About Perspectives

PERSPECTIVES aims at bringing the exciting world of science to a larger audience who may not have the requisite knowledge to understand complex and technical research findings as those published in conventional journal articles.

These articles tell a simple story about the research, the findings and their applications in such a manner that the article is understood by people who do not have the requisite background knowledge on the subject.
