Authors should classify their paper by using the following types, choosing one that most closely describes their paper:
Research paper: these papers are fully documented, interpreted accounts of significant findings of original
research. The maximum acceptable length of a Research Paper is 7500 words (less 350 words for each normal-
sized figure or table you include).
Suggested standard structure of the body of research manuscripts (after the Title, Abstract, Keyword, Paper type):
- Introduction, including a purpose, general structure of the paper, theoretical framework/state of research;
- Methods/Material and Methods;
- Discussion and Conclusion (might be two separate sections);
- Annex(es) (if applicable);
- List of references
Review Papers: these are critical and comprehensive reviews that provide new insights or interpretation of a subject through thorough and systematic evaluation of available evidence. They should not normally exceed 8000 words. Manuscripts exceeding 10,000 words will not be accepted for review.
Short Communications: a paper which discusses a paper previously published in "Hydrology Research" should only be submitted after consultation with one of the journal Editors.
