IWA Publishing is working on a number of initiatives to increase global access to important water research through Open Access. As part of this initiative, we have partnered with Knowledge Unlatched (KU), a library-crowd funding initiative, to raise funds to transition some of our most globally relevant papers to Open Access (OA).
Thanks to KU and the generous support of 49 library partners, we will be making a total of 16 papers Open Access in our Journal of Water & Health and 11 papers OA in our Journal of Water, Sanitation & Hygiene for Development over the course of 2019.
Papers to be made OA are selected by the Chief Editors of the journals based on their broad-scale importance to the water community and their potential interest to researchers in the developing world.
The first round of papers are now available as OA and can be accessed via the following links:
