How are manuscripts selected for the Journal of South Carolina Water Resources?

Upon submitting manuscripts for their conference presentation, presenters may request consideration for the next issue of the journal. The journal editorial committee will select up to a dozen and invite the authors to submit a full article for a 3-step review process. The invitation does not mean the article will be published, as there will be a 3-step review process all articles must pass through. The journal is an annual publication. In odd years, it will feature select manuscripts from the previous year's conference. In even years, the issue will feature articles submitted through an open call with a theme focus.
