Exact Editions launches digital books service

The service launches with a range of books for the academic market, with titles across a variety of genres: history, literature, poetry, ecology, sociology and biography, published by Carcanet, Seren, Liverpool University Press, and Permanent Publications.

The Exact Editions platform offers access seamlessly across web, iOS and Android native apps. Each book has an individual sales page in the Exact Editions institutional shop, and can be browsed using Exact Editions web reader. The digital books are purchased with IP authenticated network access, including support for remote access, across mobile and web platforms, with unlimited usage for anyone at the institution.

Using Exact Editions expertise in digitising content, complex books can now be displayed with full respect to how they are intended to look in print, says Exact Editions. Each page appears exactly as it would on paper, with the added features of Exact Editions’ search technology, smart linking capabilities, and institutional functionality.

When purchased, the institution will receive an Exact Edition of the book, as a perpetual access acquisition, including no limits on the usage of the book, and instant availability for all users. In this way publishers will be able to utilise Exact Editions’ experience in the institution market to deliver site-wide access in a way that has not previously been possible with digital book platforms, says the company.

Daryl Rayner, Managing Director of Exact Editions said about the launch: “The Exact Editions service is ideally suited to a books platform. Publishers will be able to see real revenue growth in selling books to institutions, while institutions will be able to provide an exact digital edition to all of their users. We are excited to be launching this service which is incredibly good value and delivers perpetual access to books that universities need.”
