We have many titles from Nova Publishers in our library (because for  
our special subject collection we collect all biology titles worldwide  
as long as titles are available with reasonable effort). From my  
experience, most Nova books seem to contain original research, but the  
title wording often suggests more importance or relevance to a topic  
than is really to be found inside. Often, Nova book titles suggest  
some kind of reference or text book, but contributions are not  
comprehensive, or rather too highly specialized (and maybe of  
sub-average quality).
