Edward Elgar Publishing Announces the Launch of Elgaronline

We are pleased to announce the launch of Elgaronline, the exciting new digital platform for EEP’s books, reference works and journals. Elgaronline has launched with over 2,000 titles, over 30,000 searchable chapters, articles and entries, and is custom-designed to give users full access to the depth and breadth of EEP’s content in one place. According to our chairman, Edward Elgar, “the launch of Elgaronline represents a major milestone in our history, and sees EEP very well placed to capitalise on the digital revolution in academic publishing.”

Demonstrating the very latest in web-design and functionality, Elgaronline will offer easy browsing and sophisticated search capability right across its broad range of content, including Research Monographs, Research Handbooks, Companions, Dictionaries, Encyclopedias and Journals.

With no Digital Rights Management (“DRM”) attached to the content, multi-user access as standard and publication simultaneously with or even before print editions, there will be no simpler or more advantageous way to access EEP’s internationally recognized research publications. The platform also offers librarians the option to purchase tailor-made, subject specific eCollections in Business and Management, Economics, Social and Political Science and Law.

Elgaronline’s key benefits for users and librarians include:

  • Totally DRM-free content, including our critically acclaimed Research Handbooks, Companions, Dictionaries and Research Monographs, allowing users to download and continue their research when and where they want
  • Multi-user access as standard
  • Over 30,000 searchable chapters, articles and entries available from launch, all with tagged keywords and abstracts, giving access to a vast array of content
  • Market leading browse and search functionalities to maximise content discovery and usage and enrich the research experience
  • Subject tailored eCollections and flexible purchase options including perpetual access, backlist and frontlist collections
  • Free sample chapters for non-subscribed content

Tim Williams (Managing Director, Edward Elgar Publishing)

“Elgaronline took over a year to research and develop, and we worked closely with university librarians across the US, Asia and Europe to ensure it met all of their needs for user experience, accessibility and reporting. Showcasing first-rate scholarly content and a market leading user-experience, Elgaronline is an easy choice.” (Tim Williams, Managing Director)
