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 June issue is now available on the Current Issues page. This issue offers a litigation update by Mark D. Christiansen, originally presented at the 2018 Kuntz Conference on Natural Resources Law and Policy, along with a student comment by Daniel Tavera, exploring the different ways bankruptcy courts may classify oil and gas leases and how the disparate treatment may result in a party losing its property interest in the event of bankruptcy. The issue also includes recent case summaries on topics within the ONE J fields.
ONE J has chosen its editorial board for 2019-2020. The new editors are: Editor-in-Chief: Veronica Threadgill; Managing Editor: Ashton Poarch; Case Editors: Maxfield Malone, Grady Block, and Anthony Purinton; Articles Editors: Laura Waddill, Andrew Hiller, and Andrew Rasbold, and Daniel Tavera; Submissions Editor: Jamie Crandal; Symposium Editor: Hunter W.
