Submission Instructions

The Watershed Science Bulletin accepts article submissions on a rolling basis. The Bulletin is written for the diverse audience of watershed and stormwater practitioners. Articles selected for publication should illustrate practical, science-based solutions to water resource problems and may include research studies, literature reviews, case studies and discussion papers. Several suggested article themes are provided below as examples:

  • Structural and non-structural stormwater control practices
  • Watershed assessment and planning
  • Pollutant source identification and tracking
  • Monitoring and modeling
  • Water regulations, such as TMDLs, MS4 permits, and wetlands
  • Climate change and water resources
  • Economics and financing for stormwater and watershed plans and implementation
  • Education and outreach on water resources

Selected articles will undergo peer-review by the Editorial Committee, who will recommend articles for publication based on their quality, presentation of original information, and ability to further the mission of the journal. Note that acceptance for review does not guarantee that the article will be published. Each author will receive a complimentary one-year subscription to the Center’s Online Watershed Library, where they will have access to their published article.

To submit an article, email your manuscript as a Microsoft Word document to bulletin@cwp.org. Articles should be 5,000 words or less in length and follow the basic style rules provided below. If the document file size exceeds 20 MB (or the file size limit of your email server), please submit the graphics in separate emails.
