Interest in water in all its forms and in all its properties will continue to grow for a long time to come. It will spread over a large number of disciplines and technologies. Research into water in all its aspects has become so diverse that even those with a direct interest find it impossible to keep up with the original literature beyond a very limited range. On the other hand, scientists want to keep in touch with a wide spectrum of basic and applied research on water and the role played by aqueous solvents in physical, chemical, biological, technological and environmental processes. Water Science Reviews contains three or four critical state-of-the-art reviews of the type previously published in the seven volume work Water - A Comprehensive Treatise. Some reviews will update previously published topics, while others will feature areas of Water Sciences that have never yet been reviewed. A common focus will be the central position adopted by water in the systems and processes described. A selective bibliography will direct interested readers to the original source literature.
