eBook Format and Rights Management

Wolters Kluwer eBooks are created in the EPUB format, and protected with Adobe Digital Rights Management (DRM).

EPUB is an open standard, non-proprietary file format and is the most widely supported format for eBooks. The EPUB format reflows the text according to screen size, giving the reader a wide choice of reading devices, from smartphones and tablets to laptops and desktop computers.

Wolters Kluwer eBooks are converted directly into EPUB files from our content management system instead of from basic PDFs.  This allows the reader to experience all the enhancements of the EPUB format, including full linking functionality, text reflowing, navigation implementation and accurately rendered graphics.

Adobe DRM is a digital protection system that enables the purchaser to access the eBook on devices of his or her choice while preventing unauthorised file sharing.

Other eReaders and Devices

DL Reader, also available from the Apple App Store, is an alternative to Bluefire Reader.

We do not currently support other eReader and device combinations.

Many Wolters Kluwer eBooks are large and contain detailed tables.  While a number of other eReader and device combinations support Adobe DRM-protected EPUB files, many of them are low specification and will not deliver acceptable response times or rendering to match the quality of your Wolters Kluwer eBook.

We cannot guarantee that these other combinations will either work properly or deliver a satisfactory eBook experience, so customers who purchase Wolters Kluwer eBooks to read on devices other than the PC/Mac or iPad/iPhone options recommended here do so at their own risk.

Please check the following link for more information on Adobe Digital Editions and other eReading devices.

As eBook and eReader technology matures, Wolters Kluwer will continue to evaluate its supported options and update this guidance accordingly.
