IWA Publishing is excited to announce that through our recent partnership with Knowledge Unlatched (KU), a library crowd-funding initiative, we have made 14 of our books Open Access. Titles are available to download for free on the IWA Publishing website, the KU platform and the Directory of Open Access Books. Among the titles are two new releases including Clean Water Using Solar and Wind and Water, Energy, and Environment (full list and hyperlinks available below).

Author and Professor Emeritus at Lund University, Gustaf Olsson says “I am particularly happy that Clean Water Using Solar and Wind will become openly available to students in low-income countries and hope it will inspire them to make a difference in their part of the world.”

Allan Hoffman, author and Professor Emeritus at University of Washington, adds "Water and energy issues are inextricably linked. Providing clean water requires energy and providing clean energy reduces energy's environmental impacts. Both are essential to long-term global sustainable development. Making Water, Energy, and Environment - A Primer available as an Open Access document ensures that people all over the world will be able to gain an understanding of these critical global issues, their interdependencies, and the energy revolution that is unfolding rapidly in the early years of the 21st century."

Philipp Hess, Publisher Relations at Knowledge Unlatched says “Our KU Select book program is designed to support scholarly communication all over the world by eliminating the barrier of accessibility for research output. Being able to support science in various regions of the world that wouldn’t have had access otherwise is really great for us to see.”

IWA Publishing would particularly like to thank the various international libraries who pledged to support the transition of these seminal water titles to Open Access.
