About eBooks


REFEREX

eBook Background


The first electronic book was created in the
early 1970’s


Text only and housed on mainframes


Electronic books would ‘wait’ over 20
years until the technology could better
sustain commercial ebooks


Around 2000ish, commercial ebook
products picked up steam in the STM
market


Today, significant S&T players include
NetLibrary, Knovel, McGraw
-
Hill, CRC
Press, Pearson (Safari)

Books are not journals!


Different commercial models in print


Subscription vs. one off


Different format


Journals highly structured


Different content


New discovery vs. established reference


Peer review vs. expertise

So what is it?

Referex : Ref∙ur∙eks



Referex Engineering aims to be the
leading
electronic reference product

offering the broadest and deepest
available coverage of engineering
reference


Turn to Ei


Engineering Village 2 is the leading
discovery platform for the engineering
community.


Offering a flagship databases Compendex,
Inspec, netBase etc.


Strategy for growth calls for active
‘acquisition’ of engineering content to
support research and information needs

History of ebook success


CRC netBASE product line

The basics


Referex Engineering aims to be the
leading electronic reference collection
in engineering with unparalleled
breadth and depth


Fully utilizes search technology from
market leading discovery platform,
Engineering Village 2


Comprised of over 350 reference
titles in 3 core collections

3
Referex Engineering Collections


Each collections is comprised of
100+ handbooks, monographs and
professional reference texts


Mechanical and Materials


Electronic and Electrical


Chemical Petrochemical and Process

Approach to Publishing




Our books provide engineers in practice, training and
education with the information they need to succeed.

A few broad, general references (“Standard
Handbooks…”) complemented by focused titles that
drill down into more detailed knowledge.



By Engineers for Engineers


Demystifying Technology series ™


Embedded Technology series™


Rules of Thumb series

Broad, high

In the trenches…

Approach to Publishing





Our Books
provide breadth & depth, for engineers in the
trenches


Provide training materials to undergraduate and graduate
engineering students, including at the vocational and technician
levels


Enable problem
-
solving, lifetime learning and continuing
professional development by supplying accessible, current, and
required resources for professionals.


Focus on compliance and qualification
-
driven content where
possible (c.f. legal/regulatory/certification/qualification issues)


Deliver collected wisdom in current and cutting
-
edge
technologies in “focused” handbook and reference book form


Innovate all the above and combine electronic, database, e
-
learning, eBook, or other applicable forms as appropriate.

…which means that…

The book content comprising Referex is of
superior quality, timeliness and focus.

It offers vertical depth of coverage, concentrated
in the 3 collection areas, which is unrivalled in
competing products

Within the 3 collections there is breadth of
content to satisfy wide
-
ranging search needs.



Complementary

to 30,000ft, broad viewpoint
content offered by CRC Press/EngNetBase
Product.
