H2Open Journal Instructions for Authors
H2Open Journal welcomes the submission of original research and review papers. We are flexible in the length of submissions however, we encourage authors to be concise in their work, and bear in mind the recommended word limits for each article type below. You can find an article template here.
Papers must be in good, grammatically correct English. If your paper cannot be understood, it will be rejected. If English is not your native language, you should seek the assistance of a colleague or professional translator. IWA Publishing has partnered with Peerwith, who offer a language editing service: https://iwap.peerwith.com/
In addition, you should always have your manuscript read by at least two other people to avoid typing errors before submitting to a journal.PREPARATION
As soon as the article has been published online, the corresponding author will receive a customized link to the article, which they are encouraged to share via any communication channel, including e-mail and social media. The corresponding author will receive an electronic file of the final version of the article when it has been published in an issue. Additionally, hardcopy offprints can be ordered using the Offprint Order Form, available from IWA Publishing on request.
You should ensure you check your proofs carefully to avoid errors in the final published article. If, however, you notice a scientifically relevant error in the final version of your article, you should contact the journal office to request a correction. Please ensure you include the manuscript reference number of the article. Relevant reasons for correction include:
- An error in a figure that does not alter the conclusions of the article;
- An error in data that does not alter the conclusions of the article;
- Mislabelled figures;
- An error in the author list (an author has been included or omitted);
- An error introduced by the publisher during production.
