The MIT Open Access Articles collection consists of scholarly articles written by MIT-affiliated authors that are made available through DSpace@MIT under the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy, or under related publisher agreements. Articles in this collection generally reflect changes made during peer-review.

Version details are supplied for each paper in the collection:

  • Original manuscript: author's manuscript prior to formal peer review
  • Author's final manuscript: final author's manuscript post peer review, without publisher's formatting or copy editing
  • Final published version: final published article, as it appeared in a journal, conference proceedings, or other formally published context (this version appears here only if allowable under publisher's policy)

Some peer-reviewed scholarly articles are available through other DSpace@MIT collections, such as those for departments, labs, and centers.

  • On the electrical operation of batch electrodialysis for reduced energy consumption 

    Chehayeb, Karim Malek; Lienhard, John H (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2019-02)
    The cost of desalination using electrodialysis (ED) may be decreased by lowering the electrical energy consumption. This can be done by improving the operating conditions of ED systems. For a fixed application, the total ...
