Columbia University Press and De Gruyter agree ebook deal

Share this on social media:

Columbia University Press and De Gruyter have announced a global distribution partnership for ebook content. De Gruyter will electronically distribute a selection of current Columbia University Press publications and an extensive backlist of more than 1,000 ebooks.

Furthermore, in a joint digitalisation project, more than 3,000 out-of-print titles will be made available as ebooks and hardcover reprints. This transatlantic partnership will expand the international reach of Columbia University Press while also strengthening De Gruyter's catalogue with a wide range of high-quality academic publications.

'We were impressed by De Gruyter's international distribution team as well as their innovative business models for libraries,' says Jennifer Crewe, director of Columbia University Press. 'This exciting new partnership offers an excellent opportunity to sell our current ebooks, and to make the outstanding Columbia University Press archive visible and available once again.'

Columbia University Press, the fourth-oldest university press in the United States, publishes outstanding original works in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. All Columbia University Press ebooks will be offered at De Gruyter Online.

'For us, the partnership with Columbia University Press is a clear win,' says Carsten Buhr, managing director of De Gruyter. 'We're certain that CUP content will be of great interest to academics, libraries, and the lay public around the globe, and we're excited about the months ahead.'
