Journal of Hydraulic Research: A renewed vision


Journal of Hydraulic Research in numbers

JHR is the flagship journal of IAHR. Now, we embark on a new journey with a renewed focus on innovation, emerging fields and quality content.  

Prof. Panayiotis (Panos) Diplas has been appointed as the new editor of the Journal of Hydraulic Research (JHR) from January 2024 replacing Mohamed Ghidaoui who has served in this role for the last seven years.

Shaping knowledge   

The new editorial team's top priority is to maintain and further enhance the quality and reputation of the Journal of Hydraulic Research. The team will strive to expeditiously disseminate the results of basic, applied and translational research that represent the latest significant developments in the broad landscape of hydraulic and hydro-environmental engineering. Submissions from interdisciplinary efforts will be encouraged, new and emerging fields will be promoted, and innovative and unconventional applications. The new editorial team intent, consistent with that declared in the editorial of JHR's inaugural issue in 1963, is to support the community of researchers and practitioners who work with some of the most critical and challenging engineering problems of our time.   

About Prof. Panayiotis Diplas 

Over his many years in academia, Prof. Diplas has taught at Lehigh University, Virginia Tech and National Technical University of Athens, Greece. He also did postdoctoral work at the University of Iowa and the University of Canterbury, New Zealand, and a sabbatical at the University of Minnesota. In 1999, he founded the Baker Environmental Hydraulics Laboratory and served as its director for 14 years. His current/recent research activities focus on sediment transport and river mechanics, resilient infrastructure, stream restoration, wetland hydrodynamics, ecological hydraulics, sustainable development, and marine hydrokinetic energy generation. His work has been recognized by several awards, including the Presidential Young Investigator Award from NSF, the Hans Albert Einstein Award, the Hunter Rouse Hydraulic Engineering Award, and the Karl Emil Hilgard Hydraulic Prize from ASCE. 

"It is indeed a privilege to take on the role of the next Editor of the Journal of Hydraulic Research. Together with a high quality and experienced Editorial Board, will make every effort to contribute to the reputation of this journal and serve the scientific community in the broad landscape of hydro-environmental engineering".
