Aims and Scope
The SAE International Journal of Fuels and Lubricants is a leading international scholarly journal providing reports of research with focus on fuels and lubricants in automotive engineering. The Journal aims to be the primary source of information for comprehensive and innovative research in the areas of fuels, lubricants, additives, and catalysts, by providing a peer-reviewed platform for academicians, scientists, and industrial researchers to present their work. The Journal reflects the transitions from the traditional to the cutting-edge realm of fuels and lubricants technology and traces such changes in the fields of:
- fuel properties and effects
- alternative and advanced fuels
- surface engineering and automotive tribology
- fuel, lubricant, and additive effects on engine performance, emissions, fuel economy, catalyst technology, and environmental implications.
