Aims and Scope

Water Harvesting Research (WHR) is an international, open access, scholarly publication, aims to provide a medium for dissemination of innovative and consequential papers within water harvesting context in its widest sense, with an emphasis on new approaches and aspects of the rainwater harvesting. It is the principal aim of the Journal to conform to the high possible scientific and technical standards. Covering a much wider field than the usual specialist journals, it allows the reader to see his particular interest related to the water resources management as a whole. It is implied that all the papers submitted are based on original research and will have to undergo peer review as per the policy of the journal.

WHR is intended to be a link between basic water harvesting research and practical application of scientific results within the broad field of water management. Papers that draw upon adjoining sciences are embraced as well.

The scope of the journal includes, but is not limited to, the following topic areas:

  • Rainwater and floodwater harvesting: Issues and challenges
  • Optimum use of water harvested resources
  • Socio- economic impacts of water harvesting system
