About Morgan & Claypool Publishers

Morgan & Claypool is an independent book publisher for the Engineering, Computer Science & Information, Life Sciences, and Physics research communities. We publish 75 to 150 page “lectures,” which are longer and more detailed than journal articles but not as unwieldy as handbooks or monographs. We are a firmly established and trusted provider of overviews on critical research or development topics written (and edited) by expert contributors to the field. Morgan & Claypool offers content in a wide variety of options including print, individual eBooks (PDF, ePub, mobi), and scalable digital libraries for institutions.
