CALL FOR PAPERS
Modeling the urban water cycle a part of the city
Guest Editors: Manfred Kleidorfer, Robert Sitzenfrei, Richard Dawson, Briony Ferguson and Wolfgang Rauch
Integrated urban water management has been introduced as a common term more than 2 decades ago. A that time the primary focus was to establish the basic understanding that urban drainage is not a singular process in a sewer pipe but one that actually influences the complete water management in a city. Since then an advent of research (especially modeling) efforts have been seen and also a slow introduction of these attempts into practice.
In the last years the drainage based concept of integrated water management has been expanded to the total water management. This requires taking into account the development of the urban systems as catchments but also the consideration of socio-economic effects in the outline of water management. A significant driver in the development of such novel concepts was the focus on decentralized concepts for water supply and drainage. The topic gets even more attention due to climate - and land use changes which leads to increased pressure on the adaptability on the solutions.
This special issue focuses on modeling urban water management in interaction with urban development and under consideration of socio-economic effects. The aim is to establish the state of the art in this novel field by presenting the most recent findings of high quality research.
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts for consideration for publication in this special issue of Water Science and Technology. The deadline for submission is 31 January 2014 and publication is expected in mid-2013. We encourage original research papers covering a variety of topics, including
- Urban Development
- Socio Economics
- Linking and Coupling of Models
- Calibration, Validation and Uncertainty
- Other related topics
Submissions should be prepared according to Water Science and Technology's Instructions to Authors, and should be submitted to the journal's online peer review site. When submitting your paper, ensure you select the 'Special Issue' Article Type, and 'Modeling the Urban Water Cycle Special Issue' Section/Category.
Note to contributors: All manuscripts should be submitted electronically through our Online Submission and Peer Review System.
Full archive now available online
IWA Publishing is pleased to announce that the back archive of Water Science and Technology is now available to subscribers online, for the first time.
This archive goes back to 1982.
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.
