Usage of eBooks

Open Access Books

Some of our books contain a mix of open access and controlled access chapters. This is more common in proceedings than in other types of books.

Front and back matter

Although front matter and back matter are part of each book, they do NOT have a DOI like chapters or reference work entries. Front matter and back matter are considered like abstracts and made freely available. They are not counted in the COUNTER eBook usage reports.
