Call for papers - Advancing Socio-Hydrology / Coupled Human-Water Systems
Friday, January 11, 2019 03:40 PM
Are you a social scientist working on water-related issues?  Do you want your research to reach beyond social science?  Please consider submitting your work to a special issue of the Hydrological Sciences Journal.

I am part of a team of guest editors representing multiple disciplines in an effort to push the boundaries of interdisciplinary water research. 

Brief background: Socio-hydrology is an emerging interdisciplinary area focused on the interactions between humans/social systems and water/hydrological systems.  Hydrological Sciences Journal is the official journal of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), a global network of over 8,000 water scientists in 200 countries.  There is much interest in social science research among the water science community, and the IAHS in particular.  The current research initiative of the IAHS for this scientific decade (2013-2022) is "Panta Rhei - Everything Flows: Change in Hydrology and Society.”  Through this initiative, there are extensive efforts in the water science community to integrate insights from social science in order to address, ameliorate, and solve persistent social/water challenges.

Submit to the special issue after discussing your abstract with me (sociology guest editor) or one of the other topical editors if your work more closely aligns with another area.
