What is a Frontiers Research Topic?

What is a Frontiers Research Topic?

Science is at its best when researchers come together to debate the most relevant subjects in their field - Frontiers Research Topics bring that debate to an online and peer-reviewed forum that yields a resource openly available to the whole community.

 

Frontiers Research Topics are collections of articles that bring researchers and their publications together to create a comprehensive online resource for the research community, highlighting recent developments and providing a forum for areas of novelty or debate. This unique platform can be updated as new developments are added to the field, making it an open-access resource of peer-reviewed articles that remains relevant for the scientific community.

 

Research Topics have a dedicated homepage for managing contributions, communicating with authors and facilitating post-publication feedback from the research community. Frontiers articles are published immediately after acceptance, and are subject to a fast, objective and transparent peer review process.

 

Research Topics also serve as an excellent natural extension to conferences and workshops. Its organization closely mirrors the format of a conference – with researcher-proposed topics and abstract submissions for proposed contributions – but continues the debate further as a collection of peer-reviewed articles that are then available to the rest of the community as an e-book.
