We launched our eBook platform at the end of 2016/early 2017 and now offer virtually all our backlist in this format with new titles made available simultaneously as print and eBook.

A limited number of backlist titles will remain available through the major content aggregators such as Dawsonera, Ebrary, EBL, EBSCO, MyiLibrary but new titles are not being added to those collections.

For Libraries

EquinoxOnline can now offer libraries a number of ways to access our new and backlist titles online, and free trials are available.

For Individuals

As soon as an eBook is available to buy from our website, that option will appear on the book’s individual webpage.

After submitting your payment details, you will receive an order confirmation by email  which will provide a link to take you to your new homepage on the Equinox Online site where you will be able to access the eBook. The process of setting up your order may take as long as 24 hours because it is currently a manual process.  By placing an order, you will be registering as a user on the site. Your eBook purchases will reside on your user homepage. From this page, you will also be able to access any other electronic content you may have previously subscribed to, such as a journal.
