Electronic Publishing-on-Demand (EPoD) is an on-demand service that allows books to be published in individual books or very small print runs. Unlike Print-on-Demand( PoD) and Book-on-Demand( BoD), which are about printing books, Electronic-Publishing-on-Demand is about publishing them.
Due to on-demand techniques, short runs of books can be produced inexpensively and quickly without the publisher having to make large investments. As a result, publishers of on-demand books can produce them promptly, market them themselves in print form but also as e-books, and pay authors higher royalties. The texts can be stored in a wide variety of file formats.
