Morgan & Claypool Publishers is an innovative new company formed to serve the global research, development and educational communities in science and technology. It provides authoritative content divided into two digital libraries:
Synthesis Digital Library covers current and emerging topics in Engineering and Computer Science.
Colloquium Digital Library covers topics in Life Science including Cell and Molecular Biology, Biomedicine and Neuroscience.
The basic component of each library is a 50 to 100 page "Lecture"; a self-contained electronic book that synthesizes an important research or development topic, authored by an expert contributor to the field. They offer unique value to the reader by providing more analysis and depth than the typical research journal article. More dynamic and convenient than traditional print or digital handbooks, contributed volumes, and monographs, they are an ideal entry point to new areas for researchers, advanced developers, and students.
The library and its lectures are organized by series (please see Appendix A and B for a current list). Each series is managed by a prominent consulting editor. The series editor guides lecture topic and author selection as well as peer review. New series and lectures are added continuously and existing lectures are revised as needed. This makes the collection dynamic in a way that has not been achieved with traditional reference or educational products. Over time, the digital libraries will grow to encompass the entire scope of its subject disciplines and are expected to be useful to a broad range of professionals, researchers, and students.
For the researcher, it provides an ideal introduction to new fields. This is an increasingly important benefit as science and engineering become more interdisciplinary.
For the practicing engineer, it provides a method of staying current on developments in research at university, corporate, and government labs.
For the professor and student, it provides a source of information on advanced topics that will be more accessible than the journal literature and that can be relied upon to be authoritative and complete.
