H2Open Journal, IWA Publishing's fully Open Access journal is pleased to welcome Ashok Chapagain to its team of Editors-in-Chief. Ashok is Senior Professor at University of Free State, South Africa. He previously served as Science Director for the Water Footprint Network and Senior Water Advisor to the WWF-UK. Ashok’s extensive experience in the water sphere and dedication to Open Access will bring further breadth and drive to this latest of our Open Access initiatives. In his own words -
"Though innovation happens irrespective of power, open access to knowledge and power levels the playing field for less advantaged groups. Like all things that bear fruit, however, we must first take care to water the seeds. H2Open Journal is one such seed that grows to serve our quest for global access to high quality water-related scientific research."
