Exact Editions is pleased to announce a partnership with the blog of of the American Philosophical Association (APA) and several academic publishing houses. The new project involves digitising philosophy books written by the APA authors and posting time-limited links to the complete books online through Exact Editions’ innovative Reading Room technology.
The books’ digital editions will be linked from the APA blog and accessible in their entirety for the specified period. Each title benefits from a comprehensive search function and intuitive navigation tools built into the web reader that allows for seamless reading and browsing. The blog will showcase new philosophy books on a regular basis, with the first set of series from Open Book Publishing including titles by J. David Velleman, Catherine Wilson, and Ingrid Robeyns.
The American Philosophical Association promotes the discipline and profession of philosophy, both within the academy and in the public arena. The APA supports the professional development of philosophers at all levels and works to foster greater understanding and appreciation of the value of philosophical inquiry. The APA blog aims to share a variety of perspectives from a broad array of APA members, to highlight the activities being undertaken by the APA, as well as provide a forum where the APA leadership and membership can communicate with one another more effectively.
Exact Editions’ new Reading Rooms technology allows publishers an effective and straight-forward way to hand out temporary access to their content. Publishers can generate a time-limited link lasting one hour, day, week or 30 days, and have the option to share the link directly with readers, on social media, their website or any other way they wish. As well as sharing links to their latest magazine issue or book title, publishers can generate links providing full and temporary access to their full archive of a title.
