IAH’s Hydrogeology Journal publisher, Springer, offers a selection of articles freely available to view and download for a limited period. Known as Editors’ Choice, the articles are chosen by the journal’s editorial team for any of several good reasons including:
- outstanding science
- innovative approach
- potentially important conclusions
- interesting ﬁeld area or phenomenon
- unusual topic
- political/social/historical/philosophical interest, etc.
This process takes place at the end of each publishing year, when a number of articles from among the year’s crop of about 160 peer-reviewed published articles are selected and made available at no cost for a limited period.
