Elsevier to launch new Journal of Water Process Engineering

The Journal of Water Process Engineering will publish refereed, high-quality research papers with significant novelty and impact in all areas of the engineering of water and wastewater processing. In particular, the journal will focus on contributions involving environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable technology for water treatment.

The Editors of the Journal of Water Process Engineering are Dr Nicholas Hankins (Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, UK), and Abdul Wahab Mohammed (Research Centre for Sustainable Process Technology, National University of Malaysia).

The first issue of the Journal of Water Process Engineering, comprising invited papers, will be published towards the end of March 2014. The Editors are now inviting submissions for subsequent issues of the journal.

Throughout 2014 papers published in JWPE will be made freely available online on ScienceDirect.

‘This new journal is very much needed to disseminate scientific findings in the wide area of water processing,’ says Professor Nidal Hilal, Editor-in-Chief of sister journal Desalination, and Director of the Centre for Water Advanced Technologies and Environmental Research (CWATER) at Swansea University, UK.

‘It compliments what is published in Desalination, as it covers a wide range of topics in the engineering of water and wastewater processing,’ continues Hilal. ‘It provides an invaluable source of information for water researchers, water practitioners, including those active in utilities, consultants and engineers, enabling interested readers to find and access the information they are seeking.’
