EPUB is an e-book file format with the extension .epub that can be downloaded and read on devices like smartphones, tablets, computers, or e-readers. It is a technical standard published by the International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF). The term is short for electronic publication and is sometimes styled ePub.

Main features of EPUB file format:

  • Reflowable document: optimize text for a particular display
  • Fixed-layout content: pre-paginated content can be useful for certain kinds of highly designed content, such as illustrated books intended only for larger screens, such as tablets.
  • Like an HTML web site, the format supports inline raster and vector images, metadata, and CSS styling.
  • Page bookmarking
  • Passage highlighting and notes
  • A library that stores books and can be searched
  • Re-sizable fonts, and changeable text and background colors
  • Support for a subset of MathML
  • Digital rights management—can contain digital rights management (DRM) as an optional layer
