eBooks go to print – MyCopy now available in Europe

A wider readership and better visibility for your book: In addition to the original printed version and eBook version of your publication, a third format, called MyCopy, is now available at a low price.

A new format – a higher chance for your book to be widely read.

By summer of 2010, more than 16,000 books have been included and their number is steadily growing with new eBooks being published. MyCopy editions are branded with a color cover and black and white book content.

MyCopy is available in North America and 18 European countries. All books are sold at $24.95 for customers in the US and Canada or €24.95 in Europe (including shipping and handling plus local VAT).

Patrons of all academic libraries that have purchased the corresponding eBook Collection are entitled to order their personal soft cover editions.

What they're saying about MyCopy

“This project represents a very innovative way in which to look at both publisher and library services for electronic content in the future, and MyCopy is a great value-add to our site license for these eBooks,” said Wendy Allen Shelburne, Electronic Resources Librarian at the Library of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

“Yes, the book did match my expectations. I certainly will buy again - the most attractive thing is the considerable savings in the price - this is simply unbelievable and not matched by any other offer from any bookseller! Please keep it up,” said Dr. Manika Jayawardena, trainee radiologist, associated through University of Liverpool.
