IFPEN is keen to promote scientific research and ensure its knowledge is disseminated to the widest possible audience. Since 2012, its publications have been available in open archives. IFPEN leads the editorial committee of OGST (Oil & Gas Science and Technology), an open access journal, and, several times a year, publishes a scientific information letter aimed at a broad public, Science@ifpen.

With a view to disseminating its knowledge, IFPEN’s researchers present numerous papers and posters at conferences and publish articles listed in the Science Citation Index, as well as unlisted non-specialized and scientific articles (articles in field-specific journals, in general).

657 IFPEN publications in 2017, including more than 150 referenced by the WoS

Over the period 2013-2017, IFPEN co-published papers with entities located in some 50 different countries. More than 20% of its international joint publications are written with a European country. IFPEN primarily publishes with entities located in the USA, Germany and the Netherlands.

Since 2012, the HAL-IFPEN platform has provided open access to scientific papers published by IFPEN.

Most of these papers are available in full-text format, in their “post-print” version, unless otherwise indicated by the publishers. IFPEN’s aims are to:

  • contribute to the development of open access to scientific and technical information,
  • increase the dissemination of its research results.

More than 1,200 papers available in full-text format in HAL
