Perspectives in Science
Perspectives in Science is our new open access journal serial for the publication of concise and well-defined scientific topics, each delivered as a distinct topical issue, serving as a platform for content that usually falls somewhere in between traditional journal articles and more expansive books or textbooks.
Perspectives in Science covers
- Reports of research projects or collaborations,
- Descriptions of defined areas in a field, e.g. a new complex technology, a set of new analytical tools for a specific problem set etc.,
- A set of core concepts for teaching purposes, or
- A compilation of "this-is-how-we-do-it"-knowledge from large institutions.
