40,000 titles from 260 years of academic publishing

Friedrich Schleiermacher, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Ludwig Tieck, the Brothers Grimm – these are just few of the authors who published with De Gruyter and whose titles can be found in our archive, which comprises 40,000 titles. Now, 260 years later, we are breathing new life into these treasures by making them digitally available again.

With our On-Demand service „e-dition“, 10,000 formerly out-of-print books have already been digitized. The success of this initiative all over the world demonstrates the importance of preserving academic history. Therefore, we have taken the decision to digitize our entire archive back to 1749 and make all titles available as eBooks and as hardcover reprints as they are digitized over the next three years.

Complete by 2020: digitization of our entire archive

Titles will be available as eBooks and Hardcover PoDs.

More than 70 important book series were selected to be completed in the first step.

The e-dition service will end – all titles that are already digitized will remain available as PoD and eBook.
