Instructions for Authors
Journal of Hydrology and Hydromechanics publishes original research papers, short communications, technical notes, and reviews that deal with hydrology and hydromechanics and are of general interest. Short communications may be used for hot topics and discoveries that advance understanding considerably. Technical notes are short articles that give a brief description of a specific development, technique or procedure. Review articles should be submitted only after agreement with the editor. The scope of hydrology encompasses biohydrology, catchment hydrology and vadose zone hydrology, primarily of temperate zone. Hydromechanics covers theoretical, experimental and computational hydraulics and fluid mechanics in various fields, two- and multiphase flows, including non-Newtonian flow and new frontiers in hydraulics.
Manuscripts (with maximum size of 5 MB) should be addressed to Dr. Ľubomír Lichner, Institute of Hydrology SAS, Račianska 75, 831 02 Bratislava, Slovakia; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The journal does not have article submission charges. Articles not exceeding 3 printed pages for short communication or technical note or 8 printed pages for original research paper or review are published free of article processing charge. There are approximately 7,000 characters (with spaces) per printed page. For papers requiring additional pages (except for the solicited papers), the authors will be charged 82.50 € per additional printed page. Additional costs of 165 € total will be charged for colour figures in the printed version. The authors can present the appendices, additional figures, photos, etc. as a “Supplementary Material” at the Journal website free of charge.
Manuscripts should be prepared as Microsoft Word file with numbered lines and pages, paper size A4 (297 mm x 210 mm), font type Times New Roman, font size 12, double-spaced with margins of 25 mm. Manuscripts should be written in English. Authors who are unsure of correct English usage should have their manuscript reviewed for clarity by a colleague whose native language is English or seek help at a professional English writing and editing service.
Manuscripts should begin with a concise but informative title followed by the names of all authors with first name given in full for each author and the affiliations of the authors (without abbreviations) including complete postal addresses. Telephone and fax numbers (with country and area code) as well as e-mail address of the corresponding author should be presented in the next line. The abstract not exceeding 200 words should state briefly the purpose of the research, the principal results and major conclusions. Keywords, placed immediately after the abstract, should provide a maximum of 6 key words, which reflect the scientific content of the paper. The introduction should state the objectives of the work and provide an adequate background. Material and methods should provide sufficient detail to allow the work to be reproduced. Methods already published should be indicated by a reference: only relevant modifications should be described. A Theory section can be added when the authors propose new theories and solutions. Results should be clear and concise. Discussion should explore the significance of the results, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. The main conclusions of the study may be presented in Conclusions section. Acknowledgements should be assembled in a separate section at the end of the article before the references.
Figures should be informative, attractive and readable. Make sure that the caption can be understood without the need for undue reference to the text. Put each Figure together with the figure caption on a separate page. Every Figure must be referred to in the text and numbered using Arabic numerals consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Figures must be submitted in sizes that do not exceed size A4 (297 mm x 210 mm). For photographs use a minimum of 300 dpi. Numbers, letters, and symbols inscribed must be sufficiently large such that they are at least 1 mm high in final printed form.
Prepare Tables separately from the text and put each on a separate page with its heading and with double spacing if there is room. Make sure that the table heading can be understood without the need for undue reference to the text. Every Table must be referred to in the text and numbered using Arabic numerals consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Footnotes to a table should be indicated by superscript lower-case letters and typed directly under the table.
Only units of the SI and those units recognized for use with the SI should be used to express the values of quantities. Standardized quantity symbols are used. Similarly, standardized mathematical signs and symbols are used. A space or half-high dot is used to signify the multiplication of units. A solidus (i.e., slash) or negative exponent is used to signify the division of units. The solidus must not be repeated on the same line unless parentheses are used. Variables and quantity symbols are in italic type. Unit symbols and numbers are in roman type. There is a space between the numerical value and unit symbol.
Text: Citations may be made directly or parenthetically. Groups of references should be listed first alphabetically, then chronologically. Examples: ... by Lukerchenko et al. (2009), Ruch and Harum (2009), and Warren (2003), or: ... (Lukerchenko et al., 2009; Novák, 2012; Ruch and Harum, 2003).
List: References should be arranged first alphabetically and then further sorted chronologically if necessary. More than one reference from the same author(s) in the same year must be identified by the letters "a", "b", "c", etc., placed after the year of publication. Examples:
