Our Coverage

Our journals truly transcend from national to international boundaries not only in the authors they attract but also in the diverse countries editors.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy is to address complex, wide-ranging academic and research topics and to cluster journals around those topics so that researchers, industrialists and policy makers can subscribe to either a specific journal, a sub-cluster or the complete cluster to provide either a focus on a specific part, or comprehensive coverage of their chosen field.
