About the book
The contents of the book will be written by multiple authors and edited by an expert in the field. Authors are not limited in terms of topic but encouraged to present a chapter proposal that best suits their current research efforts. We accept scientific papers that can be presented as original research papers and review papers. The required length of the full chapters is 10-20 pages and the chapters should be original works (not republished). As a self-contained collection of scholarly papers, the book will target an audience of practicing researchers, academics, Ph.D. students and other scientists. Since it will be published as an Open Access publication, it will allow unrestricted online access to chapters with no reading or subscription fees.
