We are pleased to announce that Professor Arjen Y. Hoekstra has been appointed as Editor-in-Chief of Water (ISSN 2073-4441). His appointment starts from April 2016.
Arjen Hoekstra (1967) is Professor in Water Management at the University of Twente. Hoekstra was the first to quantify the water volumes virtually embedded in trade, thus showing the relevance of a global perspective on water use and scarcity. As creator of the water footprint concept, Hoekstra introduced supply-chain thinking in water management. Hoekstra is founder of the Water Footprint Network, was the organization's first Science Director and is now Chair of its Supervisory Board. Hoekstra's scientific publications cover a wide range of topics related to water management and include a large number of highly cited articles and book chapters. His books were translated into several languages and include The Water Footprint of Modern Consumer Society (Routledge, 2013), The Water Footprint Assessment Manual (Earthscan, 2011), Globalization of Water (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008) and Perspectives on Water (International Books, 1998).
We would like to warmly welcome Professor Hoekstra as Editor-in-Chief and look forward to his contributing to the continued success of Water.
We are pleased to announce that the journals Axioms, Behavioral Sciences, Photonics, Separations and Toxics were recently accepted for inclusion in the newly launched Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) in Web of Science.
ESCI serves to highlight promising journals which are still under consideration for the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) or the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI).
The Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE), Social Sciences Citation Index
(SSCI), and Web of Science™ (WoS) are Thomson Reuters products.
We are excited to announce the opening of our new editorial office in Barcelona, Spain. The launch team is led by a Senior Editor and comprises further staff holding doctoral degrees with several years of research experience. The new editorial team will help us to get closer to European research communities and progress Sciforum, the platform to support the scientific community via conference hosting and other functions. They will also help spread the word about Open Access and meet academics at scientific events.
