Journal of Water Process Engineering - ISSN 2214-7144
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.276 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.808 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 3.465 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

The Journal of Water Process Engineering aims to be the premier international forum for the publication of world leading, high impact research on the sustainable engineering of water and wastewater treatment processes.


Water process engineering is interpreted by us as the understanding and application of the fundamental laws and principles of nature that allow us to transform raw or waste water sources into products that are useful to society, while operating at laboratory, pilot or full industrial scale. These products include clean water, energy and material resources. Our scope focuses on the design, operation, control, modelling, optimization and intensification of chemical, physical, and biological processes for water treatment.

We emphasize the process engineering aspects of water treatment processes, for which the focus of the study is on the engineered application and practice rather than the fundamental and underlying science.

Submission of outstanding research articles and state-of-the-art reviews are actively encouraged from academic and industrial researchers and technologists in the following areas of interest:

  • Sustainable water treatment.
  • Potable and wastewater treatment, resource recovery and water reuse.
  • Community-based water treatment.
  • Membrane-based water and wastewater processing, such as forward osmosis processes (but excluding desalination i.e. water desalting).
  • Biological wastewater processing (aerobic and anaerobic) and biofilm reactors.
  • Nanotechnology-based water processing.
  • Industrial effluent processing and resource recovery/recycle.
  • Advanced oxidation processing.
  • Electro-based water processing.
  • Coagulation, precipitation and flocculation processes.
  • Fixed-bed adsorption processes.
  • Renewable energy powered water processing.
  • Development and application of novel materials for water processing.

We are particularly interested in the growth of submissions which emphasize the process engineering aspects of water sustainability, focusing on issues related to the reclamation, reuse and recycling of water, materials and energy from alternative sources, including fit-for-purpose treatment processes and technologies with reduced energy and chemical consumption, lower environmental/carbon footprint, and greater social benefit.

We are also interested in those submissions which explore emerging areas of research focus; please look out for our 'calls for papers' to be published in special issues. If you are interested in submitting a critical and insightful review paper on the state-of-the-art in a relevant area, we encourage you to contact one of the Editors-in-Chief first to discuss your proposal.

Please that, due to space limitations, we are unable to accept submissions which involve fundamental batch studies without a focus on engineering application. Common examples of this would include; studies of batch/static adsorption of model contaminants on adsorbents without dynamic flow studies, batch studies of photo-catalysts modified to operate in visible light for model contaminant degradation, microbiological studies without a strong link to biological processing, membrane fabrication without an application study.
