Announcing the launch of In Review

BMC Energy, in partnership with Research Square, is now offering In Review. Authors choosing this free optional service will be able to:

  • Share their work with fellow researchers to read, comment on, and cite even before publication
  • Showcase their work to funders and others with a citable DOI while it is still under review
  • Track their manuscript - including seeing when reviewers are invited, and when reports are received 

First articles published!

We are pleased to announce that BMC Energy has launched with its first published articles. The Editors outline the journal's aims and scope in detail in this Editorial that accompanies the launch.

Call for papers: Advanced Biofuels for CO2 Mitigation

New Content ItemBMC Energy welcomes submissions to the Thematic Series entitled "Advanced Biofuels for CO2 Mitigation". Oleaginous and carbohydrate-rich microalgae are considered to be a potential major biofuel producer in the future. Some microalgal species, when under stress conditions (such as nitrogen deprivation), are capable of consuming CO2 for the accumulation of high amounts of lipids or carbohydrates (mainly starch) in their cells. These photosynthetic microorganisms are, however, rather different from the microorganisms usually used in biotechnology.

Aims and scope

BMC Energy covers theory, development and applications in the interdisciplinary field of energy and fuel research from across the physical sciences, including engineering, physics, chemistry and the environmental sciences.


  • Low carbon energy generation
  • Bioenergy (biofuels, biomass and biogas)
  • Energy storage
  • Energy systems, processes, planning and policy
