To accommodate student format preferences, we offer an ebook version of your text, when possible. The digital reading experience for Cognella texts is through Adobe Digital Editions or VitalSource, free viewing programs for secure PDFs.
Please let your editor know if your university uses or works with any alternate ebook providers. We may be able to accommodate your institution’s ebook preferences or partnerships.
Digital File Expiration
Due to digital rights management protection, Cognella ebook files expire after six months. Similar to when an individual borrows an ebook from a library, the digital file disappears from the reader’s device after a certain amount of time. We are able to offer print add-on solutions for students who’d like to retain textbook content beyond the ebook expiration date, as well as those who simply prefer to use both formats throughout the term.
Cognella is committed to keeping up with the ever-expanding digital market. We price our titles competitively to give students what they need for their courses at a reasonable price. Because our ebooks come with an expiration date, we want students to feel they are getting the best value. Accordingly, Cognella ebooks cost less than their paperback counterparts.
Digital Licensing Considerations
If your book contains third-party content, there are digital rights permissions to take into consideration. Not every reading or image in your manuscript may be offered digitally. If a single reading or image cannot be distributed digitally, we will simply extract it from the electronic file and amend the table of contents, if needed. If two or more pieces of third-party content are unavailable for distribution, your text cannot be released in digital format.
