On her website, Gera Pronk explains the jargon around E-publications and explains why it could be a good idea to create your own E-pub:
What is an E-publication? An E-publication is an electronic publication that can be enhanced or enriched with multimedia content.
What is an enhanced (or enriched) publication? An enhanced (or enriched) publication links an electronic publication – usually a text – with
- (research) data, models, algorithms, images,
- metadata and/or
- post-publication data such as comments or rankings.
An enhanced publication can develop over the course of time. Sources of an enhanced publication are stored at different (sustainable) locations (repositories, digital archives). All content must be referrable or retrievable by (persistent) identifiers.
