eProducts for Everyone As of 2011, not only institutions but also individual customers can purchase De Gruyter databases, eJournals, and eBooks. eBooks have the same price as the corresponding print publications and are purchased for perpetual use. eJournals and databases for individual use are offered on an annual subscription basis (five price segments from 49 to 299 / 69 to 419 US$) without perpetual access rights. Access is granted by username and password to one simultaneous user. 24h access to individual eBook chapters via pay-per-view (PPV). Offering access to De Gruyters entire online content to end-users guarantees a broad dissemination of each publication.
De Gruyter e-dition More than 50,000 publications from over 260 years of publishing history. Each title is available as an eBook and as a hardcover reprint. All eBooks are full-text searchable, indexed, and provided with DOIs and MARC records. Hardcover reprints are high resolution and finished uniformly with a green cover reminiscent of the historic Göschen cover. e-dition eBooks can be purchased individually, in discounted pick and choose packages, or in fixed best of packages (titles recommended by international scholars). De Gruyter e-dition ensures long-term availability of all De Gruyter titles in whichever format is preferred by the customer.
Print + eBook Bundles Customers ordering both the print and eBook versions of a title simultaneously are granted a bundle price amounting to approximately 140% of the print version price. The bundle offer applies to orders for single titles, for pick and choose packages, for complete and subject packages currently on offer, as well as the best of packages as part of e-dition. Increasingly, libraries and readers of academic literature want parallel access to the eBook with its full-text search function and to the print version as a reading copy. De Gruyter is one of the worlds first publishers to offer an attractive pricing model to meet this need.
Make the Switch: De Gruyter Electronic Series Switch your ongoing De Gruyter print series or multi-volume serial works to eBooks or print + eBook bundles. Customers who convert subscriptions from print to online have the one-time opportunity to obtain the electronic versions of the past volumes published. The respective eBooks can be acquired retrospectively in 5-year increments at a 30% discount. Libraries and their patrons benefit from this conversion in many ways: Space and cost savings, simplified business procedures 24/7 availability of content, multiple search options, download of bibliographic data
Pricing Models for Online Databases Purchase Option (Institutional Customers) One-time purchase price for the basic database content. Annual update fee for supplementary/updated content.

Upon cancellation, the right to use the database expires at the end of the validity period. After 6 years (for a few databases 10 years) of rental use of products which are also offered in the purchase model, institutional customers gain property rights to the database.
