Journal AWWA unveils new look and name

(DENVER)—The American Water Works Association (AWWA) has unveiled an updated look and new name for its flagship publication, Journal AWWA, which has served as the voice of the water sector since 1914.

New features in the print and online editions of Journal AWWA are designed to provide quicker and easier scanning, including larger photographs, a two-column format, information charts and tables, and more white space. The aim is to make the magazine more readable and visually appealing.

In addition to updating its look, AWWA updated the publication’s name to Journal AWWA, replacing Journal – American Water Works Association.

Journal AWWA will continue to be one of the primary means for the Association to communicate current water issues as well as their potential solutions,” stated Ken Mercer, Journal AWWA’s editor-in-chief.

“It provides a valuable forum for thought and practice leaders in the water sector,” he added. “The entire sector benefits from the free flow of information, and the cycle of continuous improvement in the water industry relies on the continuous dissemination of new knowledge and research.”

At the beginning of 2019, AWWA introduced a new online research journal, AWWA Water Science. The continuously published journal features peer-reviewed content focusing on the fundamental principles and innovations to water works and water supplies.

At that time, Journal AWWA transitioned to water-related content including feature articles, columns and news. AWWA’s third periodical, Opflow, features new and established technologies in water and wastewater operations.
