“The Reference Module is the perfect way for beginning graduate students and practicing scientists alike to keep abreast of basic knowledge in our time of rapid expansion of new knowledge and cross-fertilization between disciplines. Biophysics epitomizes these current trends. The areas in which biophysicists are working are so diverse, no single person can be familiar with all of them. The articles in the Reference Module, written by experts at an introductory level and updated regularly, will be an invaluable resource.” –Huan-Xiang Zhou, Distinguished Research Professor, Department of Physics and Institute of Molecular Biophysics, Florida State University, Subject Editor for Biophysics
“Research changes our knowledge every day, so we need new ways to communicate scientific advances. Furthermore, regular scientific articles are often difficult to understand for non-specialized readers. Elsevier Reference Modules offer a unique framework where current and relevant topics in Life Sciences are reviewed and periodically updated by experts in the field, with the aim that general public can learn them most relevant concepts in Biology.” – Oscar Zaragoza Hernandez, National Centre for Microbiology, ISCIII, Spain, Subject Editor for Mycology
The scope of life sciences is as vast as the variety of life on Earth: mathematical biology, developmental biology, molecular and cell biology, parasitology and virology, microbiology and immunology — the list goes on. Elsevier, through its renowned imprints like Academic Press, provides high-quality content in all of these areas that supports learning, teaching, and research. Our books, eBooks, journals, and online tools are cross-disciplinary, allowing academics and professionals to effectively learn about science outside their areas of focus.
