Edited References

About the Collection

Edited References are one of the most popular publication formats. These well-established titles feature previously unpublished, peer-reviewed scholarly chapters that are contributed by a variety of experts from around the world. Similar to Authored References in their concise discussions of the latest models and concepts within a specific area, Edited References utilize a more collaborative approach and include contributing authors with varying backgrounds and experience. These projects are led by one or a team of esteemed editors and include at least 15 chapters of descriptive and progressive research.

Providing thorough descriptions detailing the latest innovative and trending content, these collaborative publications accommodate the research needs of academicians, professionals, and practitioners, and are suitable supplements for graduate and undergraduate courses.
