SpringerBriefs in Child Health present concise summaries of cutting-edge research and practical applications from the fields of child and adolescent health.
This book series is designed to target children’s health issues from birth through adolescence, from both a policy and practice perspective. Each subject in the series will be written by a specialist in that area. Their expertise will offer evaluation of the special health issues that would be of value to any health care provider. The authors all practice at nationally recognized children’s hospitals and have done extensive research in their respective areas.
The “template” for the series will be in three sections:
• “Snapshot from the Field” will address current practice and policy
• “Implications for Policy and Practice” will deal with the emerging science and best practices related to cutting edge work going on in the field
• “Looking Ahead” will look forward towards anticipated changes, recommendations and strategies to achieve the best for children and families.
Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages, the series covers a range of content from professional to academic. Possible volumes in the series may consist of timely reports of state-of-the art analytical techniques, reports from the field, snapshots of hot and/or emerging topics, elaborated theses, literature reviews, and in-depth case studies. Both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts are considered for publication in this series. Briefs are published as part of Springer’s eBook collection, with millions of users worldwide. In addition, Briefs are available for individual print and electronic purchase. Briefs are characterized by fast, global electronic dissemination, standard publishing contracts, easy-to-use manuscript preparation and formatting guidelines, and expedited production schedules. We aim for publication 8-12 weeks after acceptance.
