Revues.org’s content available for mobile devices
We are pleased to announce Revues.org’s new service providing the platform’s content for mobile devices. Our service has been designed make use of the new tools and functions offered by recent developments in mobile readers.
Today our 220 journals and book series currently on the Revues.org platform are available in EPUB format for mobile devices and readers such as the SonyReader and iPad, as well as mobile phones equipped with Stanza and Aldiko applications (for iPhone and Android respectively).
EPUB, an acronym of “electronic publication”, is a free and open e-book standard, designed to facilitate the content display on readers, which provides suitably adapted and readily adaptable page layouts. In this format, the text adjusts and adapts itself to the reading tool in question – the iPad or iPhone for example, with their different sizes. Readers can also adjust the format to create layouts according to their own preferences, e.g. font size, etc.
The EPUB format is the third reading format on offer on the platform after HTML for online reading, and PDF for off-line reading, in line with journals’ own publication policies; the PDF format is not suitably adapted to the new readers.
Cléo recently inaugurated its own Bookserver – an online catalogue and gateway to content in EPUB format, providing readers with access to the platform’s journals and book series. Our Bookserver enables users to download articles and issues of journals onto mobile devices. Readers can also create their own libraries of digital books via dedicated applications.
To find out more about Revues.org’s Bookserver, read this notice published on the Cléo blog (in French): http://leo.hypotheses.org/5222
Les conférences du Collège de France and other works are available in the iBooks application.
