Editorial of the 26th Edition of Revista Ambiente & Água
Keywords: Environment, water, interdisciplinarity, scientific journal
AbstractIn this issue, we are pleased to announce that Revista Ambiente & Água has acted upon previous recommendations and taken all of the steps necessary to fully conform with SciELO Brazil collection requirements. Those steps included increasing the frequency of publication and broadening the editorial staff’s thematic and geographic coverage, to include augmenting the Editorial Board with professionals that have greater expertise in the life sciences and engineering of water, sanitation, environmental resources, and biological sciences. The journal was also advised, if possible, to seek professionals outside of the State of São Paulo and to increase Hispanic representation on the Editorial Board. The current issue includes 15 peer reviewed articles with “doi” registration, five in English, one in Spanish and nine in Portuguese. The articles each include an abstract in English and Portuguese, and collectively encompass a wide range of multidisciplinary subjects. We continue to promote the visibility of the articles in several search engines and academic and social networks.
