The EPrints database provides access to the current journal production of institutes of the Czech Academy of Sciences and a selection of the production of external publishers. It contains full texts of papers from a total of twenty-three periodicals covering a period from 1991 to the present day (this period may differ for individual periodicals). The external publishers represented are the University of Ostrava (Historica), the publishing house Karolinum (Acta Universitatis Carolinae. Oeconomica. Czech Economic Review) and the Society for the History of Sciences and Technology (The History of Science and Technology). The texts of the papers are in the Czech and English languages. A merger with the digital library Kramerius is anticipated in the future.
