Water Biology & Security is an open access journal publishing original, high-quality research on all aspects of water biology relating to aquatic organisms and water security. Manuscripts should present high-impact, cutting-edge research, new discoveries or developments with global impact. Following a rigorous peer-review process, manuscripts will be selected based on their broad interest to the field and their insightful and elegant conclusions/results. They will be presented using the highest-quality production standards. The aim of this journal is to provide maximum access to top aquatic science.

Scope includes, but is not limited to:

  • Basic biology of aquatic organisms
  • Genetics, cell biology and developmental biology of aquatic organisms
  • Aquatic biotechnology and aquaculture research
  • Physiology, pathology, immunology, and medicine research relating to aquatic organisms
  • Aquatic biodiversity and conservation research
  • Water ecology and environmental science research
  • Aquatic toxicology, pollution, water environment protection and ecological safety research
  • Multi-decadal studies of aquatic & marine ecosystems or biota
  • Research highlighting the effects of landscape and land use on water bodies
  • Research on springs, streams, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, wetlands, riparian zones, estuaries and marine systems
  • Aquatic product nutrition & safety
  • Water resource policy and management
