SPE Peer-Reviewed Journals
Approved by technical experts, our peer-reviewed journals bring you technologies and solutions you can use and trust.
As of January 2014, SPE’s peer-reviewed journal content is available exclusively in digital format (exceptions: Journal of Canadian Petroleum Technology, Oil and Gas Facilities). Please review the FAQs for more information about this change.
SPE encourages authors to submit appropriate papers for peer review and publication in one of our journals. The topical coverage of SPE's journals is not as broad as SPE's meetings, so it is possible that none of the journals are suitable for your paper. Note: you may submit your paper to one journal only. Dual submissions will be rejected.
Comment on papers by writing a discussion
You can also comment on papers in our journals by writing a discussion. Discussions should be no more than one journal page, should pertain directly to the paper being discussed and may include one figure, table or equation. The executive editor will review the discussion and determine if it should be published. If so, the author will submit a formal reply. Our editorial staff will edit both the discussion and the author's reply and post them with the paper (with notification of the discussion) in the online journal's table of contents.
To submit a discussion:
Send the discussion, indicate the paper to which you are responding, and provide your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to: SPE Technical Publications, P.O. Box 833836, Richardson, TX 75083-3836.
