You can choose to download your ASM Press ebook purchases in one of two file formats: ePub or PDF.

After you buy a digital book, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to download your ebook. When you log into ASMscience to get your ebook, you will need to choose which format (ePub or PDF) to download.
