De Gruyter Introduces ePub3 Format for all Titles

De Gruyter Introduces ePub3 Format for all Titles | STEM Publishing | Scoop.it

De Gruyter is proud to announce that all of its frontlist titles are now available in the ePub3 format. Alongside the PDF format, ePub is one of the most widely used eBook standards, enabling the mobile viewing of content on tablets, smartphones, and eReaders.

 

"The introduction of the ePub format is an additional step in our digitalization strategy," says Dr. Sven Fund, Managing Director of De Gruyter. "The internet is becoming increasingly mobile, and we are reacting to this development. Currently, every fifth reader uses eBooks, and over 50% of eBook users read while on the go.

 

The ePub format supports variable font sizes as well as the dynamic adjustment of content to the device's screen size. EBooks in the ePub format are released as a single file, as opposed to the one-file-per-chapter format of PDF-based eBooks. De Gruyter is one of the first academic presses worldwide to offer customers the choice between the ePub and PDF formats when purchasing an eBook.

 

The ePub format will also be offered for titles from De Gruyter’s publisher partners. "Annually, some 2,000 ePubs from De Gruyter and its publisher partners, including Böhlau Verlag and Penn Press, will be available through De Gruyter Online and through aggregators," Fund adds.
