Springer launches new water platform to mark World Water Day
The new Water Program contains comprehensive scientific information from all water-related disciplines, such as hydrology, water resources, water quality, water pollution, health, water industry and technology, water policy, water administration, and water management.
Springer launched an Energy Program, along the same lines as the Water Program, in 2011 at springer.com/energy. A Climate Program is scheduled to be launched in April, thus completing Springer’s interdisciplinary portfolio.
