The aim of RESCOM: Scientific Monographs is to promote the publication of scientific monographs that make outstanding results of research accessible to an interested audience and expand the frontiers of knowledge in that particular field.
A scientific monograph is a detailed, specialist work of writing on a single subject or on a specific aspect of a subject written by a qualified researcher in the field. A monograph is always a self-contained, stand-alone book.
