EIFL has signed a Read & Publish agreement with IWA Publishing – the publishing arm of the International Water Association – to provide free access to their 10 pay-walled journals for libraries as well as free open access publishing for corresponding authors in their 15 fully open access and hybrid journals covering water, wastewater and related environmental fields. The agreement is valid until December 31, 2023.
Libraries in 26 countries are eligible for free access to the 10 paywalled journals published by IWA Publishing: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Congo (DR), Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Lesotho, Malawi, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, North Macedonia, Moldova, Senegal, Sudan, Uganda, Uzbekistan, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe.
In addition, corresponding authors from these countries can publish their articles in open access for free in the 15 hybrid or fully open access journals without any Article Processing Charges (APCs). Recognition of authors will be automatic when they submit an article to an IWA Publishing journal.
The agreement is the result of collaboration with Information Power to explore the potential for open access agreements with society publishers.
