We are in the process of closing BMC Energy. You might wish to submit to the Discover Journal Series, a collection of fully open access journals committed to providing all authors a streamlined submission process, rapid review and publication, and a high level of author service at every stage.
This study highlights the potential and challenges for mass spectrometry-based enzyme screening in promoting biofuel research.
Call for papers
BMC Energy is welcoming submissions to its thematic series entitled 'Green Energy and Smart Systems', edited by Carl Beierkuhnlein, University of Bayreuth, Germany.
BMC Energy is welcoming submissions to cross journal collection entitled 'Sustainable Water Systems'.
BMC Energy is welcoming submissions to its thematic series entitled 'Advanced Biofuels for CO2 Mitigation', edited by Jo-Shu Chang, National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan.
Editor Dr Harriet Manning discusses the motivation behind the launch of the BMC Energy in this Research in Progress blog.
Data support service
Authors submitting to this journal can opt to use a new service that will make it easier to share research data.
Benefit from our free funding service
We offer a free open access support service to make it easier for you to discover and apply for article-processing charge (APC) funding.

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
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
