From The Bookseller:
Academic indie publisher Edward Elgar has launched its online platform with no digital rights management attached to the contents.
Elgaronline.com will hold 2,000 books, reference works and journals and allow users to access a range of materials including monographs, dictionaries, companions and journals.
The platform will offer free chapters to users and the material will not have any DRM inscribed on it. The company said: “With no digital rights management attached to the content . . . there will be no simpler or more advantageous way to access EEP’s internationally recognised research publications.”
