Journal of Flood Risk Management transitioning to open access

The Journal of Flood Risk Management is transitioning to open access

We are pleased to announce that the Journal of Flood Risk Management will become fully open access from 01 January 2020.

The Journal of Flood Risk Management, published by John Wiley & Sons, is an online only journal providing an international platform for knowledge sharing in all areas related to flood risk. Topics include: climate change and adaptation, environment (geomorphology, sediments and habitats), policy and legislation, modelling and flood (forecasting, event management and disaster recovery).

CIWEM represents and supports a community of thousands of members and organisations in over 89 countries who are dedicated to improving water and environmental management for the benefit of the public. The transition to open access means that all articles published in the journal will be freely accessible to read, download and share.

Terry Fuller, chief executive of CIWEM, says: “as a professional body, we are committed to serving the needs of our professional and research community. We believe that the move to open access is an exciting development for Journal of Flood Risk Management and will mean that our members receive the best publishing service and the widest possible dissemination of their work.”
