Product Descriptions

International in structure, now is ideally placed to bring a new era to academic publishing which deploys a liberal and fair copyright policy, and provides librarians with value for money.

Focusing initially in the Business and Technology areas, now has introduced Foundations and Trends® (FnT). This product combines the peer-review of journals, the high usage of reference works, and the pedagogy of textbooks. Each “issue” of FnT comprises one or more monographs of up to 100 pages written by research and opinion leaders in the field that survey the literature and offer a state-of-the-art review of the subject in full including a complete bibliography. The issues are published electronically upon acceptance with subsequent distribution in print format. Each issue is subject to peer-review thereby vetting the content and validating the information. Authors are encouraged to revise their contributions regularly to maintain currency and to enhance the long-term citation impact of their articles. As the number of “issues” grows over time, subscribers have access to a large corpus of literature, in effect a digital library covering the entire scope of a discipline.

Each Foundations and Trends® covers a major branch of a scientific discipline and offers current, state-of-the-art review articles by opinion/research leaders in their field. Authors are allowed 50-100 pages for a complete review of the subject and articles are published upon acceptance in electronic form with the references linked to the original source. Each article is intended to put primary research into context, improving researchers’ and students’ understanding of the original literature. As a result, and guided by the links to source material, users have access to primary and secondary data – enriching their comprehension, retention and utilization of the content.
