Interview with DeGruyter CEO, Sven Fund, about DeGruyter eBooks

Yesterday I spoke with Dr. Sven Fund, the CEO of DeGruyter.  News to me, DeGruyter has been publishing for 262 years! We discussed DeGruyter’s ebook program including their e-ditions program.  E-ditions provides “on demand” requests for digital or print copies of thousands of backlist titles.  Listen to the interview here.

Over 30 interviews with librarians, publishers, aggregators, and others in the information industry are available on the NSR interviews page.

De Gruyter’s e-dition offers out-of-print titles in print or electronic format

I received a nice email from De Gruyter about their e-dition service.  De Gruyter e-dition makes over 60,000 backlist titles from De Gruyter’s 260+ year publishing history available for purchase.  This includes titles no longer available in print and titles that would otherwise not be converted to digital format.  At a customer’s request, a formerly unavailable title will now be available both in electronic format (exclusively for libraries and institutions) and/or as a hardcover reprint. Where retro-digitization of material is required, the title will be delivered to the recipient within a maximum of ten weeks.

More information is also available on the De Gruyter web site.
