Water e-Journal

Water e-Journal is the premier online hub for water, science and technical paper publication in Australia.

All technical papers that are submitted will be considered for publication in Water e-Journal, with one-page Executive Summaries also considered for publication in Current magazine.

Each paper goes through a rigorous quality control and peer-review evaluation process before being published.

The papers are peer-reviewed, with reviewers suggesting amendments if necessary. Once amendments are made by the author, the paper is edited, designed and published online in Water e-Journal. Executive Summaries are also published online, with links through to the full papers.

Technical papers should be submitted along with a 500-word Executive Summary, the relevant data and high-resolution graphics or images via Scholastica.

Anyone can submit a paper - you do not need to be a member of the Australian Water Association. Please see the Editorial Guidelines for details on word count, style and other requirements, or email journal@awa.asn.au for more information. Submissions are open all year around - please download the Editorial Calendar for further details.
