About the Edition
Editors: A. Méndez-Vilas,
series is committed to giving an overview of the state of the art as
well as upcoming trends, and to promoting discussion about scientific,
technological and educational aspects of Microscopy in both the
biological/biomedical and physical/chemical sciences. Priority will be given to those which clearly emphasize
the role of microscopy in the achieved scientific/ technological/ pedagogical results, as well as those which
make comparative discussions or showing the complementarity of
microscopy techniques with other techniques.
research papers and
mini-review papers are especially welcome (for example, introductory
chapters on a microscopy technique using research data/results),
although also more "regular" research papers are accepted.
Mini-reviews can be thematic in
nature, or centred in a specific research group activity. In this case,
the work should provide an integrated view of the research carried out
by a specific group across the years.
The driving force(s) behind the
evolution (seen as the reinforcement of some research approaches,
refusals of others) of a concrete research group can be of the highest
interest for both experts and new arrivals in the field, and this
information is more difficult to obtain from those fragmented
publications in traditional journals.
collections of images are welcome too.
