SWAT Pubs Break 6,000!
31 October 2023
For several years Dr. Phil Gassman of Iowa State University has led an effort to continuously update and maintain the database of SWAT-related publications found on the SWAT website. He has just informed us that in October the number of peer-reviewed publications in the database has exceeded 6,000! Dr. Gassman’s team, which includes an undergraduate student at ISU, is still updating the database for 2022 and 2023. He anticipates that the final count for 2022 will exceed 600, which reflects an ongoing trend that began almost a decade ago of SWAT publications exceeding “one per day”. Also, it is quite likely that some SWAT-related publications from earlier years have been missed, especially if they were not published in English. In addition, Dr. Gassman reports that almost 900 journals are currently represented in the database! What a record! Congratulations and thanks to all SWAT users and developers for helping make SWAT the most widely used model of its kind worldwide!
Please consider uploading citation data from published, peer-reviewed articles that you have co-authored, after confirming that the article has not already been indexed in the database. There is an increasing need for members of the global user community to participate in the process of uploading citation data, to maintain the long-term viability of the database.
Congratulations and thanks to all SWAT users and developers for helping make SWAT the most widely used model of its kind worldwide!
