We are actively seeking scientists to engage with Freshwater Science! 

Join the Review Board

The Freshwater Science Review Board is a new opportunity to engage in meaningful peer review for our society journal, and for early career members to learn about the peer review process, develop reviewing skills, and gain insights about publishing. Members will agree to conduct timely peer reviews of no more than three papers per calendar year. Applications due by September 1, 2024

Apply to be an Associate Editor

We are expanding the Freshwater Science Editorial Board to align with the disciplinary breadth of the society as well as to increase the diversity of backgrounds, geographies, and career stages of AEs. This is an excellent opportunity to develop or build your editorial experiences. Applications due by August 15, 2024

Submit your papers and read the journal! 

Our non-profit society journal is a great venue to publish your work. Our Endowed Publication Fund also can provide assistance with costs associated with publication in Freshwater Science
