Online Resources 2012/13
is going on in the world of eBooks and eResources at Taylor & Francis
I hear you ask?
Well, you have come to the right place for an answer, in the form of our glossy centre-spread! Here
we bring you up-to-speed with all our recent developments and tell you how you can get in touch
if you have any questions or need more information.
As we approach 2013, we are seeing more and more institutions and libraries investing in electronic
information products and resources. There is increasingly less space for physical books, and students
are now accessing more information remotely.
A recent IFLA report rightly makes the point that ‘eResources present a number of challenges not
encountered with the selection and acquisition of traditional analogue materials’. For this reason,
at Taylor & Francis we endeavour to offer you as much support as possible to help you integrate our
eProducts into your library as easily as possible.
This year has been a very
exciting one for Taylor & Francis
eBooks. In July we launched
a new eBooks platform at
We are also pleased to unveil
three new eCollections, within
the areas of Education,
Psychology & Mental Health,
and Sport, Exercise & Leisure.
These collections have been
hand-picked by our editorial
teams to bring you the best
cross-section of titles in these
popular areas of study.
If you have any questions at all about our digital products, please get in touch. All our contact details
are on the back page.
We hope you enjoy this update.

From Darwin to Game Theory in 5 moves
The Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy Online is
cross-referenced throughout, allowing students and
researchers to effortlessly jump from one area of
philosophy to another.
To mark the fact that the article for Charles Darwin
was given a facelift this year (thank you to Peter Bowler
of Queen’s University, Belfast!), we thought we would
take REP for a spin and see how far we could get.
And what an interesting journey it turned out to be!
We went from Darwin’s theory of evolution to the
Repeated Games model. If that is all Greek to you,
here’s a little diagram.
