The International Journal for Water Equity and Justice (IJWEJ)

Previously known as the Journal of Gender and Water

Introducing the International Journal for Water Equity and Justice (IJWEJ)

Over the past decade, The Journal of Gender and Water (wH2O) has presented critical work at the intersection of global water and gender challenges, playing an integral role in advancing the conversation on this topic. With over 28,000 downloads from 183 countries, the journal's growth is a testament to its continuity and consistency, as well as the significance of its subject matter.

We are excited to share with our readers and authors that wH2O has undergone a comprehensive rebranding effort. The journal's new name, The International Journal for Water Equity and Justice (IJWEJ), reflects a broader mission to advance scholarship and work that promotes not only gender equity, but also expands its scope to include issues around equitable access to water resources and environmental justice. The reimagined journal addresses topics such as water policy, governance, sustainable water management, and the intersection of water and social justice. IJWEJ aims to create conditions for innovation, catalyze theoretical and applied research, and serve as a platform for exchange of information to solve critical water problems. The journal will include original contributions, research, analysis, review, and commentary, as well as multimodal publications such as photo essays and videos.

We are committed to publishing rigorous and impactful scholarship as well as content that is relevant to scholars, policymakers, practitioners, and newcomers alike. We seek to bring forward the voices of practitioners, and to amplify the voices of the unheard, including marginalized communities, such that their input and engagement may result in better and more sustainable solutions to global, regional, and local water issues.

We believe that this rebranding effort will help us better serve our audience and advance our mission of promoting water equity and justice globally. We look forward to receiving your submissions and continuing to work with you to promote this important cause.
