Journal of Hydroinformatics is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to the application of information technology in the widest sense to problems of the aquatic environment. It promotes Hydroinformatics as a cross-disciplinary field of study, combining technological, human-sociological and more general environmental interests, including an ethical perspective.


Online Water Data Networks: Methods, Standards, Tools, and Technologies

Guest Editors:
Dr Boyan Brodaric, Geological Survey of Canada
Dr Michael Piasecki, City College of New York, USA

Sources of surface and subsurface water data are increasingly being connected online. Such connections are forming integrated data networks typically at the national scale, which are further being incorporated into wider global networks. This network growth is facilitated by a new suite of international geospatial standards, new research on interoperability methods, and maturing tools and technologies.

Contributions on all these aspects are invited. Papers must clearly demonstrate their innovative component, and should include as a central component the connectivity of online resources pertaining to the surface or subsurface water domains. Descriptions of new methods are particularly encouraged, case studies are also welcome accompanied by significant lessons learned, and descriptions of new online systems, tools, or information models, should demonstrate their relevance, significance, and improvement on related work.

Papers are to be submitted directly to the Journal of Hydroinformatics online peer review system, following standard submission protocols. During the submission process, authors should select the Article Type "Special Issue Paper", and the Section/Category "HIC2014 Special Issue".

Submission deadline: March 31, 2015
The issue will be published in late 2015.

Types of Contributions:
Technical papers, practice papers, technical notes and discussions. Technical papers and practice papers are full-length, original contributions that must have fewer than 10,000 words, or word equivalents. Technical notes, i.e., short articles presenting preliminary or partial results of research, concisely presented research results, or innovative hydroinformatics techniques, will invite papers that are no longer than 5,000 words. Discussions, i.e., a submission presenting significant comments or questions about the published work in the Journal, can be submitted after discussion with the Editor-in-Chief.

Note to contributors: All manuscripts should be submitted electronically through our Online Submission and Peer Review System.

Rapid evaluation process:
The Journal of Hydroinformatics has a target review time of 20 weeks (from receipt to final decision), and a target total publication time of one year (from receipt to final publication).

Journal of Hydroinformatics papers free to view online: We are pleased to announce our new policy of making papers older than 2 years free to view. Click here to see which issues can be accessed.
