About this series Titles in this series Subseries of this series
     

This series presents eminent conceptual thinkers, scholars, policymakers and diplomats who—as pioneers in a specific field of research or an area of political debate—have had an innovative, long-lasting regional or global impact on issues crucial for humankind in the twenty-first century. SpringerBriefs on Pioneers in Science and Practice (PSP) will present the work of distinguished scholars in the natural or social sciences and in the humanities—from many disciplines and from all parts of the world—who have inspired scientific and policy debates and who with their conceptual and scholarly work have introduced new areas or topics of scientific analysis, research and teaching. The series Pioneers in Science and Practice will also include influential and successful policymakers who have had a major impact on multilateral diplomacy and decision-making, primarily in the four key areas of the environment, security, development and peace. The goal of this series on pioneers is to publish selected major texts by a pioneer in a particular field of scientific analysis and political practice together with a biography and a bibliography—or for practitioners a survey of the major policy decisions they have influenced. The reader who is interested in the impact of new ideas on scientific development in different disciplines and of innovative policy decisions on international policies can thus easily access the overall work of the pioneer presented. Each pioneer in the PSP series will be introduced by a colleague who is familiar with the pioneer’s innovative work as a scholar or practitioner and who will place his or her work in the context of one or more scientific disciplines or political issue areas. This will be accompanied by an extended professional biography linking the selected pioneering academic’s area with a personal biography and a comprehensive bibliography—or in the case of policymakers with a brief survey of key innovative policy decisions. Then, the pioneer or a colleague will introduce selected benchmark papers, put them into the context of the author’s own work, and reflect on the impact they have had on the continuing policy debate.

All books in this subseries range from 50,000 to 70,000 words, and are published as printed books in softcover and as Ebooks. All members of the more than 4,500 academic institutions globally that subscribe to the relevant book package of SpringerLink have free access to the Ebook and may obtain MyCopy.

SpringerBriefs in
Pioneers in Science and Practice (PSP)

Editor: Hans Günter Brauch, Free University Berlin, Germany

The SpringerBriefs in Pioneers in Science and Practice (PSP) present eminent conceptual thinkers, scholars, policymakers, diplomats who – as pioneers in a specific field of research or area of political practice – have had an innovative, long-lasting regional or global impact on issues crucial for humankind in the 21st century.

This PSP series on pioneers will present the work of distinguished scientists in the natural or social sciences and in the humanities who have inspired scientific and policy debates – from many disciplines and from all parts of the world and who with their conceptual and scholarly work have introduced new areas or topics of scientific analysis, research and teaching. This series on Pioneers in Science and Practice will also include influential and successful policymakers who have had a major impact on multilateral diplomacy and decision-making in the four key areas of the environment, security, development and peace.

The goal of this series on pioneers is to publish selected major texts by a pioneer in a particular field of scientific analysis and political practice together with an extended biography and a selective or comprehensive bibliography – or for practitioners a survey of major policy decisions they have influenced – that allow readers from different disciplines and across the globe to easily access the work of the pioneer presented.

All books in this series will be brief (up to about 62,000 words) and available as softcover and as eBooks. For libraries subscribing to SpringerLink, all readers of that institution will have free access to the electronic version and may also obtain a printed version as MyCopy from the publisher. This makes these texts especially attractive for course adoption.

Each pioneer in this PSP series will be introduced by a colleague who is familiar with the pioneer’s innovative work as a scholar or practitioner and who will place his or her work in the context of one or more scientific disciplines or political issue areas. This will be accompanied by an extended professional biography linking the selected pioneering academic’s area with a personal biography and a comprehensive bibliography – or in the case of policymakers with a brief documentation of key innovative policy decisions. Then, the pioneer or a colleague will introduce selected benchmark papers, put them into the context of the author’s own work, and reflect on the impact they have had on the continuing policy debate.

The books will be published 8 to 12 weeks after acceptance. Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages (approximately 20,000-70,000 words), the series will cover a wide range of pioneers in the natural and social sciences and in the humanities as well as in practice in international organizations, in governments, in social movements and in nongovernmental organizations, who through their scientific and practical work have had a lasting national, regional and global impact.

SpringerBriefs in PSP will be published as part of Springer’s eBook collection, with millions of users worldwide. In addition, Briefs will be available for individual print and electronic purchase. Briefs are characterized by fast, global electronic dissemination, standard publishing contracts, easy-to-use manuscript preparation and formatting guidelines, and expedited production schedules.

Your proposal should consist of the following items: Title, Author(s) information, Abstract, 5 Keywords (would be used when searching your topic on Google or Amazon), Manuscript delivery date, Estimated number of pages, Concise outline (ca. 200 words), Table of contents. Please allow 1-2 months for the peer review process.
