IWA Publishing Open Access Statement

IWA Publishing spreads knowledge about the world’s most valuable resource – water.

We are committed to the rapid and global dissemination of high quality research and practice, through Open Access (OA) and other means. In this way, we seek to maximise the impact and influence of our books and articles.

  • We pledge to maintain high ethical standards related to all aspects of the publication process, to provide a personable service to our authors, editors, and reviewers, and to aim towards the most effective propagation of our publications.
  • We strive towards fair, transparent and sustainable Open Access models. We support the archiving of scholarly content and the accessibility of relevant data and datasets. We pledge to continuously reassess our publishing fees to ensure they are fair and affordable.
  • We believe that anyone should be able to publish OA, regardless of status, geographical location or institutional affiliation. As such, we are committed to assisting our authors to overcome barriers to the publication of their work OA.

As we work towards these aims, we welcome feedback and suggestions. We constantly seek ways to work more closely with relevant partners to further our OA mission. Please sbosshart [at] iwap [dot] co [dot] uk (contact us) if you would like to learn more about our approach to OA or would like to explore opportunities for collaboration.
