    Authors should be mindful that Water Journal is published in a three column ‘magazine’ format rather than the full-page format of Word documents. Graphics should be set up so that they will still be clearly legible when reduced to two-column size (about 12cm wide). Tables and figures need to be numbered with the appropriate reference in the text e.g. see Figure 1, not just placed in the text with a reference as they may end up anywhere on the page when typeset.


    Technical papers are abstracted by the major services in the USA, UK, Europe, Russia and Japan.
