2008: the year of the textbook
CABI News, Issue 3, January 2008
CABI’s books feature in the libraries of institutions, universities and colleges worldwide, and our books are regularly adopted by universities and colleges as essential or supplementary course reading.
|In 2007 CABI published the highly successful and long awaited textbook Domestic Animal Behaviour and Welfare, 4th edition (whose author Donald Broom was featured in the first issue of this ezine – read it here). In 2008 CABI is focusing on building its textbook lists and introducing the first book in a new series of protocols texts – user-friendly manuals for students and researchers working in the laboratory. The increased publishing activity in this field will meet the demands of our academic market and help to raise CABI’s profile as a provider of high quality information.
||The summer of 2008 will see a flurry of publishing activity, kicking off with Animal Nutrition Science by G Dryden in July – a wide-ranging study which encompasses the many facets of animal nutrition. This will be followed by RNA Interference: Methods for Plants and Animals, the first in the brand new Principles and Protocols Series designed for upper level undergraduates, particularly those new to a field. Books in this series will outline the theoretical background to experimental approaches, followed by bullet point protocols and will provide an invaluable resource for lab work. |
|Another new series launching this year is Modular Texts, and summer 2008 will also see the publication of the first volume: Nutrition, Immunity and Infections, with Principles and Applications of Domestic Animal Behaviour following later in the year. The Modular Texts are aimed at undergraduate students, postgraduates and researchers, and as the name suggests are intended to be suitable for modular courses, which are becoming increasingly popular in scientific disciplines.
