Journal of Hydraulic Structures (JHS) welcomes original contributions in different areas of hydraulics, hydraulic structures and water resources engineering. The manuscripts should be submitted via the Journal’s Submission System. In what follows, the definitions and guidelines required to submit papers are presented.
Submission declaration and verification
Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously, that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, that its publication is approved by all authors and the responsible authorities where the work was carried out, and that, if accepted, it will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language.
Language (usage and editing services)
Please write your manuscript in good English. Authors who feel their manuscript may require editing to eliminate possible grammatical or spelling errors and to conform to correct scientific English are encouraged to use the English Language Editing services and helps.
Submission to this journal proceeds totally online and you will be guided stepwise through the creation and uploading of your files. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor's decision and requests for revision, takes place by e-mail.
Please submit, with the manuscript, the names, addresses and e-mail addresses of, at least, three potential referees. Note that the editor retains the sole right to decide whether or not the suggested reviewers are used.
It is important that the file be saved in the native format of the word processor used (*.doc or *.docx).
The text should be in single-column and double spacing format. Keep the layout of the text as simple as possible.
When preparing tables, if you are using a table grid, use only one grid for each individual table and not a grid for each row. If no grid is used, use tabs, not spaces, to align columns.
Note that source files of figures, tables and text graphics will be required whether or not you embed your figures in the text. Do not place any figure or table into the body of the manuscript. You can embed them respectively in individual pages at the end of the manuscript.
To avoid unnecessary errors, you are strongly advised to use the 'spell-check' and 'grammar-check' functions of your word processor.
