Publication partnership with Wiley leads to increased reach and access of Journal AWWA
(DENVER) – The American Water Works Association today announced that Journal - American Water Works Association has expanded its reach to more than 100 developing countries through Research4Life.

Research4Life is a collection of programs that provides research communities in developing countries with affordable access to academic and professional content.

This advancement is a result of AWWA’s publishing partnership with John Wiley and Sons Inc., which was recently established to increase the reach and access of Journal AWWA and Opflow’s technical content.

“With our vision of ‘A Better World Through Better Water’, we are focused on developing valuable content to many different audiences worldwide, especially those in need of scientific and technical assistance for safe water,” said David LaFrance, AWWA’s chief executive officer. “Research4Life does life-saving work, and through it we are glad for the opportunity to share our solutions to effectively treat and manage water.”

AWWA and Wiley’s partnership began with the January 2018 issues of Journal AWWA and Opflow. Wiley oversees the production and distribution of both publications in print and online, and manages and sells paid subscriptions to both periodicals.
