About the Journal

International Journal of Water Resources Engineering [2456-1606(e)] is a peer-reviewed hybrid open-access journal launched in 2015 that emphasizes hydropower engineering, hydrodynamics, water conservation, river restoration, and other major water resource engineering disciplines. Journal publishes both original research articles and high-impact comprehensive review articles of the field.
