Author Guidelines
The Journal Scientific Petroleum invites contributions of three types:
  • original articles
  • state-of-the-art reviews
  • short communications
Contributions should fall within the scope of the journal outlined in the statement of Aim and Scope.
The term of the article reviewing takes from one to four months since the date of its submission to the Editorial Office. Articles are published in the order of their submission.
Articles that are found appropriate for publishing are placed in the Editorial Office portfolio for publication.
Publication Frequency
The journal is published two times in a year: in June and December. The publication schedule is strongly followed.
Preparing for Submission
Submitting a manuscript means that the paper has not been submitted to or published in the same or similar form in any other journal, in English or in any other language. Manuscripts that have been previously published in a workshop, symposium, or conference may be submitted for consideration, provided that the authors inform the editorial office at the time of submission and that the manuscripts have undergone substantial revision.
The articles are published in English. To shorten the review process of manuscripts originally written in Russian or Azerbaijani, we ask authors to send manuscripts in English together with Russian or Azerbaijani versions.
Only a concise and informative title should be included.
A manuscript must include an abstract containing no more than 150 words. It should indicate the techniques used and summarize the most important results.
Length of a Manuscript
The papers with up to 20 pages (excluding Endnotes and References) is appropriate. In some special cases defined by the Editor in-Chief the number of pages can be increased.
3 to 6 keywords should be provided after the abstract.
The text should be single-spaced; uses a 12-point font.
All figures should be cited in the text and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. A caption of no more than 15 words should be provided. To ensure compatibility with our review and proofreading systems, we suggest submitting electronic artwork files in one of our preferred formats. EPS, PS, JPEG, TIFF, Microsoft Word (DOC or DOCX only), or Microsoft Excel (XLS or XLSX only). All figures should be placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
All tables should be cited in the text and numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals. A title of no more than 15 words and a legend explaining any abbreviation used in that table should be provided. All tables should be placed within the text at the appropriate points, rather than at the end.
All URL addresses in the text (e.g., should be activated and ready to click.
Authors are required to obtain permission to reproduce previously copyrighted materials from other sources in both print and electronic form.
The references should be listed in the order of their appearance in the text and should only include works that have been cited and published or accepted for publication. Citations should be numbered in the order of their appearance, including those in figures and tables. Additionally, the list should include any new references related to the manuscript's topic.
