by Debbie

The library has recently subscribed to the following journal titles relating to environmental technology. All are accessible via the library catalogue.

IET renewable power generation
Available from: Vol. 1 (2007) onwards
Access: IP controlled
Published by: The Institution of Engineering and Technology

Blurb about this title:

IET Renewable Power Generation is a new journal from the IET bringing together the topics of renewable energy technology, power generation and systems integration. Other technologies having a direct role in sustainable power generation such as fuel cells and energy storage will also be covered, as will system control approaches such as demand side management, that facilitate the integration of renewable sources into power systems, both large and small. Specific technology areas covered by the journal include: wind power technology and systems; photovoltaics; solar thermal power generation; geothermal energy; fuel cells; wave power; marine current energy; biomass conversion

The ISME Journal: Multidisciplinary Journal of Microbial Ecology
Available from: Vol. 1 (2007) onwards
Access: IP controlled. Also available via Athens
Published by: Nature Publishing on behalf of the International Society for Microbial Ecology

Blurb about this title:

The The ISME Journal seeks to promote diverse and integrated areas of microbial ecology spanning the breadth of microbial life, including bacteria, archaea, microbial eukaryotes, and viruses. Contributions of broad biological interest and impact are especially encouraged.

Journal of the American Water Resources Association
Available from: Vol. 33 (1997) onwards
Access: IP controlled. Also available via Athens
Published by: Blackwell Publishing

Blurb about this title:

The Journal of the American Water Resources Association (JAWRA) is dedicated to publishing original papers characterized by their broad approach to water resources issues. JAWRA seeks to be the preeminent scholarly publication on multidisciplinary water resources issues. Effectively managing water resources requires a broad understanding of many concepts and their applications, as plans based on a single outlook – only engineering, only biology, only economics, or only law – tend to have unhappy outcomes. Success requires work of high quality coming from a variety of perspectives. JAWRA articles present ideas derived from multiple disciplines woven together to give insight into a critical water issue. Other types of articles are those based primarily upon a single discipline with important applications to other disciplines. Papers often cover the topics of recent AWRA conferences such as riparian ecology, geographic information systems (GIS), adaptive management, and water policy.

Please also note that ENDS Environmental Daily has changed its name and is now ENDS Europe Daily
