COLLOQUIUM is an innovative information resource for research communities in the biomedical/ life sciences. It combines authoritative content with advanced digital delivery to create a resource that is substantially more useful and dynamic than traditional print and digital publications.

The basic component of the library is a 50- to 120-page electronic book that synthesizes an essential scientific topic, authored by a prominent researcher in the field. We call these Lectures because we believe that they offer unique value to the reader by providing more integration, analysis, and depth than typical journal review articles. We believe COLLOQUIUM Lectures are ideal summaries of essential subject areas for researchers, laboratory personnel, and students.

COLLOQUIUM is organized by series, each managed by a prominent consulting leader in the field. The series editor oversees topic and author selection, as well as peer review to assure quality.

Additional series and titles are added and revised as necessary, and new titles in each series are posted to the site as they become available. This constant influx makes the library dynamic in a way that has never been achieved with existing print or electronic products.

Over time, COLLOQUIUM will grow to encompass the entire scope of its subject disciplines. Our goal is to create one of the largest and most complete compilations of insight and knowledge in biomedical and life science.
