About This Journal

Journal of Spatial Hydrology™ is an interdisciplinary, international academic journal that publishes original research papers, case studies, software introductions, and dataset descriptions in the water science domain. Water research is an inherently broad discipline and, consequently, supports a number of academic journals with highly specialized niche foci. In contrast, The Journal seeks to provide a fully open access venue for researchers to both publish and access high-quality interdisciplinary research and technology regarding all aspects of water science.

Relevant topics for research papers and submissions include, but are not limited to, surface water hydrology, groundwater hydrology, water policy, water resources planning, hydroinformatics, river restoration, climate hydrology, data analysis, watershed simulation, reservoir management, water/wastewater treatment, and water distribution. Presentations may be in the form of original research articles, conference papers, software introductions, and dataset descriptions. Journal of Spatial Hydrology™ is particularly interested in publishing articles with linked companion datasets, models, and tools published through the CUAHSI Hydrologic Information System, HydroShare.org, Sead-Data.net, Figshare.org, and related open access systems. Articles should advance development and use of open data, open source software, and open access models and technologies.
