The International Soil and Water Conservation Research (ISWCR), the official journal of the World Association of Soil and Water Conservation (WASWAC), http://www.waswac.org, is a multidisciplinary journal for soil and water conservation research, practice, policy, and perspectives. This journal aims to disseminate new knowledge and promote the practice of soil and water conservation.

The scope of International Soil and Water Conservation Research includes research, strategies, and technologies for the prediction, prevention, and protection of soil and water resources. It focuses on identification, characterization, and modeling; dynamic monitoring and evaluation; assessment and management of conservation practices; and the creation and implementation of quality standards.

Examples of appropriate topical areas include (but are not limited to)

• Conservation models, tools, and technologies
• Agricultural conservation
• Soil health resources, indicators, assessment, and management
• Land degradation
• Sustainable development
• Soil erosion and its control
• Soil erosion processes
• Water resource assessment and management
• Watershed management
• Soil erosion models
• Literature reviews on topics related to soil and water conservation research

The journal International Soil and Water Conservation Research (ISWCR) is co-owned by three organizations:
  • The International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (IRTCES)
  • China Water & Power Press (CWPP)
  • China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research (IWHR)
IRTCES was jointly set up by the Government of China and UNESCO and is classed as a category II center for water issues by UNESCO. IRTCES aims to promote international exchange of knowledge and cooperative research into sedimentation problems. It also provides technical services in sediment information exchange, training on sediment engineering and consultations on sediment management, erosion control and environmental and ecological protection of watersheds.
CWPP is a national professional science and technology publishing house with a focus on water conservancy and hydropower. CWPP publishes around 1,500 publications in a range of disciplines each year, including paper books, audiobooks, journals and videos.
IWHR, under the Ministry of Water Resources of the People's Republic of China, is a national, non-profit research institution engaged in scientific research on water resources and hydropower.
