January 2017 message from Prof. Miriam Balaban, Editor-in-Chief
As we look forward to the new year, our journal Desalination and Water Treatment is pleased to have welcomed many authors from over 90 countries around the world whose research has been published in about 80,000 pages since 2009. We welcome the many new papers arriving daily and strive to give authors fair and constructive reviews. Our Impact Factor continues to grow and harbors the greatest number of citations to the journal Desalination, now in its 50th year, adding to its impact.

We have enjoyed friendly collaboration with Taylor & Francis for the past 5 years, but since T&F is now changing its policy to obligatory Open Access (OA) for all authors at a cost of 740 euros, now Desalination Publications will again be the sole publisher of the journal and continue with its Hybrid Open Access (HOA) policy where OA is available but not obligatory.

Starting on April 1, 2017 there will be no submission fee, but a publication fee of 120 euros for accepted papers only (affecting papers submitted after March 31, 2017).

We have lowered the institutional subscription rate significantly (by 40%) and hope this will make the journal more accessible to a still wider readership and ensure sustainability of the journal. We appeal to all authors and readers, institutions, societies and companies to encourage their libraries to take advantage of this very significant reduction and enable us to continue to serve the community interested in desalination and water treatment without high costs to authors and a lower cost to institutions.

Please let us know your library’s contact information or that of their subscription agent so that we can make them an offer.

You can continue to view abstracts freely on www.deswater.com and Contents Alerts will be sent regularly to a wide community in our field.
