About the Journal


InterPore Journal is a new international, peer-reviewed, open-access journal, entirely published and owned by The International Society for Porous Media (InterPore). Like the Society, our aims are similar in that we want to advance our understanding of, and research on, technical and industrial advances in porous media, to gain an improved understanding of the processes and phenomena involved, and to provide a medium in which this information can be easily shared within the international research community. However, we also have the overarching goal of becoming the focal point for the worldwide porous media community, where high quality research on the wide range of multidisciplinary multiscale topics related to porous media science and technology is published and made available for all.

Closely related to our goal of becoming the main destination for high quality research within all fields related to porous media are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN). Via the research that will be published in this journal, we will directly be supporting the following UN SDGs: 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 12, 13, and 15.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals


Though a society journal, we welcome contributions from the entire global community of porous media researchers working within academia, in industry, or with national and international research institutions.

Contributions linked to a porous media application, and which have a geological, industrial, environmental, or biological nature are encouraged. Submitted research may include, but is not limited to, physical and numerical modelling, imaging techniques and analysis, theory development, big data analysis, characterization, and/or material design.

The following types of articles can be submitted:

  • Original research papers, technical notes, and review articles that present the state-of-the-art on porous media research and applications and offer perspectives for future research and development.

  • Open datasets and source codes relevant to the porous media research, as they can offer a valuable resource to the porous media community.

  • Letters to the Editor, short communications, invited commentaries and papers, and opinion pieces.

From time to time, Special Issues based for instance on the contributions for the annual InterPore Meeting, or a special themed topic, may be published.
