Message from the Editor-in-Chief of JAWRA...

JAWRA is unique as it seeks to publish integrative research spanning across a broad range of water issues. It provides a single forum to bring together social, physical, natural, and computational sciences to solve pressing water resources issues in a systems-oriented manner. The readership of JAWRA is also wide, so the journal emphasizes clear writing which is understandable to a broad range of multidisciplinary audiences. As such, writing a paper for JAWRA is different than writing for “discipline-specific” journals. ~Dr. Venkatesh Uddameri
