Open for Climate Justice
We stand with the organizers of Open Access Week in the belief that "sharing knowledge is a human right, and tackling the climate crisis requires the rapid exchange of knowledge across geographic, economic, and disciplinary boundaries." In this spirit, we are delighted to share a reading list of open access books and journals that expand our understanding of climate and environmental studies.
Join us in celebrating—Open for Climate Justice.

Open Access Week 2022
The MIT Press joins with publishers, librarians, educators, students, and readers, across the globe in celebration of International Open Access Week (October 24 - 30, 2022).
In 1995, we leaped into the open access publishing movement, with the publication of William Mitchell's City of Bits. In 2022, we will celebrate opening a record 86 publications by the end of the year—thanks in large part to the tremendous international support for our Direct to Open publishing model.
Open access publishing book publishing takes a village and we are grateful to the authors, staff, funders, librarians, educators, and readers who have made our extensive open access journals and book collection possible.
#OpenAccess is the future.
