SAE International's scholarly journals welcome authors from industry, academia, and government to submit original research for potential journal publication. Authors are invited to submit review-ready manuscripts featuring a detailed description of the research (including methodology, assumptions, hardware, observations, analysis, and a comparison of results with prior work). Papers that are deemed appropriate will undergo a comprehensive SAE peer review for potential publication in the Journal.
SAE International Journal of Alternative Powertrains Aims & Scope:
The SAE International Journal of Alternative Powertrains is dedicated to providing a forum for scholarly publication of original research and review papers that address challenges and present opportunities in alternative and electric powertrains and propulsion technology.
The Journal strives to facilitate discussion between researchers, engineers, academic faculty and students, and industry practitioners working with systems as well as components, and the technological aspects and functions of powertrains and propulsion systems alternative to the traditional combination of internal combustion engine and mechanical transmission.
The editorial scope of the Journal will include all technical aspects of alternative propulsion technologies including but not limited to:
- Electric drives
- Electromobility systems
- Hybrid technology
- Battery and super-capacitor technology
- Power electronics
- Hydraulic drives
- Energy storage systems
- Fuel cell technology
- Charging and Smart Grid infrastructures
SAE's scholarly journals are currently running open Calls for Papers which are not subject to deadlines. Submissions will be evaluated throughout the year. Being published in SAE's scholarly journals can raise an author's profile in the automotive, aerospace, or commercial vehicles fields, while contributing to the industry's body of technical knowledge.
