Water Environment Research Launches New Manuscript Submission Website

Site Makes It Easier Than Ever to Be Considered for Publication in Respected Journal

Alexandria, VA — Today Water Environment Research (WER), the highly-regarded journal of the Water Environment Federation, announced a change to a new website designed for easy submission of manuscripts highlighting the world's best research in water quality. At, authors will experience a much simpler submission process for manuscripts covering a range of important technical issues such as nutrient removal, stormwater, and biosolids recycling.

"We've made this change because the new site is easier to use and more intuitive, while preserving the best aspects of our old system," said WER Editor-in-Chief Mike Stenstrom. "We invite our readers to submit articles for consideration and look forward to seeing even more great research."

Published since 1928, WER features peer-reviewed research papers and research notes, as well as state-of-the-art and critical reviews on original, fundamental, and applied research in all scientific and technical areas related to water quality, pollution control, and management. Originally known as the Sewage Works Journal, WER is available in both print and online formats and receives approximately 300 new research submissions each year.
