Abstract : The digital book market was launched in late 2007 in the United States. Gradually, production and selling of such files also developed in France where, in 2012, many private publishers offer an extensive catalog of digital books. Scientific publishing is also in the process of integrating this digital publication already well advanced in the field of journals. University presses are nowadays starting to publish electronic books. In 2012, the Septentrion University Press has welcomed a new publishing chain integrating digital books production. This editor's production techniques and environment are likely to change, especially in terms of relations with its traditional actors: authors, distributors, broadcasters but also the readers. Through a partnership between institutions, the digital book in French scientific publishing is based on standardization and interoperability.
