Aims and Scopes

Avestia Publishing has initiated the publication of the Journal of Biomass to Biofuel (JBB).

This journal is based on the continuous model in English and adopts the open-access model, meaning all interested audience have free access to the journal's homepage and articles with no need for subscription. This ensures larger audience and therefore higher citations.

Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.

All published papers of JBB will be submitted to Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, Open J-Gate, Mendeley, and Genomics JournalSeek for indexing. Additionally, JBB will also be permanently archived in Portico (one of the largest community-supported digital archives in the world) and each article will be assigned unique DOIs by CrossRef.

JBB is high quality peer-reviewed journal, where every article will be peer-reviewed by several experts in the field. Upon acceptance, articles will be published in the latest open volume. One continuous volume per year is published. JBB welcomes research and review papers related to Biomass and Biofuel including but not limited to the areas of:

  • Algal Biofuels
  • Aviation Biofuel
  • Bioalcohols (Bioethanol, Biobutanol, etc)
  • Biodiesel (Different Generations)
  • Bioethers (e.g. Octane Rating Enhancers)
  • Biogas (Biomethane and Biohydrogen)
  • Biomass Characterization Related to Biological Conversions
  • Biomass Recalcitrance to Biological Conversions
  • Bio-oil (e.g. By Pyrolysis)
  • Biorefinery Industries
  • Energy Production by Biomass Incineration
  • Pretreatment of Lignocelluloses for Biofuel Production
  • Syngas

All aspect and domains of application including:
fermentation; biochemical engineering; bioreactor engineering; enzymatic conversions; life-cycle assessment; downstream processing; modeling, simulation, and techno-economical evaluations are covered.
