Water Research
Welcome to the online submission and editorial system for Water Research.

Water Research publishes refereed, original research papers on all aspects of the science and technology of water quality and its management worldwide. A broad outline of the journal's scope includes:

  • Treatment processes 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.
  • Public health and risk assessment.
  • Socio-economic studies.

Biologists, chemical engineers, chemists, civil engineers, environmental engineers, limnologists and microbiologists.
