produces high quality, in-depth review articles in the fields of 
business and technology.  Their web-based Foundations and TrendsR 
series of journals acts as a gateway to a library's primary 
literature and combines the peer-review of journals, the high 
usage of reference works, and the pedagogy of textbooks.

Through this archiving agreement, all twenty Foundations and 
Trends titles will be preserved in the Portico Archive for future 
scholars, practitioners, researchers, and students.  Each 
Foundations and TrendsR title comprises one or more monographs of 
up to 100 pages, written by research and opinion leaders in the 
field that surveys the literature and offers a state-of-the-art 
review of the subject in full including a complete bibliography.

Two primary research journals published by Now Publishers are

of Political Science and International Review of Environmental 
and Resource Economics.
