Authored References

About the Collection

Written entirely by up to five authors, Authored References are comprised of illustrative chapters that delve into emerging research in niche areas. Though similar to an Edited References, these books tend to be smaller and more compact, featuring focused discussions on key models, methodologies, and concepts from a narrowed point-of-view.

Authored References are beneficial resources for researchers who are looking for additional content to enhance their studies. Faculty and students alike will find these titles to be indispensable accompaniments for both graduate and undergraduate courses.
