Hybrid model Journals on Water Research
Journal of Hydrogeology and Hydrologic Engineering (JHHE) is a peer reviewed subscription based Journal which aims to publish the multi disciplinary aspects of Water Research and its related sciences. Journal of Hydrogeology and Hydrologic Engineering is a new frontier among the scientific Journals on Hydrology and Hydrogeology. Journal of Hydrogeology and Hydrologic Engineering focuses on the topics that include: Water use and Desalination, Water Quality, Water Resources, Waste water treatment, Aquifier tests, Solid and hazardous waste management, Hydrology Modelling, Stormwater Planning, Modeling and Management, Floodway Analysis, Ecohydrology, Hydroinformatics, Ground water quality & Analysis and Erosion & Sedimentation Control; and making them available online freely without any restrictions or any other subscriptions to researchers worldwide. Journal of Hydrogeology and Hydrologic Engineering (JHHE) successfully executes Hybrid model for its publications. The current scientific era’s demanding need for hybridizing Subscription and Open option has led to the emergence of SciTechnol Refereed Hybrid Journal- Journal of Hydrogeology and Hydrologic Engineering that grants various advantages to its authors as well as the subscribers. The preference of researchers/authors for their articles’ high visibility and usage, more citations, more readers and more feedback, that ultimately evaluates the h-index, has contributed significantly to the transition of SciTechnol subscription journals into Hybrid Journals. The open option thus sustains to be the mode of publication when scientific productivity and impact forms one of the loci of interest to the researchers. JHHE Hybrid model offer authors the choice of publishing their work via customary method of access to articles via subscription OR open access (making individual articles freely available online) with a fee applicable to the authors, their institutions or funders. The Hybrid Model, hence, presents the authors with two options: to pay a publication charge (open option) OR not to pay the publication charge (subscription).
