Peer Review Policy

1. General information

CSEE Journal of Power and Energy Systems (CSEE JPES) are appreciative of all the peer-reviewers for their time, contribution and support. It is only by collaboration with our reviewers that editors can ensure that the manuscripts we publish are among the most important in their disciplines of scientific research.


The following types of contribution to CSEE JPES are peer-reviewed: Original research papers, Review articles and Rapid communications. The articles published in this journal will focus on advanced concepts, technologies, methodologies and practices associated with all aspects concerning power and energy systems. It aims to present the latest research achievements, which have significant impacts on the advancement of knowledge in the fields.


2. Criteria for publication

To be published in CSEE JPES, a paper should meet four general criteria:

  • Fitness of research field.
  • Innovation
  • Provides strong evidence for its conclusions.
  • Interesting to the readers in related disciplines


Fitness of research field

CSEE JPES mainly focus on the following topics: Power systems with the high penetration of renewable energy, Power systems including high proportion of power electronics equipment, Integrated energy systems and Electric equipment with advanced materials and technologies. For the detail of these topics, please check on it though the following address:


Also, if the paper belongs to an Special Issue, reviewers should check on the requirement of the topic of the certain Special Issue, the information of Special Issue are listed on CSEE JPES website:



Innovation is the basic characteristic of academic value. The criterion of "innovation" should include three levels: first, whether innovation is established; second, the degree of innovation; third, the value of innovation.
