Journal of South Carolina Water Resources

The Journal of South Carolina Water Resources is a peer-reviewed, open access publication that was established in 2013 by South Carolina Water Resources Conference planning committee members to enhance outreach efforts. It is a publication of the South Carolina Water Resources Conference managed by the South Carolina Water Resources Center of Clemson University Public Service and Agriculture. The Journal is published annually in the fourth quarter (Q4) of the year. The digital format of the issues are available here.

Limited print copies of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 issues are also available for $8 each. Please visit the South Carolina Water Resources store on Clemson Marketplace.

The aim of the Journal of South Carolina Water Resources is to provide a forum for articles about the condition of South Carolina’s water resources, with the goals of influencing science-based management decisions and heightening awareness of our water resources. Accepted submissions must successfully pass through a 3-step peer review process in order to be published. We encourage authors to consider this forum as an outlet to communicate information and results from their work pertaining to South Carolina, including experimental and discovery science; policy analysis; developments in water and environmental law management issues; and case studies. South Carolina is a water-rich state, and as our population and economy continue to expand, access to reliable and clean water resources is critically important for the resiliency, health and well-being of South Carolinians. Wider knowledge and awareness of the issues is of utmost importance to protect and make the most of our water resources.

Deadline to submit full articles for consideration is the end of January for the issue year (i.e., submission deadline for the 2018 issue is January 31, 2018). For updates and reminders related to the Journal, please subscribe to the SCWRC e-list or contact the Managing Staff Editor, Dawn Anticole White.
