Academic Book Chapters

Academic books are specialised publications that tend to deal with focussed parts of a particular scientific area. In my experience, they tend be structured as collections of review papers rather than textbooks and represent a grand snapshot of the scientific record at the time of publication. The don't tend to be high circulation but do get read by peers and so have some value as an author. Publishing a book is also pretty good for the CV and stamps your name as a thought leader in your particular topic. They are often published to coincide with events such as conferences. I have previously been invited to write two chapters in such books.  

In much the same way as peer reviewed journal publications, I can help you develop your book chapter. Just get in contact if you would like to use my services.
