Formatex, a Spanish Research Center, in association with Kluwer Academic
Publishers, is now preparing the Second number of the Formatex Microscopy
book series, with the preliminary title of "Current Issues in
Multidisciplinary Microscopy Research and Education". You can see the
contents of the first number published in 2003 in
Website of the 2004 edition is
This second number of the series is committed to giving an overview of the
state of the art as well as upcoming trends, and to promoting discussion
about scientific, technological and educational aspects of Microscopy in
both the biological/biomedical and physical/chemical sciences. Although all
types of papers are a priori accepted (research articles, reviews, case
studies, etc.), priority will be given to those which clearly emphasize the
scientific/technological/pedagogical results, as well as those making
comparative discussions of two or more microscopy techniques or showing the
complementarity of microscopy techniques with other techniques. For this
second number, "educationally-oriented" and mini-review papers are
specially welcome, although also "regular" research papers are accepted.
If you are interested in participating in this edition submitting a
(technical, scientific, educational, introductory...) chapter related to
microscopy, please see the website for details.
As you may see from the Call for Papers' website, the deadline for chapter
submission is MARCH 15TH. Early submission of a short abstract of your
chapter proposal is appreciated in order to allow potencial authors to know
what other authors will write about for the book and avoid contents
We hope that you find this new approach to microscopy issues interesting
and we hope to hear from you/your team for this and/or future editions.
If you any enquiry or suggestion about this volume, please contact us.
Best wishes from Spain.
