Water Research X offers authors with high-quality research who want to publish in a gold open access journal the opportunity to make their work immediately, permanently, and freely accessible.

Water Research X authors will pay an article publishing charge (APC), have a choice of license options, and retain copyright. Please check the APC on the journal homepage. By selecting this Gold OA journal, you acknowledge to pay a fee upon acceptance. As this title is newly launched, it does not have a Journal Impact Factor yet, however we will apply for inclusion in all the relevant indexing databases as soon as possible. The journal is indexed in Scopus, Web of Science, DOAJ and PMC.

Water Research and Water Research X have the same aims and scope. A unified editorial team manages rigorous peer-review for both titles using the same submission system. The author's choice of journal is blinded to referees, ensuring the editorial process is identical. For more information please refer to our FAQs for authors.

Water Research X publishes refereed, original research papers on all aspects of the science and technology of the anthropogenic water cycle, water quality, and its management worldwide. A broad outline of the journal's scope includes:
•Treatment processes for water and wastewaters (municipal, agricultural, industrial, and on-site treatment), including resource recovery and residuals management;
•Urban hydrology including sewer systems, stormwater management, and green infrastructure;
•Drinking water treatment and distribution;
•Potable and non-potable water reuse;
•Sanitation, public health, and risk assessment;
•Anaerobic digestion, solid and hazardous waste management, including source characterization and the effects and control of leachates and gaseous emissions;
•Contaminants (chemical, microbial, anthropogenic particles such as nanoparticles or microplastics) and related water quality sensing, monitoring, fate, and assessment;
•Inland, tidal, coastal and urban waters, including surface and ground waters, and point and non-point sources of pollution;
•Environmental restoration, including soil, linked to groundwater and groundwater remediation;
•Analysis of the interfaces between sediments and water, and between water and atmosphere;
•Mathematical modelling, systems analysis, machine learning, and beneficial use of big data related to the anthropogenic water cycle;
•Socio-economic, policy, and regulations studies.

Water Research is an interdisciplinary journal with an applied edge. This means that papers that go into too many details of one of the supporting disciplines (such as chemistry, toxicology, microbiology, material sciences, etc.) without making a good link with water research in general may be rejected up-front. More information on types of manuscripts that are not suitable for Water Research are discussed in an editorial available at https://doi.org/10.1016/j.watres.2012.01.038.

Audience: Biologists, chemical engineers, chemists, civil engineers, environmental engineers, limnologists, and microbiologists.
