Aims & Scope

Water Science and Technology publishes peer-reviewed papers on all aspects of the science and technology of wastewater treatment and water quality management worldwide. This encompasses five broad areas:

Wastewater treatment and transportation processes for stormwater and domestic, industrial and municipal effluents
Sources of pollution including hazardous wastes and source control
Effects and impacts of pollution on rivers, lakes, groundwater and marine waters
Water reuse and aquatic environmental restoration
Policy, strategy, control and management aspects of water quality

Water Science and Technology, together with Water Supply and Water Practice and Technology, have a special mission to serve as a bridge between science, engineering applications and management aspects of water as represented by the many IWA Specialist Groups. Papers describing progress in full-scale implementations are particularly encouraged. Water Science and Technology offers fast publication for new findings and research directions.


Water Science and Technology is published semi-monthly as 24 issues per year, in two volumes.
