{{short description|Specialist work of writing on a single subject or an aspect of a subject}}{{Distinguish|Monogram}}A monograph is a specialist work of writing (in contrast to reference works)BOOK, Campbell, Robert, Pentz, Ed, Borthwick, Ian, 2012, Academic and Professional Publishing,weblink 978-1-78063-309-1, '[M]onograph' has become a catch-all term for a book that is not of a reference type, that is of primary material, . on a single subject or an aspect of a subject, often by a single author, and usually on a scholarly subject.In library cataloging, monograph has a broader meaning, that of a nonserial publication complete in one volume (book) or a definite number of volumes. Thus it differs from a serial publication such as a magazine, journal, or newspaper.Prytherch, Raymond John, Harrod's librarians' glossary and reference book: a directory of over 10,200 terms, organizations, projects and acronyms in the areas of information management, library science, publishing and archive management, 10th edn (Aldershot, Hants, England ; Burlington, VT: Ashgate, 2005), p. 462.; "For the purpose of library cataloging, any nonserial publication, complete in one volume or intended to be completed in a finite number of parts issued at regular or irregular intervals, containing a single work or collection of works. Monographs are sometimes published in monographic series and subseries. Compare with book."weblink In this context only, books such as novels are monographs.__FORCETOC__

In academia

{{See also|Monographic series}}The term "monographia" is derived from the Greek mono- ("single") and grapho ("to write"), meaning "writing on a single subject".JOURNAL,weblink Development of monograph and study of variation in chemical constituent of plant Balanites roxburghii, Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry, 7, 4, 2018, 8 October 2018, 2369–2371, Unlike a textbook, which surveys the state of knowledge in a field, the main purpose of a monograph is to present primary research and original scholarship ascertaining reliable credibility to the required recipient. This research is presented at length, distinguishing a monograph from an article. For these reasons, publication of a monograph is commonly regarded as vital for career progression in many academic disciplines. Intended for other researchers and bought primarily by libraries, monographs are generally published as individual volumes in a short print run.JOURNAL, 10.1108/00012530910932294, The role and future of the monograph in arts and humanities research, Aslib Proceedings, 61, 67, 2009, Williams, Peter, Stevenson, Iain, Nicholas, David, Watkinson, Anthony, Rowlands, Ian, In Britain and the U.S., what differentiates a scholarly monograph from an academic trade title varies by publisher, though generally it is the assumption that the readership has not only specialized or sophisticated knowledge but also professional interest in the subject of the work.BOOK, Thompson, John B., Books in the Digital Age: The Transformation of Academic and Higher Education Publishing in Britain and the United States, Polity Press, Cambridge, 2005, 978-0745634784, 84–85,

In art

Book publishers use the term "artist monograph" to indicate books dealing with a single artist, as opposed to broader surveys of art subjects.

In biology

In biological taxonomy, a monograph is a comprehensive treatment of a taxon. Monographs typically review all known species within a group, add any newly discovered species, and collect and synthesize available information on the ecological associations, geographic distributions, and morphological variations within the group. See this reference as an example.JOURNAL, Revision of the Triatominae (Hemiptera, Reduviidae), and their significance as vectors of Chagas' disease,weblink Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History, 163, 3, 125–520, 2246/1282, Lent, Herman, Wygodzinsky, Pedro W., The first-ever monograph of a plant taxon was Robert Morison's 1672 Plantarum Umbelliferarum Distributio Nova, a treatment of the Apiaceae.BOOK, Sydney Howard Vines, Vines, Sydney Howard, 1913, Robert Morison 1620–1683 and John Ray 1627–1705, Francis Wall Oliver, Oliver, Francis Wall, Makers of British Botany, Cambridge University Press, 22,

In United States Food and Drug Administration regulation

{{See also|Pharmacopoeia}}In the context of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulation, monographs represent published standards by which the use of one or more substances is automatically authorized. For example, the following is an excerpt from the Federal Register: "The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is issuing a final rule in the form of a final monograph establishing conditions under which over-the-counter (OTC) sunscreen drug products are generally recognized as safe and effective and not misbranded as part of FDA's ongoing review of OTC drug products."{{citation|url= |work=Federal Register|date= May 21, 1999 |volume= 64|number= 98 |series=Rules and Regulations |pages=27666–27693|title=DOCID:fr21my99-6}} Such usage has given rise to the use of the word monograph as a verb, as in "this substance has been monographed by the FDA".
