DRM and publishers' e-books platforms

ebooks publishing

Important publishers with an e-books platform are Cambridge University Press, Oxford University Press, Springer, Brill, Wiley-Blackwell, Elsevier, Thieme, De Gruyter and Taylor & Francis.

Most e-books however are published on so called DRM platforms (DRM stands for Digital Rights Management). Options for printing and downloading are limited. We offer e-books on the DRM platforms Ebook Central and EBSCO.

DRM e-books can be read online and offline after downloading. For downloading DRM e-books on laptop, tablet or PC installation of Adobe Digital Editions (ADE) or Bluefire Reader is required.

For installaton of ADE on your managed UWP2 PC no Adobe ID is required! However if you download ADE with user ID, your downloaded e-books you will be accessable on all your devices where ADE is installed (with the same user ID).

Follow the instructions to download ADE on your managed UWP2 PC:
- In Workspace Preferences, add Adobe Digital Editions to your Start menu
- Access Ebook Central or EBSCO , download your e-book to Adobe Digital Editions
- ADE will start and will ask for 'leverancier-id', leave both fields empty, click in the left corner : 'authorize without id'
and 'proceed'
- In the next screen you are informed that the computer is authorized and you can download the e-book
