Focus and Scope

Larhyss journal is an international peer-reviewed journal published quarterly by the research laboratory in subterranean and surface hydraulics since 2002.

Aims, scope, and original topics

Larhyss Journal is directed to initiate public, scientists, academic researchers, and experts in the field. The scope of the Journal covers the fields in which the teams of the research laboratory in subterranean and surface hydraulics are active. Original research papers, short communications, and critical reviews from all fields of science and engineering related to water are welcomed. Larhyss journal is devoted to the rapid publication of research in water engineering, acting as a link between the diverse research communities and practitioners in the field of hydraulics. Larhyss journal publishes articles on hydraulics, water treatment associated with statistical methods, hydraulic structures such as dams, spillways, stilling basins and ancestral hydraulic structures, Underground infrastructures such as sewerage pipes and inferoflux dams. the design, optimization of the performance and safety of hydraulic structures, coupling of hydraulic and economic models applied to development studies and risk forecasting, hydrology, hydrogeology, resource protection, pumps and pumping stations, surface and groundwater protection, free and pressurized flows in canals and conduits, the impact of climate change on water resources regarding quality and quantity, Modeling of aquifers and the transport of solutes, Hydraulic modelling. Larhyss Journal also published original articles on the siltation of dams and the mechanisms of sedimentation as well as the techniques recommended for their de-siltation, in particular the withdrawal of density currents... etc.

Larhyss Journal publishes discussions on all articles since its inception. There is no time limit for sending discussions. The article published in Larhyss Journal in the form of discussion has become essential in the dialogue between researchers. It identifies unanswered questions, describes work in progress, gives conclusions of recently completed research, describes applications of research, and reviews the state of knowledge.

The journal accepts manuscripts exclusively in English.

From the next issue of Larhyss Journal (n ° 42, June / July 2020), the scientific committee encourages the authors to write their articles in English. As the English language is currently the language of the scientific community, English should be preferred. It is an international language that will allow you to be read and through which our colleagues from around the world will understand us. The English language is, without a doubt, the language of scientific publication.

Why Larhyss Journal is different from several other journals?

Larhyss Journal is exclusively dedicated to problems related to hydraulic sciences. It is not a multidisciplinary journal as most journals are.

Larhyss Journal is not published by a classic publishing house or by an association. It is edited by a hydraulic research laboratory that is at the heart of water-related problems.

Common themes in journals dealing with water sciences are water quality, water treatment, hydrology, and hydrogeology. In addition to these themes, larhyss journal publishes articles on works that allow the treatment of water such as desalination plants which remains a means of the future account of the scarcity of ground and surface water due to climate change. Larhyss Journal has published and still publishes articles on water treatment based on local raw material which increasingly shows its effectiveness and its ability to establish itself as an essential process, especially for developing countries which have significant deposits of these local materials (bentonite, lime, clays, bio sorbents, peels of various fruits, etc.). In addition, this treatment is ecological giving it the quality of green treatment. Treatments based on local materials do not require a large investment, it is economical.

Among the favorite themes of Larhyss Journal are hydraulic works that use the capacity of water to produce energy such as hydroelectric stations. Hydroelectric energy has multiple advantages. Hydro-energy is renewable, we cannot exhaust our resources. Hydraulic energy is green and non-polluting, it is reliable, flexible, and safe.

Larhyss journal also publishes articles on hydraulic works that neutralize the harmful effects of water, such as dams and spillways of any type...

Larhyss journal is among the very few journals that publish articles on the Foggaras, these ancestral ingenious systems for collecting groundwater conveyed through underground galleries that return water for irrigation purposes, without any motorization and therefore without energy consumption. Despite advances in research on these structures, their operation and socio-economic impact have not yet revealed all their secrets. Larhyss journal continues to publish the latest developments on this topic. This is the outstanding theme of the journal given the huge number of readings to its credit.

Larhyss journal also publishes articles on the evaporation of bodies of water such as that of a dam. These studies are important as they focus on the increase in the water resource stock capacity, especially in arid or semi-arid areas. Many countries are affected by this problem. This is not often addressed by water science journals. 

Another theme that Larhyss Journal favors, and which is not covered much by other journals on water, is the impact of climate change on water resources. In addition to the environmental and health impacts, climate change is likely to cause a profound disruption of the availability of water resources affecting, consequently, many sectors such as industry, energy production, agriculture, drinking water, sanitation, etc. Regarding drinking water and sanitation, global warming negatively impacts the quantity by increasing water stress and also the quality by the multiplication of pathogens, the salinization of soils and groundwater, etc. of water resources

Larhyss journal is also different from many other journals in that it allows discussion of all of its published articles, even if these are peer-reviewed. The research is based on discussion and exchange that allow other perspectives to emerge. On the other hand, diffusion is the pivot on which this exchange should be based. Thus, Larhyss journal makes its contents visible and accessible without asking neither readers nor authors to pay. Larhyss Journal follows the sponsor-pays model, the funding of the journal is supported by a learned society, namely the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research. It is opposed to the author-pays and reader-pays models.

Peer Review Process

Peer-review policy 

The integrity of the review process depends on well-established principles and policies that aim to ensure fairness and efficiency of the evaluation. The review principles are as namely: Confidentiality, Conflicts of interest, Equity, Transparency.

Information about an individual must not be disclosed, directly or indirectly, to anyone without that individual's express consent. Information provided by authors in their applications should be protected and are made available to external reviewers for evaluation purposes only. Using this information for any other purpose violates the Privacy Act and could lead to an investigation. Reviewers are instructed to refrain from disclosing to authors or anyone outside the peer review process information related to the review of a particular application or to offer their opinion on the likelihood of success. or failure of a log. 

Larhyss Journal does everything in its power to ensure that its decisions are fair and objective by identifying and managing conflict of interest situations between an author and a reviewer. It is recalled that a conflict of interest is a conflict between the obligations and responsibilities of a participant in an evaluation process (eg an evaluator) and his private, professional, commercial, or public interests. There may be a real, apparent, or potential conflict of interest when the reviewer:

  • could receive a professional or personal advantage resulting from an item that is the subject of an evaluation;
  • maintains a professional or personal relationship with an author or the author's establishment;
  • has a direct or indirect financial interest in connection with the evaluation of an article.

A conflict of interest can be considered real or apparent when a reviewer:

  • is a relative or close friend of an author, or has a personal relationship with an author;
  • has a long-standing scientific or personal difference of opinion with an author;
  • has an affiliation with an author's establishment, organization or company (including with affiliated research institutes);
  • has a close professional affiliation with an author due to any of the following situations that have arisen in the past six years:
  • have frequent and regular interactions with an author within the framework of functions carried out within the same department, the same establishment, the same organization or the same company,
  • have been the supervisor or trainee of an author,
  • have collaborated, published or shared funds with an author or plan to do so soon or work for the establishment of the author submitting an article; or believes, for whatever reason, to be unable to perform an unbiased evaluation of the paper.

The success of the peer review system depends crucially on the willingness and ability of all reviewers: to exercise sound judgment; to be impartial and reasonable; understand the specific context of each article, while taking it into account in a balanced way; to provide a quality constructive review that assists the author by highlighting the strengths and weaknesses that contributed to the rating and ranking of the article.

Larhyss Journal ensures transparency of the evaluation through various mechanisms. All articles submitted to larhyss journal are reviewed by reviewers who perform an overall rating of each article.

Review process

Once an article is submitted to Larhyss Journal, a journal editor reviews the manuscript and decides whether or not to send it for further peer review. It is only after completing the initial selection that the manuscript is sent to one or more peer reviewers. Finally, the journal editors or journal editorial board review the reports of the peer reviewers and make the final decision to accept or reject the manuscript for publication. Some papers can be rejected before peer-review. Larhyss Journal editors reject about 45% of the submitted papers at the initial screening stage.

During the initial screening, Larhyss Journal editors mainly check the following: 

  • Does the paper fit Larhyss Journal scoop and will it be of interest to the readership?
  • Is the content and writing good enough to make the paper worth reviewing?
  • Is the paper of minimum acceptable quality?
  • Is the paper compliant with Larhyss journal instructions for authors?

It is imperative that authors write a well-written cover letter that emphasizes the importance and strength of their research and provides a good reason why the manuscript is a good fit for the journal. Editors will then review the summary and can even scan the introduction, figures, and tables, or other sections of the article to determine if the article exceeds their quality threshold.

If the paper is clearly outside the scope of the journal, a quick rejection allows the author to quickly find and submit their manuscript to another journal. Reviewers' time is wasted when they have to spend time reviewing and providing feedback on a significantly inferior manuscript.

Once the paper clears the initial screening, it is sent for peer review. The paper then undergoes a single-blind review, i.e. names of the reviewers are not revealed to the authors, i.e. the authors do not know who the reviewers are. The reviewers know who the authors are.

Editors carefully select reviewers who have sufficient subject matter expertise to do justice to the manuscript. Therefore, highly technical articles or articles in specialized fields may take longer to review, as it may take some time for editors to find suitable reviewers. Larhyss Journal does not give authors the ability to recommend favorite and non-favorite reviewers.

The peer review is complete once all reviewers send the journal a detailed report with their comments on the manuscript and their recommendations. Based on the experience gained since 2002, the review process for articles submitted to Larhyss Journal takes an average of 4 months, including the article correction process.
