Spanning the entire spectrum of life science research, the Encyclopedia features more than 3,000 specially commissioned and peer-reviewed articles. These concentrate primarily on the molecular and cellular life sciences, including biochemical topics, methods and techniques. Applied areas of science are also included on a selective basis, as are biographies and general interest articles on ethics and the history of science.
Articles are divided into three categories indicating their level of complexity:
Encyclopedia of Life Sciences features more than 1,400 introductory level articles. These have been written primarily for undergraduates and non-specialists requiring the basic concepts of a particular subject. Scientists and researchers looking to extend their knowledge outside their own specific field of interest will also find these articles useful.
More than 1,800 advanced articles provide more detailed discussions of specialized subjects, at a level equivalent to that found in graduate level texts.
Written by leading international scientists, these keynote articles cover hot topics and controversial issues.
All articles have been rigorously peer-reviewed and edited by an international Editorial Advisory Board of 180 subject specialist advisors.
Most articles are accompanied by color illustrations and tables, with appendix and glossary material providing essential information for the non-specialist.
The Encyclopedia of Life Sciences provides an excellent source of information for undergraduates, graduates, post-graduates, teachers/lecturers as well as professionals and researchers working in the biomedical sciences and related areas. Although chapters on more complex subjects have been written primarily for those with a scientific background, unnecessary technical jargon is avoided, enabling the material to be accessed by the non-specialist.
