IWA Publishing Announces ‘Read & Publish’ Deal with IHE Delft
IWA Publishing is delighted to announce today the signing of our first non-consortia Read & Publish agreement with the IHE Delft Institute for Water Education in the Netherlands. The three-year agreement will grant full access to the IWA Publishing journal portfolio and unlimited Open Access publication for affiliated authors from 2020.
Article Processing Charges associated with accepted manuscripts will be automatically waived for corresponding authors affiliated with IHE Delft. Eligible authors wishing to take advantage of the fee-waiver for OA publishing in IWA Publishing journals have only to submit their manuscript using their university e-mail address and including their institutional affiliation.
IWA Publishing is actively forging new paths towards Open Access from transitioning journals to fully OA, launching new OA titles and pursuing strategic partnerships with institutions to enable our authors to publish OA as seamlessly as possible. This latest deal with the Netherland’s leading water-focused research institution is particularly exciting as a first step in forging partnerships on an institution by institutions basis.
Rod Cookson, Managing Director of IWA Publishing says, “IHE Delft is a global centre of research excellence. We are delighted to provide Open Access publication for all of its staff in IWA Publishing journals, along with access to our complete portfolio of journals.”
