(RS) is an international journal that integrates landscape, catchment and human perspectives into a holistic view of river systems. It is dedicated to promoting innovative basic research results and their application in management and conservation. Interdisciplinary research on rivers from the catchment and landscape perspectives is particularly welcome. River Systems
thus bridges the gap between inter- and transdisciplinary research and highlights management applications and science implementation at multiple temporal and spatial scales. An innovation of River Systems
is the inclusion of relevant science education cooperations. River Systems
is a relaunch of the Large Rivers, Supplement to Archiv für Hydrobiologie
. The language of the journal is English.
