4. If my article is published, how will it be cited?


Articles in Energy, Sustainability and Society should be cited in the same way as articles in a traditional journal. However, because articles in this journal are not printed, they do not have page numbers. Instead, they have a unique article number.

The following citation:

Energ Sustain Soc 2005, 6:306

refers to article 306 from Volume 6 of the journal.

As an online journal, Energy, Sustainability and Society does not have issue numbers. Each volume corresponds to a calendar year.
