New Series: Postharvest Biology and Technology - Seeking Book Proposals


Postharvest Biology and Technology of Horticultural Crops

As we know, preserving the quality of fresh produce has long been a challenging task. In the past, several approaches were in use for the postharvest management of fresh produce, but due to continuous advancement in technology, the increased health consciousness of consumers, and environmental concerns, these approaches have been modified and enhanced to address these issues and concerns.

The Postharvest Biology and Technology series will consist of edited books that address several aspects related to postharvest technology of fresh produce. The series will present existing and novel management systems that are in use today or that have great potential to maintain the postharvest quality of fresh produce in terms of microbiological safety, nutrition, and sensory quality.

The books are aimed at professionals, postharvest scientists, academicians researching postharvest problems, and graduate-level students. This series is intended to be a comprehensive venture that provides up-to-date scientific and technical information focusing on postharvest management for fresh produce.

Books in the series will address the following themes:
• Nutritional composition and antioxidant properties of fresh produce
• Postharvest physiology and biochemistry
• Biotic and abiotic factors affecting maturity and quality
• Preharvest treatments affecting postharvest quality
• Maturity and harvesting issues
• Nondestructive quality assessment
• Physiological and biochemical changes during ripening
• Postharvest treatments and their effects on shelf life and quality
• Postharvest operations such as sorting, grading,ripening, de-greening, curing etc.
• Storage and shelf-life studies
• Packaging, transportation, and marketing
• Vase life improvement of flowers and foliage
• Postharvest management of spice, medicinal, and plantation crops
• Fruit and vegetable processing waste/byproducts: management and utilization
• Postharvest diseases and physiological disorders
• Minimal processing of fruits and vegetables
• Quarantine and phytosanitory treatments for fresh produce
• Conventional and modern breeding approaches to improve the postharvest quality
• Biotechnological approaches to improve postharvest quality of horticultural crops

We are seeking editors to edit volumes in different postharvest areas for the series. Interested editors may also propose other relevant subjects within their field of expertise, which may not be mentioned in the list above. We can only publish a limited number of volumes each year, so if you are interested, please email your proposal wasim@appleacademicpress.com at your earliest convenience.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Caitlin Gillian - Editor on Research for the Radiation Therapist - on working with AAP

Caitlin Gillian, one of the editors the on the title Research for the Radiation Therapist, shared her thoughts on working with Apple Academic Press.

“Working with Apple Academic Press was a rewarding and collaborative experience. Effort was made to truly understand what we hoped to accomplish in publishing our work, and the team was responsive and receptive to our queries, feedback, and revisions. The high quality of the final product and its success is a reflection on the quality of the partnership we experienced with AAP in realizing this project.”
—Caitlin Gillan, Asst Professor, University of Toronto
Research for the Radiation Therapist provides a tangible resource for radiation therapists around the country, and even internationally, to aid them in their research and academic pursuits, helping them to navigate the unfamiliar world of research.


The title has also reviewed very well with members of the Radiation Therapy profession. Dr. Rachel Harris, Professional Officer for Research with The Society and College of Radiographers, had this to say about the title:


“An important textbook for the profession. It is essential that we are undertaking evidence-based patient care, and this book is a much-needed resource for radiation therapists, aiding them to have the confidence and skills to undertake and participate in research projects. It is full of debate, case studies, and some really useful practical tips on how to achieve research in the clinical setting. This should be required reading for the whole profession.”—Dr. Rachel Harris, Professional Officer for Research, The Society and College of Radiographers, London, United Kingdom

Green Chemistry Review in CHOICE June 2014


Green Chemistry

Green Chemistry - Fundamentals and Applications landed a review in this month's CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries. Here's an excerpt:

“The importance of becoming a ‘green society’ is now well established within and outside the scientific community. . . . This book is suited to advanced chemistry majors and practitioners; it has numerous detailed illustrations of organic transformations and emphasizes specific green processes and techniques, and ways specific named reactions can be more ecofriendly. The topics range from well-established industrial methods (e.g., sonochemistry and microwave-assisted chemistry) but not yet commonly employed. Overall, this interesting read highlights the rapid progress of green chemistry.”
—P. G. Heiden, Michigan Technological University; in CHOICE: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, June 2014
