Presented by Fabio Pulizzi, Chief Editor, Nature Water

Fabio PulizziWater resources are at the heart of human civilization. Throughout history, societies have progressed by improving access to clean water for drinking, for sanitation and for agriculture as well as by removing contaminants from water to reduce the effects on the environment and to improve public health. Modern society faces new challenges that will require innovative approaches to our relationship with water. Climate change affects the water systems by increasing droughts and floods, which in turn reduce water availability, increase contamination of water resources and eventually affect both drinking and sanitation facilities. The steady increase in the global population generates more stress on water resources and challenges for public health.

Nature Water will cover all aspects related to the interaction between water and society. Broadly, the journal will include a wide range of topics that include aspects of natural sciences (primarily earth and environmental science) engineering (including environmental, civil, chemical and materials) and social sciences (economy, human geography and sociology among others), with several topics presenting aspects of more than one area. In my presentation, I will discuss my vision of the journal, placing in the context of other Nature publications and other journals in the water sphere. I shall discuss in more details the topics we’d be covering and what we would look for in submitted manuscript.
