Microscopy Science:

Last Approaches on Educational Programs and Applied Research

Miscroscopy Book Series #8 - Home

This 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.

This new edition will be composed of chapters written by active researchers in microscopy and/or microscopy applications, using original research materials, but presented in a way accessible to a public beyond those ones who are specialists in the topic dealt. It is the main goal of this approach to take full pedagogical advantage of many research materials that researchers manage around the world. Priority will be given to those works that clearly emphasize the role of microscopy in the achieved scientific/ technological/ pedagogical results, as well as those works that make comparative discussions or show the complementarity of microscopy techniques with other techniques.

The aim of this book is to share the latest research advances in the field of microscopy. Chapters shall be written by active researchers, but presented in a way accessible to a public beyond those who are specialists in the topic dealt.

Educational-oriented original research papers and mini-reviews are especially welcome (for example, introductory chapters on a certain microscopy technique or a certain application, using research data/results), although more "regular" research papers might also be suitable if the addressed topic is clearly exposed for non-specialists. Mini-reviews can be thematic in nature, or focused on the activity of a specific research group. In this latter case, the work should provide an integrated view of the research carried out by that group across the years (that is, how and why certain research approaches were reinforced and other refused). Commented collections of images are welcome too.

This call for papers is aimed to all those researchers who are active in any of the following themes:

  • Applications of microscopy in biology and medicine
  • Applications of microscopy in physical/chemical sciences
  • Advances in methods and techniques
  • Educational materials on microscopy

Please, take some time to read the proposed complete list of topics for this book.
