I don't know a lot about the scientific research and its concepts. What is the difference between this book and any research paper?

From my understanding of the research world, I know that link.springer is a journal and journals publish research papers after reviewing. If that is the case, then what is that book doing in link.springer? Is it really just a book? or Do people call it "published book"?

    It's a book, more specifically a collection. Springer is a publisher. Jun 15, 2018 at 22:27
