The Energy Law Journal was first published in May 1980. Published twice a year, it has close to 3,000 subscribers in the United States and 10 foreign countries, including Canada, England, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Scotland, Singapore, Nigeria, Greece, and Turkey. The Journal has become a preeminent energy publication, providing thought-provoking and deeply researched articles by practitioners, internationally known academics, Federal judges, high ranking government officials and members of FERC. The Journal often has been cited by Federal and State Courts and agencies, law review articles and journals, energy industry speakers and the FERC. The Journal maintains a list of court opinions and other published legal materials citing articles appearing in the Journal.

The Energy Law Journal publishes legal, policy, and economic articles and other materials of lasting interest with significant research value on subjects dealing with the energy industries. The Journal also welcomes articles and other materials on emerging issues and significant developments affecting the energy industries. The Journal publishes articles and other materials of varying length that provide a full consideration of the issues and opposing viewpoints. All manuscripts must contain a synopsis, table of contents, and brief biographical statement about the author(s). Style and form of citations must be in conformity with the "Blue Book," as well as the Energy Law Journal Style Manual posted on the Energy Bar Association website. Because the Journal is a peer-reviewed publication, we do not accept proposed articles solely-authored by law students.  All manuscripts should be sent to HARVEY L. REITER, EDITOR-IN-CHIEF. A full digital version of the Journal is free to all members of the Energy Bar Association.
