Electronic edition or E-edition is a convincing reality in all occidental countries. If scientific journals opened the door, consolidating themselves as irreversible digital paradigms in the academic scope, the scientific monographs, and also the most commercial ones, have started a way that is holding on gradually after many years with contradictory signals in which ones advances and backwards were linked to the technological successes and failures. The international reports and studies confirm this situation. The e-books production and demand growth ratio has increased a 20% approximately in last years.

In academic scope, e-edition in general and e-books as specific case actually are the most natural and usual way to reach the final users. Thus, the user, as the final link of the editorial chain, is a very significant and critical element for every product introduction, and they are showing a growing receptivity degree regarding the new editorial media and products. The surveys developed by Springer, Publishers Communication Groups, Centre for Information Behaviour and the Evaluation of Research (CIBER), the Joint Information Systems Committee, etc. confirm this assumption. The survey respondents in different contexts are manifesting a great and increasing interest about electronic formats just in order to make digital documentation searches oriented in both academic and recreational reading areas. Besides, these surveys are presenting also an increasing and definitive use of the digital media for the next years.

This way, e-edition has been consolidated as the most natural option in the consumer practices of a significant amount of citizens, both in academic and general-interest scopes. Therefore, the educational proposals according to this new scientific communication media are more usual right now, making easier the accessibility, the mobility and the online reading.
