Starting 1 January 2014 De Gruyter will offer in digital format the complete journal archives of its imprints Oldenbourg Wissenschaftsverlag and Akademie Verlag at www.degruyter.com.
Some 40 journals will be added, comprising over 700,000 pages. A number of these journals are highly renowned, including the Historische Zeitschrift (Historical Journal), the Zeitschrift für Kristallographie (Journal for Crystallography), and the Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie (German Journal for Philosophy).
"De Gruyter has been carrying out the rapid retro-digitization of its imprint journals, as they represent a high-value and ideal complement to the De Gruyter Journal Archives," says Sven Fund, Managing Director of De Gruyter. "Since 2009 we have been offering all De Gruyter journal content – present and past – in digital format, thus providing academics around the world with quick and easy access to important scholarship over a broad time frame."
The retro-digitized journals of both imprints are of international significance, as half of the content is in English.
