Aims & Scope

Water Supply is an international Open Access peer-reviewed journal that focuses on all aspects of water supply, this allows us to focus not only on new scientific advances in this large subject area, but also gives us the opportunity to work on the technological aspects. This means that our readership is widespread throughout universities and within industry.

For prospective authors, we offer expertise through our global editorial board and reviewer pool and strive to make sure that your experience with us is hassle free. We are looking to build our community and hope that you will want to be part of that.

The scope of the journal falls within three distinct areas; Water Quality, Water Management and Design & Modelling. We will accept papers within the following areas:


Water Quality/Water Treatment

Biological treatment processes for water
Physico-chemical treatment of water

Decentralised biological and physico-chemical treatment of drinking water
Drinking water, recreational water quality
Water pollutants, characteristics and effects

Emergent and priority pollutants
