Water and Environment Journal is an internationally recognised peer reviewed Journal for the dissemination of innovations and solutions focussed on enhancing water management best practice. Water and Environment Journal is available to over 12,000 institutions with a further 7,000 copies physically distributed to the Chartered Institution of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM) membership, comprised of environment sector professionals based across the value chain (utilities, consultancy, technology suppliers, regulators, government and NGOs). As such, the journal provides a conduit between academics and practitioners. We therefore particularly encourage contributions focussed at the interface between academia and industry, which deliver industrially impactful applied research underpinned by scientific evidence. We are keen to attract papers on a broad range of subjects including:

  • Water and wastewater treatment for agricultural, municipal and industrial applications
  • Sludge treatment including processing, storage and management
  • Water recycling
  • Urban and stormwater management
  • Integrated water management strategies
  • Water infrastructure and distribution
  • Climate change mitigation including management of impacts on agriculture, urban areas and infrastructure

Submissions that respond to the following integrated themes are also encouraged:

  • Circular Economy
  • Resilience
  • Resource Recovery
  • Water-Energy-Food nexus
  • Environmental conservation, ecosystem services measurement, and valuation and natural capital accounting related to water resources

The journal publishes research and review articles. Preferred contributions will introduce the application of emerging or innovative solutions to industrially important challenges. Contributions seeking to apply existing methods are welcomed but their impact and novelty should be made clear. In all cases, authors should ensure that their research is contextualised to enrich understanding of the impact of arising new knowledge to industry and the wider academic community. Reviews for the ‘Leading-Edge Innovation’ series are by invitation only. Authors seeking to submit a Review Article for general consideration are to contact the Editor-in-Chief to discuss the scope and suitability of the proposed contribution prior to submission.
