DWES provides full-text XML

24 Nov 2014

Drinking Water Engineering and Science (DWES) has started an XML-first workflow and will provide all new articles in full-text XML from now on. 

Aims and Scope

Drinking Water Engineering and Science aims to be the leading scientific open access journal for the publication of original research in drinking water treatment. The focus is on fundamental and applied research in water sources, substances, drinking water treatment processes, distribution systems and residual management.

Drinking Water Engineering and Science serves scientists from universities and research institutes and engineers from water supply companies and engineering consulting firms.

Every issue will contain at least one paper on drinking water in developing countries. A fund will be established to give authors from developing countries the opportunity to publish their work.
