Cambridge Elements; “a dynamic reference resource for graduate students, researchers and practitioners”

Back in May 2018 the ebooks@cambridge team first posted about the then newly emerging Cambridge University Press Elements titles. This publishing programme has now officially launched and the amount of available titles are steadily increasing, with 76 Elements now hosted and accessible on Cambridge Core and searchable in iDiscover.

Cambridge Elements are a new concept in academic publishing and scholarly communication, combining the best features of books and journals. They consist of original, concise, authoritative, and peer-reviewed scholarly and scientific research, organised into focused series edited by leading scholars, and provide comprehensive coverage of the key topics in disciplines spanning the arts and sciences. This innovative format takes just 12 weeks to publish, and the born-digital titles are between 40-75 pages long. There are over 70 series already under contract, with another 30 in the planning stages. Two hundred titles are expected to be published in 2019, and CUP expect to standardly publish in the region of 250 titles per year.

Elements are organised in series within the following subjects.

All of these Elements titles in all of the series will be available for University of Cambridge registered students and staff. Catalogue records for newly published Elements will be added to iDiscover on a monthly basis, alongside the monograph and coursebook title records.
