About the book

Neurosurgery is one of the most rapidly evolving areas in medicine. Every day our understanding of the complex biology of tumors evolves, and this expanding knowledge shapes our everyday treatment routines. The surgical approaches are becoming more minimally invasive. The microscope is still the essence of neurosurgery; however, the endoscope and exoscope also find room in the surgical management of the tumors. Medical treatment alternatives are promising, and every day we are getting closer to better medical alternatives. Radiosurgery also keeps its place in the management of some tumors, and every day it is also becoming much safer. Staying up-to-date in the field of neurosurgery is becoming much more important than ever before. In this book, we will focus on the recent advances in neurosurgery, and we would like to invite researchers to share their valuable experiences.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Martina Ivancic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
