An E-Print is an HTML version of a paper that can be hosted on a web site for viewing by multiple users. E-Prints are sold on the basis of a certain number of downloads or a period of time, and the purchaser is alerted once this limit has been reached. Users can also download a printable PDF of the E-Print. The provided E-Print link can be placed on a website, emailed or added to USB flash drives.

E-Prints are encrypted and require a one-time internet connection which allows your E-Print to validate itself. Click here for more information on E-Prints:
