Aims and Scope

Journal of Water is an open access, peer reviewed journal that aims in providing a high profile international outlet for analyses and discussions of all aspects of water, environment and society. JW highlights the importance of water and its multifaceted utility approach in our vital ecosystems.It  also promotes contributions in the areas of integration, synthesis, assessment in scientific research, engineering solutions and scientific innovations in aid of adaptation procedure and management to maximize the economic and communal progress, paving the path towards sustainable improvement.

The scope of the journal is outlined below, but not strictly confined to them.

  • Treatment methods for water and wastewaters, municipal, agricultural and industrial, including residuals management.
  • Water quality monitoring and assessment, based on chemical, physical and biological methods.
  • Studies on inland, tidal or coastal waters and urban waters, including surface and ground waters, and point and non-point sources of pollution.
  • The limnology of lakes, impoundments and rivers.
  • Solid and hazardous waste management, including source characterization and the effects and control of leachates and gaseous emissions.
  • Environmental restoration, including soil and groundwater remediation.
  • Analysis of the interfaces between sediments and water, and water/atmosphere interactions.
  • The application of mathematical modelling and system analysis techniques.
