e-dition service to end: De Gruyter Book Archive project launched

De Gruyter’s on-demand service “e-dition” made over 10,000 formerly out-of-print books available again. In response to significant worldwide demand we will, over the course of the next three years, digitize the entire archive back to 1749 thereby also contribution to the preservation of academic history.


  • The on-demand service “e-dition” will be terminated – all titles that have already been made available as eBooks and PoDs will remain available – this means that no new requests for digitization of out-of-print titles will be accepted.
  • Digitization of more than 30,000 books throughout the next three years
  • Titles will become available as eBooks and Hardcover Reprints as soon as they have been digitized
  • Until the end of 2017 a selection of De Gruyter’s key book series will be digitized (around 3,000 in total)
