Re: A core WASH library for students/graduate students - key WASH journals

Hey Dan,
This is a fantastic list and an even better idea and initiative. Hope it will be available to others outside of UNC as well. 
I am curious how journals that include WASH at intersections of various disciplines or research areas (say planning, public policy, governa chemistry, etc) will be included. 

Some journals where I have accessed papers include:
  • Desalination 
  • Journal of Environmental Management
  • Journal of clean environment
  • Utilities policy
  • Frontiers of Environmental science and engineering 
  • Environment and urbanisation 
This is just of the head, I am sure the list is likely much longer. 

Regards

Hi Dan,
On which website will this list be placed? Or maybe it'll be a Google doc? Please share the link in this thread so that future readers can easily find it again. 
Thanks,
