How do I proceed as a corresponding author?

In addition to stating your affiliation with Stockholm University, it is important that you use your SU email address when submitting a manuscript to an IWA journal. Upon acceptance the publisher will identify you as an SU author, qualified to publish open access free of charge.

For detailed information, please see IWA’s Institutional Waivers Guidelines

About the agreement

The agreement is a so-called “Read & Publish” agreement. The APCs are already prepaid, since the agreement includes both the costs of the library's subscriptions as well as the costs of open access publishing. In addition to Stockholm University, five other Swedish HEI’s participate in the agreement.
