AGER special issue

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce a special issue in Advances in Geo-Energy Research (AGER) dedicated to works that make use of the MATLAB Reservoir Simulation Toolbox (MRST). The special issue is organized as a follow-up to the 2023 MRST Symposium, but submission is open to all authors regardless of whether they presented work at the MRST Symposium or not.

Guidelines for preparation of manuscript can be found at The MRST textbooks, found at, can serve as an inspiration for format and style for submitted papers. We strongly encourage submitted papers to include the release of accompanying codes as open source.

Papers should be submitted via the online submission system at To ensure that all manuscripts are correctly identified for consideration for this special issue, it is important that authors select VSI: MRST2023 as the ‘Article Type’ during the submission process.

Please note that as AGER is an open access journal, authors are requested to pay the Article Processing Charge (APC), currently $490 US dollars plus tax, per processed article. This is for the production cost and Open Access fees, and applies to all articles accepted after peer review; rejected articles are free of charge.

AGER will offer a 10% discount on all papers that are submitted for the special issue. Please note the APC will increase in January 2024.

Final deadline for submissions is 1st June 2024, but accepted articles will be published on an ongoing basis up until the deadline.
