Instructions for authors

Journal of Irrigation Sciences and Engineering (JISE) is an open access, double blind peer-reviewed journal and publishes original scientific-research papers and high quality review papers on all aspects of water sciences.

All contributions are refereed without exception. The authors will be informed if their papers are not accepted or if they need to be revised. The editors reserve the right to edit contributions wherever necessary and to refuse papers that are deemed not in line with current research. Linguistic corrections not affecting the meaning will be made by the editors.

Article-processing charges consist of two following parts:

Manuscript Review Fee (Preliminary): 500000 Rls (in Iranian Currency)

Manuscript Acceptance Fee (Final): 1000000 Rls (in Iranian Currency)


The Journal of Irrigation Sciences and Engineering (JISE) welcomes articles for publication subject to the following conditions:

 Articles will be accepted in Persian with their extended abstracts in English.

 Paper submission to this journal is via "electronic submission", containing word and pdf files.

  •  The article should be typed, in “word” software.
  •  The texts (including those for tables, graphs, and headings) should be typed with double spaces. Enough margin should be left on either side of the page and all charts and tables should be numbered.
  •   The title of the article should be concise but expressive.
  •   The charts, graphs, and tables must be of good quality in Persian language so that they can directly be used for print. Every figure should have a numbered caption and every table should have a numbered heading (or title) in Persian language. These must be sufficiently informative.
  •  The list of references should be in English language and in alphabetical order. Each reference must include name of the author, journal volume, year of publication and page number as the forms of below:
