Aims and Scope
The Journal of Contemporary Water Research and Education (JCWRE) disseminates original, peer-reviewed articles and comprehensive reviews on applied research, policy, education, and outreach/extension in water and watershed science and management, with international scope and an emphasis on transdisciplinary approaches and perspectives. Two themed issues a year focus on topics that emerge from conferences, water resources organizations, national training or education programs, and research and extension teams. One issue per year is reserved for general submissions. JCWRE is published by the Universities Council on Water Resources (UCOWR).
The journal is published three times per year by UCOWR. It is available in electronic form on Wiley Online Library where it can be downloaded by researchers, educators, and policy-makers around the world. Issues are published in April, August, and December, unless unforeseen circumstances occur. The two themed issues are typically published in April and December. The issue reserved for general submissions is typically published in August.
Article Categories (New for 2021)
JCWRE publishes articles in five categories: Original Research, Case Study, Review, Research Note, and Perspective Piece. Each category has specific author guidelines. View the Author Guidelines for more information. Your manuscript will not be considered for publication unless it follows the manuscript requirements. All categories, except Perspective Pieces, are peer-reviewed and subject to standard publication fees. Perspective Pieces are reviewed internally by our Editors and are not charged a publication fee.
The following publication charges apply per article:
$300 for UCOWR members
$500 for non-UCOWR members.
These fees are subject to change.
JCWRE is currently accepting submissions for consideration. Manuscripts can be submitted at any time. Most general submissions are published in the August issue which is designated for open submissions. However, general submissions may be considered for themed issues if appropriate. If accepted before the issue is published, the article will be published as a sneak peek on our website (https://ucowr.org/journal/jcwre-sneak-peek/). Manuscripts should be submitted by October 15 to be considered for the April issue; February 15 to be considered for the August issue; and June 15 to be considered for the December issue.
