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

‘‘What

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

www.tandfebooks.com.

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.

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.

Prisoner’s Dilemma

Where there is chance to be

taken for a sucker combined

with opportunity for a free

ride, e.g. sharing food or

hogging it.
