Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

In general terms, “energies” can be defined as developments and applications with regard to energy supply, conversion, application, and storage.

In this Topical Collection on “State of the Art in Analysis of Energies”, we welcome original research and review articles on the development and application of analytical methods in this field.

Analysis of energies is a broad field and can range over all separation techniques and detection methods. However, theory and methodology aspects should focus on instrumentation and not on modeling or theories with regard to energy application. Impurity analysis and especially identification/quantification of compounds are of particular interest. Reports on quality control and standardization of energy products or materials will also be considered on the basis of their significance in the field.

In all cases, novelty will be the major suitability criterion of submitted articles. Authors should always address the novelty of their proposed methodology and comparison with previously reported methods.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the collection website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Separations is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
