UTS ePress relaunches leading title with tekReader interactive platform

UTS ePRESS, a leader in open access scholarly publishing, has chosen tekReader, an Australian publishing innovation, as the web based eReader platform for republishing its successful Anatomy Quizbook.

The Anatomy Quizbook is an interactive learning text that helps students, tutors, and anyone interested in anatomy learn, test, and improve their knowledge of the human body. Readers are presented with carefully selected questions and diagrams addressing core learning in clinically-relevant anatomy. This selective rather than exhaustive approach will especially suit time-poor scholars. Regular self-testing will also ensure a robust and strategic understanding of the subject matter.
Originally published in PDF, UTS ePRESS have now relaunched the Anatomy QuizBook in tekReader an interactive publication format that combines the power of the web with the user experience of a contained publication that intuitively reflows to optimise reading on any device. You can now access the Anatomy Quizbook for free on tekReader @ https://utsepress.tekreader.com

 
Belinda Tiffen, Director of UTS ePRESS, said;
“The Anatomy Quizbook has been one of our most successful published texts to date. We wanted to make the Quizbook an engaging learning experience through interactive design elements, which we could not fully achieve in PDF. By republishing it in tekReader we can now offer our readers a web based publication with an immersive, interactive, reading experience that intuitively reflows for an optimal reading experience on any device, mobile or PC. This any-device capability is an important aspect of our mission as an open access publisher to make UTS ePRESS scholarly publications widely accessible. tekReader’s browser based eReader also means we’ll be able to use analytics to track audience behaviours which will better inform future product development”.

Don Stolee founder and CEO of eGloo Technologies and tekReader’s creator said;
“We’re delighted to be partnering with such a leading University and open access publisher. tekReader’s innovation is a perfect fit for UTS and the ePRESS as part of its aim to advance scholarly communication through new modes of technology. tekReader is not just an eReader or publishing system but, being API first, content and multimedia published through tekReader can be easily integrated and merged across different platforms including the University’s learning management system.”

Editorial Welcome: Special Issue on Ethnocracy

James Anderson

ABSTRACT

This Special Issue of Cosmopolitan Civil Societies Journal focuses on the domination of social and political relations by Ethnocracy – rule or would-be rule by an ethnic group or ethnos, as distinct from Democracy or rule by the demos of all the people. Ethnocracy encompasses state regimes and associated political movements and parties that discriminate systematically in favour of a particular ethnic group (or groups) and against others. When we proposed the Special Issue in late 2014 ethnocratic practices were as prevalent as they had ever been; and now two years later they appear to be on the increase with an ethno-populist upsurge and the election or threatened election of governments pursuing ethnocratic agendas. From India to the USA, from Russia to Hungary, leading politicians openly discriminate against ethnic ‘others’ to attract support from ‘their own’ ethnic groups; across the European Union and in other liberal democracies they increasingly scapegoat ‘immigrants’ to hide their own inadequacies and further their political objectives. Now, more than ever, it is critical that the dynamics of ethnocracy are more clearly understood. This Issue documents the logics of ethnocracy in a variety of different contexts, posing questions about how it develops and how it can be challenged.
