RE&PQJ ISSN: 2172-038X




The Renewable Energies & Power Quality Journal (RE&PQJ) is a open access electronic journal edited in Spain by the European Association for the Development of Renewable Energies, Environment and Power Quality, Reg.No. 169208, with the International Standard Serial Number (ISSN) 2172-038X and DOI (Digital Object Identifier).: (x=reference-numbers for each volume and paper)

The RE&PQJ is indexed by SCOPUS, owned by Elsevier B.V.

The main objective of the RE&PQJ is widespread over the world the recent development in the areas of Renewable Energies and Power Quality.

RE&PQJ publishes original, high-quality research papers previously presented in the "International Conference on Renewable Energy and Power Quality (ICREPQ)" and like most scientific journals, relies on effective peer review process (in this case a second peer review process because the first one is only for to accept the papers for the ICREPQ) to uphold not only the quality and validity of individual articles, but also the overall integrity of the journal we publish.
