Springer and Politecnico di Milano will partner to publish a new book series entitled POLIMI SpringerBriefs. These titles will consist of concise summaries of cutting-edge research and practical applications across a wide spectrum of fields. All books in the series are available as eBooks on Springer's online platform, SpringerLink, and in print-on-demand (POD) format.
The POLIMI SpringerBriefs will cover a broad range of academic and professional content from the main areas of research carried out at Politecnico di Milano, including: aerospace engineering, bioengineering, nuclear science and technology, economics and mathematical models and methods in engineering, to name a few. Also, Ph.D. theses may be considered for publication within the series, provided that they represent a significant and original scientific advance.
"This new book series will contribute not only to a deeper understanding of real world phenomena, but also to further developments in the applied sciences," said Prof. Barbara Pernici, Editor-in-Chief of the series and Director of the Doctoral School of Politecnico di Milano. "We chose to work with Springer, an outstanding publisher in science and technology, because they are able to support Politecnico di Milano in disseminating and developing scientific discoveries."
Dr. Francesca Bonadei, Executive Editor Mathematics, Statistics and Engineering at Springer, said, "By publishing in the classical fields, this series is particularly open to interdisciplinary and emerging topics between fundamental sciences and engineering. Working with this outstanding Italian university, we aim to promote the valuable research results carried out at Politecnico di Milano, which are worthy of worldwide distribution. Springer is proud to introduce this book series to the international scientific community."
Politecnico di Milano was founded in 1863 and plays a significant role in the fields of engineering and technology, as well as in architecture and design. The university's goal is to contribute significantly to the history of scientific research in both Italy and the world.
