Key Hurricane & Flooding-Related Papers Now Open Access

In the wake of Hurricane Irma, we’ve selected key papers from across our publishing portfolio to make Open Access for the remainder of the 2017 Atlantic hurricane season. We believe that the open sharing of relevant research will accelerate the pace of discovery and ultimately lead to more timely and effective risk reduction and relief response in the future. 

The following papers are now free-to-access until November 17:

The response to hurricane Wilma. Lessons learned by the water and sanitation services in Cancun

Water-related disaster risk reduction (DRR) management in the United States: floods and storm surges

Uncertainty-based flood resiliency evaluation of wastewater treatment plants

Resilient urban water supply: preparing for the slow-moving consequences of climate change

Water-related disaster risk reduction: time for preventive action! Position paper of the High Level Experts and Leaders Panel (HELP) on water and disasters

You can also access any papers – at any time – from the archives of our Journal of Water and Health, including this one:

Health impact of water and sanitation infrastructure reconstruction programmes in eight Central American communities affected by Hurricane Mitch
