River Rapids
A shorter, faster publishing route from River Publishers


River Rapids is a new series of small books/extended review papers of between 50 and 120 pages. The series will focus on cutting-edge research featuring topics across the Applied Sciences with a special emphasis on Computer Science and Energy which are areas of strength for River Publishers.

The series will be made up of the following types of books:

  • Extended Case Studies
  • Short Introductions to Novel Analytical or Modelling Techniques
  • Snapshot Reviews of Hot Topics
  • Extended Review Papers
  • Concise Sets of Lecture Notes

The ebooks will be made available through the IEEE Xplore and IEEE DiscoveryPoint, Knovel, and Taylor & Francis platforms giving them both wide visibility and discoverability. Books will also be available in print (PB) and made available through the usual online retailers on a print on demand basis. Prices will be competitive ($120 and under).

Both solicited and unsolicited manuscripts and proposals are considered for publication. Projects and proposals will be submitted to our usual editorial review process. A MS Word or LaTeX style file will be made available to authors.

Manuscripts should be 50 to 120 pages long.
