International Journal of Low-Carbon Technologies – Open Access

I am delighted to announce that from January 2014 International Journal of Low-Carbon Technologies (IJLCT) will become a fully open access journal.

Since the journal’s launch in 2006, IJLCT has established itself as a forum for important research concerned with the application of technology to the challenges created by climate change. The principal areas of research covered in the journal include: CO2 reduction and low-carbon technologies, renewable energy technologies, renewable energy management, and environmental impact and sustainable energy technologies in the built environment.

The mission of International Journal of Low-Carbon Technologies makes it an ideal candidate to develop further as an open access journal. In its new incarnation the journal aims to facilitate the widest possible dissemination of high-quality research to maximise its impact and contribution to furthering environmentally sustainable development in both developed and emerging industrial societies.

All articles published in IJLCT will be free to download, read and share; your work will be published under a Creative Commons Licence. Hence, as an author you will benefit from the widest possible exposure for your work. You can also rest assured that our exacting peer review standards will ensure your work appears alongside the very best papers in the field.

IJLCT is now inviting manuscript submissions to be published as open access.

For further information on publishing open access in IJLCT please visit the journal website and read the Instructions to Authors.

It is my firm belief that IJLCT’s transition to open access is the natural next step in the journal’s evolution following its launch in 2006. I thank you for your support and look forward to publishing your best work in the journal.
