochemistry in the search for fossil fuels and water as well as for
environmental investigations to protect aquifer, hydrocarbon or ore
sites from pollution.
The scope includes geodynamics, fluids, fluxes and reservoirs of mineral
and energy resources, surface processes such as weathering, erosion,
transport and deposition of sediments and resulting geomorphology;
and the response of the Earth to global climate change as viewed within
The journal also welcomes special issues dealing with "Geology
of Africa and Middle-East" local review articles written by experts,
bringing together the latest earth science information such as fundamental
and applied geology, geophysics to hydrocarbons, mines and environment.
Special issues related to the following topics are also welcome: Seismology,
Geomorphology, Geophysics, Geochemistry, Petrology, Sedimentology,
Volcanology, Geochronology, Metamorphic and Structural Geology, Hydrology,
Geodynamics, Remote Sensing, Geomodelling, Paleoenvironment, Archeology,
In addition to peer-reviewed scientific and technical research papers,
the J. hydrocarb. mines environ.
res. publishes the following:
Opinion Section: An “Opinion Section” is provided
for timely expression of views and ideas in the petroleum industry
and associated research centres. The objective is to produce a column
which addresses developments in an interesting and lively manner.
These submissions will be dealt with by the Editor-in-Chief and the
Publisher, reviewed for reasonableness and published as rapidly as
possible. The full text of these papers will also be available on
Case Histories: A case history
should integrate data from several disciplines to explain how a prospective
area was explored and/or developed. Ideally, this integrated story
would combine elements of geology, geophysics, petrophysics and reservoir
The objectives of a case history paper are to explain which data were
used to evaluate a prospect or reservoir system, the type of analysis
procedures that were employed, and the conclusions which were reached,
so that others can decide which type of data and which methodologies
would be most effective for evaluating the properties that they manage
Review Papers: A review paper
provides an overview of a specific topic which is of general interest
to a significant segment of the journal readership. The topic being
discussed can be a technology which has been practiced for a number
of years, or a new emerging technology which appears to offer great
promise. A review paper should be structured so that it informs and
educates those who have had little exposure to the subject matter
under discussion, rather than as a exposition to further the scientific
concepts of the subject. Examples of review papers could be a discussion
of crosswell seismic profiling (an emerging geophysical technology),
structured so that it informs reservoir engineers and development
geologists on the way in which crosswell technology can help them
evaluate reservoir systems, or an explanation of the current global
positioning (GPS) technology, to inform all geoscientists about methods
by which they can access and use GPS data in their respective disciplines.
Special Issues and Theme Papers:
On a regular basis, issues dedicated to a single topic will be
considered for inclusion in the journal. The material can either be
derived from a workshop or conference, or be collected on the initiative
of a Guest Editor. All proposals for special issues and theme papers
will be evaluated by the editorial team. Some papers might be received
as unsolicited manuscripts and will be held, with the author’s
consent, for the proper theme-related volume.
The J. hydrocarb. mines environ.
res. presents also short articles as "short
notes" revealing new research discoveries in Africa and Middle-East
as well, special research issues related to climate changes in arid,
semi-arid areas, including scientific proceedings of African and Middle-East
projects. The journal is affiliated both with Academic institutions
(University of Rennes 1 [France], Ivano-Frankivsk National Technical
University of Oil and Gas [Ukraine], University of Boumerdès
[Algeria], etc.) and Industrial institutions such as Oil and mining
companies (Schlumberger, Sonatrach, etc.).
Finally, we would like to make the J.
hydrocarb. mines environ. res. your prime source
