LiU E-Press uses the most common file formats for web publishing such as PostScript, PDF (Portable Document Format) and HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language).
LiU E-Press also publish sound files. We prefer the MPEG format,
Moving Pictures Expert
Group, which is a standard for compressing data like video and stereo
You need a software installed on your computer which can play MP3 and MPEG4 files and, of course, loud speakers connected to the computer. Most computer platforms have free software for MP3 and MPEG4 files.
We use different file format for presenting of videos: .flv (Flash Video File, Flash Player require a software installation and the video plays in a separate window), .mov (Apple QuickTime Movie must be installed on your computer) and .mpg (MPEG Video File can be played in Windows Media Player or Real Player).
PDF (Portable Document Format) is a presentation format for documents that preserves their layout in a platform independent way. The program Acrobat Reader is required in order to read a pdf file. The program is free of charge and can be downloaded from Adobe. Click on the icon below to get Acrobat Reader:
If your present Acrobat Reader has difficulties reading a pdf file published at www.ep.liu.se you probably need to update to a new version of Acrobat Reader.

Text in html-files, such as abstracts presented on www.ep.liu.se, can sometimes contain special or national characters, e.g. Greek. The Greek characters are used as symbols in scientific and technical works especially as mathematical operators (Σ, Ω, π or μ). Other characters such as arrows, currency symbols (, £, $ and ¥) and accented letters (á, ç, è, ñ, ô and ü) may also occur (if the letters in brackets are unreadable on your computer you probably need to update your web browser or/and download an extended character set). All characters on www.ep.liu.se should be presented properly by your web browser if you have the latest version of your web browser installed.
