The latest research results of the Department of Water Quality and Health are mainly published in international journals that conduct a peer review of quality assurance procedures. In addition, review articles are published in books and national journals which serve not only scientific experts but also authorities and interested practitioners in the water sector for information.

The Division Water Quality and Health at KL works closely with the other members of the Inter-University Cooperation Centre Water and Health (ICC Water & Health). All publications of the ICC Water & Health can be found on the website www.waterandhealth.at.
