An overview of the Ambiente & Agua journal nine years after its inception

Getulio Teixeira Batista


After nine years of continuous on-time publication, we thought it appropriate in this editorial to review some of the journal’s accomplishments. To date, we have published 27 issues, on schedule, totaling 440 articles selected out of 1093 submissions. All of the articles have been peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. Our average overall rejection rate is 60%, and this trend is steadily increasing due to the more stringent standards applied as the journal interfaces with various databases and indices, and also due to the increasing number of submissions we receive as the journal achieves greater prominence and recognition. The journal’s system currently includes 1,904 registered users, 682 of which are members of our ad hoc peer reviewers’ panel. Our Editorial Committee was recently augmented with the addition of outstanding scientists from the European Community, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America, and it continues to grow. In recent years we have been publishing about 60 articles per year. All of the articles have doi™ registration with CrossRef, which enhances their accessibility and visibility through interaction with many indices and publication search engines. We promote the visibility of the articles in many venues throughout the world and more recently in academic and social networks. Another major accomplishment was the recent inclusion of the journal in distinguished collections such as SciELO and SCOPUS.
