Academic Book Week (#AcademicBookWeek) is a celebration of the diversity, variety and influence of academic books throughout history run by the Booksellers Association, returning for a fifth year from 9-13 March 2020.
The theme for 2020 focuses on the environment, a topic which strongly aligns with Springer Nature's commitment to supporting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We aim to share the discoveries that address the world’s challenges of sustainable development, which is more easily achievable through publishing open research.
Open access books are easy to find and share, allowing for researchers to increase the real-world impact of their work. Here is a curated collection of environment-related open access books selected by our editors. These titles are available for download free-of-charge, in perpetuity.
Read our author interviews to find out how open access has helped these researchers to achieve their goals.
