In early 2012, an English-language journal namely Meteorology Hydrology and Water Management – Research and Operational Application was established. It is a peer-reviewed open access journal. No fees for publication or accessing the articles is required. The journal is published twice a year. The so called early birds/ahead of prints are constantly updated.

The Journal addresses researchers and a wide range of users with a special emphasis on national and regional meteorological and hydrological services responsible for integrated water-resources management and protecting society, economy and environment against weather, climate and water-related hazards.

The international influence both of water management and meteorological, climatologic and hydrological hazards makes one to internalize efforts concerning the conduct of scientific research, transfer of knowledge and dissemination of good practices. The aim of the Journal is to promote at an international level the results of the activities of research and development as well as benefits which can be derived from the transfer of knowledge into operational use. Furthermore, it is to focus on the decision-making concerning meteorology, hydrology and water management.

The unique role of the Journal is to provide an interdisciplinary platform exploring the needs, problems and expectations of the services responsible for meteorological and hydrological protection whereas on the other hand it is to present new theoretical insights, new directions as well as real-world case studies illustrating the practical implementations from research and development institutes.

In order to guarantee the highest international editorial standards, a procedure aimed to prevent such phenomenon like ‘ghostwriting’ and ‘quest authorship’ has been introduced. The Journal cooperates with a statistical editor who is responsible for monitoring the accuracy of the research methods applied by the authors and a linguistic editor namely a native speaker so as to ensure a high standard of linguistic correctness.

Not only has an international Advisory Board of the Journal been appointed but cooperation with foreign reviewers established as well.
We kindly invite authors to submit their work in English.
