Open Access Books: Supporting SDG 16

Research on Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions can have a huge impact on policy as a book. Books—more than journal articles—often form the basis for governmental and non-governmental organization policy approaches.

A book can reach those key people. And open access (OA) books can have the widest possible reach. Anyone, anywhere with an Internet connection can read OA books. Below, you’ll find a list of OA books on SDG 16, Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions that show what publishing an OA book can mean.
