e-Books and Online Questions

I am an individual customer - where can I purchase your e-books?

When published, our e-books have direct links to various retail vendors on our website's book description pages. Click on the e-book shopping cart link. We do not sell e-books directly to individuals.

I am an institutional customer - where can I purchase your e-books?

Many of our e-books are available through these library aggregators: Books at JSTOR, CNPereading (China), Dawsonera (UK), DeGruyter Online, EBSCO, iGPublishing (Asia), MyiLibrary, Project MUSE, and ProQuest Ebook Central. We do not sell e-books directly to libraries.

Can I copy and print your e-books?

No, or a very small percentage of an e-book, depending upon the digital rights management (DRM) applied by the various partners who sell our e-books.

Why are some titles not available as e-books?

Not all books display well in available e-book formats. Most of our new books are published as e-books, and we are always working to add more backlist content and present it in the best possible way.

I'm a professor and would like to use portions of your e-books in a course.

See /permissions.html#repubinstructors for information about Copyright Clearance Center.

How can I get your data for my online bookstore?

We maintain an FTP site with files containing our basic bibliographic data, book descriptions from seasonal catalogs, excerps from reviews and endorsements, tables of contents, and cover images. The files are in standard formats and can be accessed at /vendors.html. If you prefer, you can FTP the files directly from by using the standard anonymous login procedure and going to /pub/bookdata.
