ISSN 1994-8549

E-WAter is the new electronic journal of the European Water Association (EWA). E-WAter is specifically targeted at European practitioners and researchers by providing a forum where articles presenting and discussing technical views and experiences of European authors in every domain of water management may be published. Every topic within water management can be interesting for the wide scope of the EWA audience: design and construction procedures, O&M, monitoring, legislation, etc. concerning natural waters, drinking water, wastewater and related wastes.
Although English is the generally adopted language, our journal is prepared to accept a few articles in other languages, provided that an extended abstract in English is supplied and the subject is recognised as outstanding European interest.

Prior to publication, proposed articles are reviewed by two referees from a network of European experts who form the Editorial Committee of the EWA.
Due to the easy access to an e-journal, articles do not need to be published at regular intervals. However, publishing frequency aims at a monthly publication of one paper.
 

 

 


If you wish to publish a paper, please contact the chairperson of the EWA Editorial Committee, Dr. Maria Helena F. Marecos do Monte, via the 
EWA . A guide for authors can be downloaded here . New referees for the e-journal are always welcome! If you would like to become a referee, please contact us . You can also download the application form here .

Opinions presented in the papers do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the EWA.

All rights reserved. Storage of the articles in retrieval systems is allowed for private purposes only. The translation into other languages, reprinting, reproduction by online services, on other web-sites and on CD-ROM etc. is only allowed after written permission of the European Water Association.

Recommendations on how to cite an electronic document can be found on the homepage of the National Library of Canada.
