Elsevier Book Series

The Perfect Complement to Primary Research

The Elsevier series collection contains 58 distinct Life and Physical Sciences series. Each volume in the series contains a collection of reviews on current research in a particular field or an overview of a topic. The series are similar to journals in content and structure, yet present a more lengthy examination of a subject area than is possible in a traditional journal article. Many articles are able to stand alone and do not need the context of the volume to be meaningful.

The series are available online via SciVerse ScienceDirect and in print.
