University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) Law Books Will Now Have Exact Print-Replica PDFs

LFrom Oxford University Press/UPSO:

Oxford University Press is delighted to announce a new functionality update in UPSO’s Law publishing.

After listening to requests and feedback from our customers, we will be ensuring that all of the high-quality law books on University Press Scholarship Online will offer exact print-replica PDFs. This development has been implemented primarily to ensure that UPSO titles conform to the requirements of the Bluebook citation rules in the United States, but also benefits those of our users worldwide, whether they be students, scholars or practitioners, where the issue of citing a print work is also important.

This is an ongoing project, and it is expected that print-replica PDFs for all law titles PDFs will be available by the end of March 2016. As of early January 2016, over 100 UPSO Law books have been successfully enhanced with this functionality as part of this project’s pilot, and we will upload the rest on an ongoing basis.

When we finish at the end of March 2016, all of UPSO’s extensive Law collection, numbering some 1,400 titles across our partner presses, will be available for print-replica PDF reading, saving or printing.
