Water Resources  is a journal that publishes articles on the assessment of water resources, integrated water resource use, water quality, and environmental protection. The journal covers many areas of research, including prediction of variations in continental water resources and regime; hydrophysical, hydrodynamic, hydrochemical and hydrobiological processes, environmental aspects of water quality and protection; economic, social, and legal aspects of water-resource development; and experimental methods of studies.
 

PEER REVIEW

Water Resources is a peer reviewed journal. We use a open peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes 47 experts, both internal and external (55%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2019 was 30 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 20 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2019 was 40%. The final decision on acceptance for publication in obvious cases (positive reviews after revision) is made by the Editor-in-Chief or the Deputy Editor-in-Chief, in controversial cases - with the involvement of additional members of the Editorial Board in the profile (up to 3 people).

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
