De Gruyter Introduces ePub3 Format for all Titles

May 29, 2014

De Gruyter announced 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 e-readers. 

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.
