We are pleased to announce that starting in January 2019; International Journal of Alternative Fuels and Energy (IJAFE) will publish tri-annually; 3 three online issues (November–February, March–June, and July–October). This change will facilitate expanded discoverability of the contents via a quarterly table of contents, indexing, and other archival services in a timely manner. The journal works on open access policy and provides immediate open access to all content in order to make research freely available to the public, and ensure a global exchange of knowledge. Articles are published online immediately after acceptance in the upcoming issues of the journal.

IJAFE is committed to publishing selective and high quality content that is accessible to researchers from a broad spectrum of disciplines. Topics include all aspects of alternative energy sources and allied chemical and engineering sciences, biofuels, microbiology, environmental science, ecology, wind and solar energy, photovoltaics, tidal and wave energy, marine energy, geothermal energy, hydrogen energy, fuel cells, chemistry, allied engineering sciences, physics, agricultural engineering, biological and biosystem engineering, forestry engineering, materials engineering, water resource engineering, mineral and metallurgical engineering, engineering management, biomechanical engineering, engineering technology and nanotechnology, and more.

Over the last two years, the valued contributions from the authors and the volunteer participation of the many dedicated colleagues in the peer-review process have been vital to the beginning, continuing strength and success of International Journal of Alternative Fuels and Energy. We sincerely appreciate all your contributions and look forward to your continued enthusiasm and support in the coming years.
