Overview of Adobe Schema eBooks
Our Schema Inventories are now available in a premium eBook format developed by Adobe. Technical terms used for this format are "DRM-Protected PDF eBooks" or "Secure PDF eBooks". (Our eBook does not use the EPUB format.) These PDF eBooks contain the identical Schema Inventories and Forms that are offered through our standard Javelin Reader file; however, they have been secured with sophisticated Adobe DRM protection in eBook form.
On Windows and Mac computers, the Adobe PDF eBook format has been optimized for viewing and printing with software called "Adobe Digital Editions". (We will often refer to this as ADE on our website.) You can download a free version of the ADE app that is compatible with most Windows and Mac computers.
The Adobe eBook format with DRM protection is the "gold standard" for secure eBook and PDF publishing. It is used by most libraries and universities throughout the world, and by most major academic publishers, for distributing textbooks and journal articles in digital form. Google has recently adopted the technology for many of the books offered online. The reason it has been so widely adopted is because the Adobe technology is highly reliable for both eBooks and PDF material, and is almost universally supported across all major "platforms" (devices), as mentioned above.
