AIFS EPUB publications

A selection of Institute publications are being made available in EPUB 2.0 format. EPUB is an open standard format managed by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF).

The Institute’s EPUBs are free of digital rights management (DRM) restrictions and therefore may be read using any software or hardware that is capable of opening EPUB 2.0 files.
