The advantages of EBA

You decide:

Unlimited Access:

EBA offers unlimited access to all of Gruyter’s 90,000 eBooks, which include titles from our imprints and the ebooks of most of our partner publishers.

Always up to date:

During the EBA phase, new titles automatically appear free of charge in your package. We constantly update our backlist with titles from our De Gruyter Book Archive.

Liberal Digital Rights Management:

Benefit from our liberal digital rights management: unlimited number of users, whether on-site or off. eBooks supplied in PDF format and, when available, as EPUBs.

Know what's important:

Monthly reports provide detailed usage stats.
