Introducing SpringerBriefs

© SpringerSpringerBriefs are concise summaries of cutting-edge research and practical applications across a wide spectrum of fields. 
Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages, each series covers a range of professional and academic topics.

  • A bridge between new research results published in journal articles and a contextual literature review
  • A snapshot of a hot or emerging topic
  • An in-depth case study or clinical example
