SpringerBriefs in Energy

76 Volumes | 2012 - 2024


SpringerBriefs in Energy presents concise summaries of cutting-edge research and practical applications in all aspects of Energy. Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages, the series covers a range of content from professional to academic. Typical topics might include:

  • A snapshot of a hot or emerging topic
  • A contextual literature review
  • A timely report of state-of-the art analytical techniques
  • An in-depth case study
  • A presentation of core concepts that students must understand in order to make independent contributions.

Briefs allow authors to present their ideas and readers to absorb them with minimal time investment.

Briefs 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. We aim for publication 8–12 weeks after acceptance.

Both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts are considered for publication in this series. Briefs can also arise from the scale up of a planned chapter. Instead of simply contributing to an edited volume, the author gets an authored book with the space necessary to provide more data, fundamentals and background on the subject, methodology, future outlook, etc.

SpringerBriefs in Energy contains a distinct subseries focusing on Energy Analysis and edited by Charles Hall, State University of New York. Books for this subseries will emphasize quantitative accounting of energy use and availability, including the potential and limitations of new technologies in terms of energy returned on energy invested. The second distinct subseries connected to SpringerBriefs in Energy, entitled Computational Modeling of Energy Systems, is edited by Thomas Nagel, and Haibing Shao, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ, Leipzig, Germany. This sub-series publishes titles focusing on the role that computer-aided engineering (CAE) plays in advancing various engineering sectors, particularly in the context of transforming energy systems towards renewable sources, decentralized landscapes, and smart grids.

All Springer brief titles should undergo standard single-blind peer-review to ensure high scientific quality by at least two experts in the field.
