Epub Files have the extension .epub. also known as open format. EPUB is designed for reflowable content that is, the EPUB reader can optimize text for a particular display device according to the screen size. EPUB also supports fixed-layout content.

What are the advantages of having an Book available in ePUB format?

Here are a few of the major merits of the ePUB format:

Open format:

Unlike some other popular Book formats, ePub is an open standard tool which means that it can be used by everyone; from individual authors to major publishers. The open format of ePub is a prime reason for its popularity apart from the superlative functionality that it offers.

Text reflow possible:

ePub also has a unique reflow feature which allows the Books to fit the size of the screen on which they are viewed on. So, whether you are using a 10.1 inch iPad or a 3.5 inch cell phone screen, you will be able to read it. When using Books published in the ePub format, small screen users do not have to constantly zoom in and out and scroll constantly, while large screen users will be able to read faster as there will be more words on the screen at a time.


ePub exhibits superior compatibility which has not been seen in any other current Book format including the ever popular PDF.

Another advantage is that ePub is delivered in a single zip folder in which an archive is created to store the organizational and content files for an Book.

What do I need to submit to Bentham Science Publishers to have my e-Book available in ePub Format?

There is no special requirement. You need to submit the Book in MS Word with all figures, diagrams, tables and charts inserted in the correct location and with suitable captions. Additionally, all figures and diagrams must be provided separately as specified in our Author Guidelines.

Can I print and copy my Books?

Bentham Books have their own established guidelines for fair usage of published Books in order to protect copyrights such as that how much of their Books can be printed or copied. These permissions may differ from Book to Book. For example, some of the free Books will have no restrictions on copying and printing, while in other cases publisher might give users the ability to print/copy several pages of an Book within a set period of time.
