How to submit a paper to the Water e-Journal

Anyone can submit a paper to the Water e-Journal. You do not need to be a member of the Australian Water Association. There is no publication charge and access to the public is free after a 3-month, exclusive access time for AWA members.

Technical papers should be submitted along with a 500-word Executive Summary, the relevant data and high-resolution graphics or images via Scholastica. Each paper goes through a rigorous quality control and peer-review evaluation process before being published.  

After a paper is peer-reviewed, the author(s) is expected to incorporate the amendments suggested by the peer reviewers. Once a revised document is submitted by the author, the paper is edited, designed and published online in Water e-Journal. Executive Summaries are also published online, with links to the full papers. 

Please see the
Editorial Guidelinesfor details on word count, style and other requirements.
