Foundation and Trends
This product combines the peer-review of journals, the high usage of reference works, and the pedagogy of textbooks. Each "issue" of FnT comprises one or more monographs of up to 100 pages written by research and opinion leaders in the field that surveys the literature and offers a state-of-the-art review of the subject in full including a complete bibliography. The issues are published electronically upon acceptance with subsequent distribution in print format. Each issue is subject to peer-review thereby vetting the content and validating the information. Authors are also encouraged to revise their contribution on a regular basis to maintain currency and the incentives include the long-term citation impact of the article and financial compensation. As the number of "issues" grows over time, the subscriber has access to a large corpus of literature, "in effect a "digital library" covering the entire scope of a discipline.
