Open Climate Collection
The MIT Press presents the Open Climate Collection, a curated reading list of open access books and journals that expands our understanding of climate change and environmental studies, in support of the Open Climate Campaign. Climate change is one of the world's most pressing challenges and access to multidisciplinary, trustworthy research is imperative for scientists, policymakers, and citizens alike.
"If we are going to solve these global challenges, the knowledge (research, data, educational resources, software) about them must be open."

"Open access must be the future of academic publishing. . . I applaud MIT Press for pioneering in open access, in cooperation with its participating libraries, and am delighted that my book on climate technology policy will be available with open access."

"With UNEP based in Nairobi and communicating with developing countries, open access content allows vital information to get to places where people have no credit cards for ordering books and no assured delivery mechanisms. Open access publishing at MIT Press paves the way for more policy discussions, better processes, and greater impact worldwide, from Nairobi to Northeastern."
