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 Clemson Extension Imprint, and the annual issues are published 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 here for $8 each.

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 structured peer-review process in order to be published. General categories of submissions include data-driven analysis and policy or case study management. 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.


The 2021 Call for articles and short communications will be announced in May of 2020 and submissions will be due by mid-October 2020. Please visit the Journal’s website for additional information and to submit.

For 2021, a special issue will be published in addition to the regular issue that is published in December 2021. The special issue will be sponsored by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Center for Oceans and Human Health (OHH) at the University of South Carolina, and the theme is Water and Human Health. More information will be available when the call is announced in April 2020.
