Letters to the Editor are welcomed, whether they are intended for publication or are
comments and questions.
Discussions of previous papers are also appropriate. The author of the paper will normally be
offered the option of submitting a response.
Submitting a paper
Papers may be articles, technical
notes, case studies, reviews, or tutorials. The preferred method of submission
is to send a Word file with embedded graphics by e-mail to the Editor. Figures
should be saved in their original format for submission at the time of
publication. Other methods of submission, and further information, are
described in the Petrophysics Instructions to Authors.
Please submit your articles, etc.
Papers that comply with the goals
of the journal are assigned to an Associate Editor who solicits three reviews
and, based on these reviews, decides whether the paper should be accepted,
revised, or rejected. Reviewers are given Guidelines
and complete an Evaluation Form.
Once accepted the author needs to make an Assignment of
Copyright to the SPWLA.
