AbstractThis title is an example of a new series of works called “SpringerBriefs” that have been published as eBooks by Springer. This particular eBook is from SpringerBriefs in Education, a series with nine titles currently listed. The essential concept of the overall series (which has 47 content areas, including “molecular science”) is to provide a venue that lies between new research published in an archival journal and large-scale literature reviews. In chemistry education, there really is no journal dedicated to reviews, so this series may serve an important role. The article “Nature of Science in General Chemistry Textbooks” fits this model quite well, both synthesizing some important concepts in the pedagogy related to the nature of science and presenting research about how this field is presented in general chemistry textbooks.
