Submission Guidelines

We obtain most of our content by direct invitation. We also accept unsolicited contributions, and will provide as timely a response as possible. The Water Institute publishes three types of articles in our Magazine:

  • Op-ed: opinion pieces for the informed, non-expert audience.  1000-1500 words.
  • Report: summaries of scientific or technical information for the informed, non-expert audience. 1000-2000 words.
  • Notes from the Field: anecdotal personal reflection pieces of the author’s real life experiences.  500-1000 words.

Submissions should be sent to  in a ".doc" format.  An author's profile photo, brief biography, and at least one relevant image with accompanying caption are required.
