The 20th anniversary of the first World Water Day is March 22nd. The United Nations has specifically highlighted the importance of this vital resource by declaring 2013 the International Year of Water Cooperation. Springer is underscoring this initiative by launching a new, interdisciplinary platform on water at springer.com/aboutwater.
Springer’s new Water Program brings together Springer publications from a wide variety of scientific disciplines. Researchers, policymakers and administrative decision makers, engineers, lawyers and water sector experts can access interdisciplinary specialist information to help them make far-reaching, sustainable decisions. The content will be drawn from more than a thousand new specialist articles from journals and books each year. The most popular water-related downloads from journals are posted on the website and can be accessed free of charge at any time. Open access articles are also clearly marked and available to anyone interested.
