Where can I find Instructions for Authors?
Instructions for authors for each of the journals can be found via the “For Authors” menu.
Why do we ask you to transfer copyright?
There are a number of reasons for this:
i. our ownership of copyright will ensure maximum international protection against infringement, libel or plagiarism;
ii. it will enable us to deal efficiently with requests from third parties to reproduce or reprint the article, or part of it, and to do so in accordance with a general policy that is sensible both to any relevant changes in international copyright legislation and to the general desirability of encouraging the dissemination of knowledge
In assigning your copyright you will not be forfeiting your proprietary rights, including your patent and trademark rights to any process or procedure described in the paper. More information about the author’s rights can be found on our Rights and Permissions page.

How do I obtain permission to use work that has previously been published?
Please contact us if you have a request to reprint part or all of any work previously published in an IWA Publishing book or journal.
Please give as much detail as possible about the previously published work and the new work it is to appear in. Where applicable, a fee maybe charged for the reuse of this material, but permission is not normally withheld. More information about permissions can be found on our Rights and Permissions page.
How can I buy a single article online?
If you would like to access a paper from an IWA Publishing journal to which you do not have a subscription you can view and download the PDF of the paper using our pay per view option. The price of single articles in IWA Publishing journals is $38, payable via a simple secure credit card transaction.
To access a paper on a pay per view basis simply search or browse through the online contents lists of the relevant journal and click on the “Add to cart” button.
Access to the full text of IWA Publishing online journals is otherwise restricted to subscribers. This is done by restricting the IP (Internet) addresses that are able to access the full journal.

Can I order offprints of my article?
Upon publication, authors receive a pdf of the final version of their paper. Authors can also purchase printed offprints of journal articles, using an offprint order form that is sent to the corresponding author of each article upon request.
Can I order reprints of previously published articles?
Reprints of published articles can be ordered from the Editorial Office. Please send an email, specifying the number you require and where they are to be delivered. You will then receive an individual quote.
