The AAPS Advances in the Pharmaceutical Sciences series, published in partnership with Springer Nature, is designed to deliver volumes authored by scientific leaders and authorities from around the globe, addressing innovations in drug research and development and best practice for scientists and industry professionals in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

AAPS Introductions in the Pharmaceutical Sciences

Editor-in-Chief: Robin M. Zavod 

New titles coming soon! 

The AAPS Introductions in the Pharmaceutical Sciences book series, published in conjunction with Springer Nature, is designed to support pharmaceutical scientists at the point of knowledge transition. Whether shifting between positions, business models, research project objectives, or at a crossroad in professional development, scientists need to retool to meet the needs of the new scientific challenges ahead of them. These educational pivot points require the learner to develop new vocabulary in order to effectively communicate across disciplines, appreciate historical evolution within the knowledge area with the aim of appreciating the current limitations and potential for growth, learn new skills and evaluation metrics so that project planning and subsequent evolution are evidence based, as well as to simply “dust of the rust” of content learned in previous educational or employment settings, or utilized during former scientific explorations. The Introductions book series will meet these needs and serve as a quick and easy-to-digest resource for contemporary science.
