About the Journal

Using the evolving digital modes of R&D communication, The Journal of Water Management Modeling (JWMM) strives to be the first open-access exchange in the special sub-discipline of water management modeling. JWMM publishes novel methodologies and advances, from basic research to planning, engineering, and operational studies, with an accent on useful and pragmatic ideas and engineering. Accentuating the nuanced difference between applied technology and fundamental science, JWMM fosters unusual cooperation between three sub-communities (developers, users, and beneficiaries) on conceptual and practical engineering models of urban, rural, and watershed-scale water supply and drainage systems, both natural and engineered.

By communicating digitally and using the latest web development technologies, JWMM disseminates new ideas as widely and effectively as possible. Like other recent science journals, JWMM is an example of peer-reviewed, open access publishing - access to the published material and its reuse is free; length, format, and quantity of online articles published is unrestricted; and the publication process is in fact a fast, painless and pleasant experience.

The Journal of Water Management Modeling obtains many of its papers from the annual International Conference on Water Management Modeling (formerly on Urban Water Systems) held in Toronto and has grown naturally from the annual monograph produced for that series of conferences, a series renowned for its commitment to a positive presenting and publishing experience, and for being particularly supportive of young authors. Thus JWMM editors and reviewers have 25 years of demonstrated concern for encouraging postgraduate R&D in hydrology and hydraulics modeling.
