This online portal is designated for the writing and publishing of living handbooks, especially in all the fields of life sciences where traditional books show a too great delay to the progressive research and development of treatment.
The living handbooks combine written information with all media available for illustration of research outcome and new treatments, e.g. videos, figures, sounds or graphics.
