The Oil and Gas, Natural Resources, and Energy Journal (ONE J) focuses on all facets of the energy and natural resources industry—including oil and gas, wind and other renewables, water, and agriculture. Since ONE J began operation in the spring of 2015, its student editorial boards have published over 3,500 pages of scholarly articles and case summaries. Students publish a new ONE J issue online every other month, making the journal the most frequently circulated of OU Law’s scholarly periodicals.
According to statistics from Digital Commons, ONE J works have been downloaded over 56,875 times from 3,864 institutions in 164 countries since the journal’s founding. In the ‘Energy and Utilities Law Commons’ section of the Digital Commons site, five of the ten most popular articles for December 2017 came from ONE J. The readership for these works consists of scholars and practitioners around the world.
ONE J is the first peer-reviewed publication of its kind in the nation. The journal also hosts an annual symposium each spring.
Students at the College of Law are eligible to join ONE J during the summer before their 2L year. Rising 2L students may receive offers for membership based on either their performance in first-year classes or their written submissions during the annual law review writing competition. Rising 3L students and transfer students are also eligible for membership through the writing competition.
ONE J’s January issue is now available on the Current Issues page. The issue features two new articles: "Curative Pooling When the Validity of an Oil and Gas Lease Is Challenged (Force Pooling the Top Lessee)," by Matt Allenby, and "Local Content Policies in the Petroleum Industry: Lessons Learned," by Eduardo G. Pereira, Christopher Mathews & Heike Trischmann. The issue also includes recent case summaries on topics within the ONE J fields.
Volume 4, issue 4 of ONE J was published in November and is also available on the Current Issues page. The 2018-19 board's fourth issue featured articles by four scholars, based on papers they presented at the second annual ONE J Symposium in the spring of 2018. This issue also included recent case summaries on topics within the ONE J fields.
