Electronic publishing

Monographs and other non-periodicals

Every electronic publication may be either an original work of its own or an alternative version of a printed publication. The PDF format is decidedly the most common in the academic world but we can also offer other formats such as ePub, HTML, Mobipocket, and Android / iOS. Note that every publicly available version or a separate format of a book must get its own ISBN.

As for electronic publishing, we focus on two main areas:

Online databases

  • preparing the text for online sale as an e-book and filling in the data in electronic databases (EBSCOhost, ProQuest, Flexibooks, Masaryk University Sales Centre).
  • managing metadata,
  • communication with database operators and data transfer.
