A new package of Water Resources journals
It is now widely recognized that we are now dealing with a water crisis. The issue is high on the agenda for politicians, environmental managers and policy makers. Consequently, the water resources field is now one of the fastest growing in the world. Previously, studies were largely confined to the environmental sciences. The rapid expansion in the field has meant that, more recently, economics, social sciences and integrated resource management have increased in importance. To reflect this, Elsevier are launching a package of four journals covering key aspects of the discipline:
- Water Resources and Economics
- Water Resources and Industry
- Water Resources and Rural Development
- Sustainability of Water Quality and Ecology
As an introduction offer, all articles in these four journals are freely available in the first year.
Open Access Options
Access to quality research is vital to the scientific community and beyond. We support sustainable access and work hard to provide a range of open access options alongside our access initiatives to ensure everyone can read, use and trust the latest research.
We are committed to working in partnership with the research community, librarians, funders and other stakeholders. Our Elsevier team is continually on the road meeting the community, participating in discussions and establishing partnerships which will help support increase access to research.
