Important Announcement

Water Science and Technology now publishes authoritative review articles that summarise the state of the art for key topics within the scope of the journal. The following gives a definition of the type of material sought:

Review articles are critical and comprehensive reviews that provide new insights or interpretation of a subject through thorough and systematic evaluation of available evidence. They should not normally exceed 8000 words. Manuscripts exceeding 10,000 words will not be accepted for review.

Review articles must give an accurate representation of current views on their subject matter and provide an informed perspective on directions of future research and development. Articles that are simply literature surveys and lack a critical scientific assessment will normally not be accepted.

Review Articles will be subject to a full peer review to ensure that they are of the highest quality.
