Springer Launches SpringerBriefs as Ebooks

Springer has launched SpringerBriefs, a product line for works between 50 – 125 pages that are not quite long enough to be books, yet too long to be journal articles. These works will be available as ebooks on Springer’s online platform SpringerLink.com and in print.

SpringerBriefs will cover a wide range of content from professional to academic across a variety of subject areas including business and economics, computer science, human and behavioral sciences, life sciences, mathematics and physical sciences. Typical topics might include a report on state-of-the-art techniques, a snapshot of a hot or emerging topic, an in-depth case study, or a presentation of core concepts for students.

Expert advisory boards and collaborations with academic societies will contribute to generating high-quality content. Streamlined publishing processes and accelerated schedules will take authors’ ideas to market more swiftly than with previous methods. The first titles are scheduled for release in November and December 2010.

All SpringerBriefs titles will be included in the Springer ebook packages that are delivered to libraries and institutions via SpringerLink. They will also be available for sale, through Springer's retail partners, in print, or as ebooks for around $40 − $50. SpringerBriefs will also be available in print at lower prices through MyCopy, Springer’s print-on-demand program for registered patrons of libraries that subscribe to the Springer eBook Collections.
