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 both on paper and in electronic form on Wiley Online Library where it can be downloaded by researchers, educators, and policy-makers around the world.
Beginning in 2019, the following publication charges will apply per article:
$300 for UCOWR members
$500 for non-UCOWR members.
These fees are subject to change.
In 2019, two journal issues (April and August) will be open issues comprised of general submissions. JCWRE is currently accepting submissions for consideration. Submissions for the 2019 April issue should be sent by November 19, 2018. Submissions for the 2019 August issue should be sent by January 21, 2019. Email submissions to Jackie Crim (email@example.com). Articles submitted after the deadlines will be considered for the following open issue or upcoming themed issues, if appropriate.
