General Information on Our Ebook Offer for Libraries

Duncker & Humblot publishes approx. 250 titles p.a. We intend to publish each new title as an ebook as well. Print and ebook versions will be published almost simultaneously. Print, ebook and bundle version of a title each have their own ISBN. There are different prices for individual customers and for libraries. The offer described here is exclusively aimed at libraries.

Single Ebooks

Each ebook can be ordered individually. There is no minimum order requirement. The end user is granted perpetual online access to the content. Generally, the ebook price amounts to approx. 115% of the Print version’s price. As an exception, textbooks are priced differently. No further fees are demanded (e.g. maintenance fee or annual access fee).

Print & Ebook Bundles

Each ebook is also available in combination with the print version as a favorably priced Print & Ebook Bundle. The Bundle price for organizations/libraries amounts to approx. 150% of the print version’s price. As an exception, textbooks are priced differently.
