Water Science Journal (WSJ) has been published by NWRC since the early 80’s. By the end of 2013, it was transferred to an open access online journal produced and hosted by Elsevier. Water Science Journal addresses both basic and applied water research, and policy issues of prime interest to the water community. The scope of the journal encompasses high quality scientific papers and original research studies in all Water Resources related fields. In 2014, WSJ was granted the ‘Highest performance journal’ award according to several indicators set by Elsevier. By January 2019, WSJ would migrate to another esteemed international publisher: Taylor & Francis.
