Water Research has an open access mirror journal Water Research X, sharing the same aims and scope, editorial team, submission system and rigorous peer review. Water Research publishes refereed, original research papers on all aspects of the science and technology of water quality and its management worldwide. A broad outline of the journal's scope includes: -Treatment processes for water and wastewaters, municipal, agricultural and industrial, including residuals management. -Water quality monitoring and assessment, based on chemical, physical and biological methods. -Studies on inland, tidal or coastal waters and urban waters, including surface and ground waters, and point and non-point sources of pollution. -The limnology of lakes, impoundments and rivers. -Solid and hazardous waste management, including source characterization and the effects and control of leachates and gaseous emissions. -Environmental restoration, including soil and groundwater remediation. -Analysis of the interfaces between sediments and water, and water/atmosphere interactions. -The application of mathematical modelling and system analysis techniques. -Public health and risk assessment. -Socio-economic studies. Audience: Biologists, chemical engineers, chemists, civil engineers, environmental engineers, limnologists and microbiologists.

Impact Factor

The impact factor (IF) or journal impact factor (JIF) of an academic journal is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. In other words, the impact factor of 2020 is the average of the number of cited publications divided by the citable publications of a journal. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Normally, journals with higher impact factors are often deemed to have more influence than those with lower ones. However, the science community has also noted that review articles typically are more citable than research articles.

Other Journal Impact Indicator

Any journal impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. That’s why every year, scholars review current metrics to improve upon them and sometimes come up with new ones. There are also other factors to sider for example, H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR (SCImago Journal Rank Indicator) and SNIP (Source Normalized Impact per Paper). Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR)

SCImago Journal Rank (SJR indicator) is a measure of scientific influence of scholarly journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from.
