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

Aims and scope

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 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 quality, water treatment, hydraulic structures, hydrology, hydrogeology, water resource protection, pumps and pumping stations, surface and groundwater protection.

The journal accepts manuscripts in English or French and publishes abstracts in both official languages.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.



 To ensure a peer who is the fairest possible process, every effort must be provided to protect the anonymity of authors towards the reviewers and vice versa. As such, the authors, editors and reviewers (who upload documents in the context of evaluation) must ensure that the following steps have been observed in relation to the properties of text and file:

 The authors of the papers have their names removed from the text, using "Author" and year instead of complete data (names of authors, titles of articles, etc..) In footnotes and in the bibliography page.

For MS Office documents, the author must eliminate its identity properties file (see under File in Word), by clicking on the following commands: File> Save As ... > Tools (or, on the Mac, Options ...)> Security> Remove personal information from file when recording> Save (or OK).

With documents. Pdf, the authors' names should be removed from properties, you can find the file in Adobe Acrobat main menu.


This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.


This journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration. More...
