Looking back at the past year to inspire the future

Springer Physical Sciences in 2017

2017 was a year filled with groundbreaking research and technological advances across the physical sciences. As we start 2018, we would like to take a look back and reflect on some of the most popular research from 2017, sourced from our book and journal portfolios to inspire us for 2018. 

We invited members of our editorial team to kick off the this process and write about their year and what they see for 2018.
