The journal seeks to promote and disseminate knowledge of the various topics and technologies of renewable energy and therefore aimed at assisting researchers, economists, manufactures, world agencies and societies to keep abreast of new developments in their specialist fields and to unite in finding alternative energy solutions to current issues as the greenhouse effect and the depletion of the ozone layer.


The scope of the journal encompasses the following: Photovoltaic Technology Conversion, Solar Thermal Application, Biomass Conversion, Wind Energy Technology, Materials Science Technology, Solar and Low Energy Architecture, Energy Conservation in Buildings, Climatology (Geothermal, Wave and Tide, Ocean Thermal Energy, Mini Hydro Power and Hydrogen Production Technology), Socio-economic, Energy Management, Solar Cells, Photo thermal Devices, Photo electrochemical, Photochemical Devices, Bio and hydrogen energy.


IJRER accepts original research papers or any other original contribution in the form of reviews and report on new concepts. It promotes innovation, papers of a tutorial nature and a general exchange of news, views and new books on the above subjects.



The journal will accept following types of contribution:

  • Literature Review
  • Theoretical Work
  • Experimental Work
  • Technical Notes



Original paper, technical notes/letters published in all fields of renewable energy. Case studies and papers that describe original work applicable to engineering practice are particularly encouraged. Submissions must be previously unpublished and may not be under consideration elsewhere.



Papers will be published in English and written in third person



All papers submitted for possible publication will be reviewed by referees chosen because of their knowledge in the field concerned, experience in producing a balanced review, and ability to make a firm fair recommendation.



The manuscripts should be preceded by a separate cover sheet containing the title, names, affiliations and e-mail addresses of all authors, an abstract of the paper and maximum five key words. The abstract should not exceed 150 words and should be a summary of the entire paper. Manuscripts should be typed doubled-spaced and double column with wide (2.5cm) margins, on one side of the paper only. The body of the manuscript should be preceded by the title of the paper, which should be brief. The paper should be subdivided into appropriate sections and, if necessary, subsections. Mathematical and other symbols must be typewritten in word processing format. Author(s) must use the International System of Units for describing dimensional results in the text, figures and tables.



Submitting your illustrations, pictures, tables and other artwork (such as Multimedia- and Supplementary files) in an electronic format helps us to produce your work to the best possible standards, ensuring accuracy, clarity and a high level of detail. Photographs and illustrations submitted in electronic format should be at least 350dpi.



References to published literature should be listed in alphabetical order at the end of the paper in the following format:

Reference to a journal publication: Al-Asady, N.A., Abdullah, S., Ariffin, A.K., Beden, S.M., and Rahman, M.M. 2009. FEA Based Durability Using Strain-Life Models For Different Medium Carbon Steel As Fabrication Materials For An Automotive Component, International Journal of Mechanical and Materials Engineering  4 (2): 141-146.

Reference to a conference paper: MacGill, I., Outhred, H., Nolles, K. 2003. Market-based environmental regulation in the restructured Australian electricity industry, In: Proceedings of the 26th International IAEE Conference, Prague, June.

References to online resources should also be quoted with the organization’s name, authors' name, title and URL.



Copyright in published papers will be vested in the publisher. It is the authors' responsibility to obtain and submit all written permissions required, including permission to quote material which has appeared in another publication. Authors are required to sign and submit the completed "Copyright Transfer Form" upon acceptance of publication of the paper.



Correspondence and proofs for correction will be sent to the first-named author who will be the corresponding author of the paper, unless otherwise indicated. Corrected page proofs must be returned direct to the editor within three days. Corrections shall be limited to typographical errors; no new material may be inserted. Corresponding author is responsible for updating affiliations and contacts of all of the authors.


Papers may be up to 30 A4 pages long (double spacing with 12pt font size), including cover sheet, abstract, text, all images, figures and tables (no more than 2 images, figures and tables in one page), and all references.
