  • Aims and scope

    JWARP is an international refereed journal dedicated to the latest advancement of water resources and protection. The goal of this journal is to keep a record of the state-of-the-art research and promote the research work in these fast moving areas:

    - Economic, sociological, and environmental considerations of water resources and sustainable use of water resources
    - Innovative technologies and engineering solutions for water resources protection
    Monitoring, modeling and prediction of water pollution (watershed, lakes, rivers, estuaries, and coasts)
    - Sea water utilization
    - Surface and ground water systems and water pollution control
    - Water management automation system
    - Water purification and wastewater treatment (mechanical, biological, chemical, and other treatments)
    - Water resources and climatic change
    - Water resources conservation
    - Water resources protection and sustainable use
    - Water resources restoration and management
    - Water resources study and water quality assessment

    We are also interested in short papers (letters) that clearly address a specific problem, and short survey or position papers that sketch the results or problems on a specific topic. Authors of selected short papers would be invited to write a regular paper on the same topic for future issues of the JWARP

  • Guide to authors

    To expedite the review process, please format the manuscript in ways as follow:
    1. Prepare your manuscript as a single PDF or editable Word document. The file should include the complete text, references, tables and figures. Any revised manuscripts should be sent as a single editable Word document.
    2. Manuscripts should be written in English and include a 100-300 word abstract.
    3. Make sure all the characters in the text, tables, figure legends, footnotes and references are in a single typeface and point size – such as 12 pt Times New Roman. Once a manuscript is accepted, a copy editor will decide the typeface and size of the different elements of the article.
    4. Submit all figures or photographs as jpg or tif files with distinct characters and symbols at 500 dpi (dots per inch). Tables and equations should be in an editable rather than image version. Tables must be edited with Word. Equations must be edited with Equation Editor.
    5. Type your manuscript single spaced. This will save pages, makes it easier for reviewers to handle and helps slow down global warming by using less paper.
    6. All references should be numbered in square brackets in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section in the order they appear in the text, as shown below:
