The Oil Shale is an international scientific-technical open access journal published by the Estonian Academy Publishers in collaboration with the University of Tartu, Tallinn University of Technology, and the Estonian University of Life Sciences.
All papers to be published in the journal are peer reviewed internationally.
The Oil Shale (Goryuchie Slantsy) was founded in 1984 as a joint scientific-technical journal of the Academies of Sciences of the former USSR and Estonian SSR. The Oil Shale is concerned with geology, mining, genesis, composition, methods of processing and combustion, economics and utilization of oil shale and bituminous sands, as well as with problems of environment protection.
The Oil Shale is the only journal in the world specialized mainly in oil shale problems.
In 1990, the Editorial Board started to reorganize the previous journal having been written mainly in Russian into an international one with the purpose to join the scientists dealing with oil shale research all over the world and to present the achievements of Estonian specialists.
The Oil Shale, the journal of the Estonian Academy of Sciences, is administered by the Estonian Academy Publishers from January 1999 and runs on a non-profit base. The journal closely cooperates with the institutes of TalTech (Tallinn University of Technology).
