  • Each title includes an overview of the discipline, where the editor explains how he or she selected the readings

Key Readings

  • A chronology gives the user the opportunity to visualise development of research. It shows the categories that the editor defined as most important, plotted on a timeline. The key section and coloured dots, each of which represents a key reading, are designed to help researchers recognize patterns within the topic

  • Users can then select the readings listed to review an abstract of the journal article; and click on “Full text” and get taken to the full article on the publisher’s site. They will be able to read the full article If their institution has a subscription.
