JAWRA Featured Collection: “Adaptive Watershed Science and Ecosystem Management in a Changing Climate”

Featured Collection Theme

The Journal of the American Water Resources Association, JAWRA, is planning this Featured Collection to highlight contributions from the 8th Interagency Conference on Research in the Watersheds. The theme of the conference is Adaptive Watershed Science and Ecosystem Management in a Changing Climate. This conference is scheduled for June 5-8, 2023, in Corvallis OR, USA.

The conference brings together watershed scientists, stakeholders, and managers to share scientific advances and management strategies to sustain the country’s water resources, spanning streams, rivers, lakes, freshwater wetlands, and estuaries. Presenters include researchers from government, academic, nonprofit, and community organizations working to understand, protect, restore, and manage water resources at local to national scales.

Manuscripts will be considered on research presented during any of the conference sessions. Click for a list of conference sessions. Authors who plan to submit a manuscript to the Featured Collection issue of JAWRA are required to present their work at the conference.

Manuscripts should be submitted online by registering and logging into the JAWRA submission website. When submitting, please be sure to indicate that the submission is for this Featured Collection (Adaptive Watershed Science and Ecosystem Management in a Changing Climate). Please note that authors are responsible for all JAWRA page charges.

The submission window for manuscripts meeting all JAWRA guidelines and ready for peer review will be June 12 through September 29, 2023. Authors are encouraged to submit their articles as early as possible to facilitate the peer-review process in advance of the conference.

Acceptance to present at the ICRW8 Conference is not a guarantee that an article will be accepted for JAWRA publication. However, assuming the article does meet JAWRA requirements and is completed in a timely manner it will be included in the Featured Collection. All the accepted papers will be accessible immediately on the JAWRA webpage and will be fully citable.
