Order information

Order information

Our digital Publications Index offers cross-media access to the publications of the Federal Institute. This page explains the particular characteristics and features of the various formats.

Important information regarding your order

  • All prices include statutory VAT. Shipping costs are not included. Shipping costs are not charged for file downloads.
  • The contractual partner with which you are placing an order (a publishing house or BIBB) will be displayed before you enter into a binding commitment by sending your order.
  • If you place an order with more than one contractual partner, you will receive separate delivery from each publisher. If you order publications for which a charge is made, you will receive separate invoices in the case of deliveries from more than one contractual partner and will also be invoiced for shipping costs for each delivery.
  • All orders for file downloads via BIBB must be paid by credit card.
  • It is not yet possible to place orders from abroad. In such a case, please contact Internetredaktion.

Orders from publishing houses

  • Products from publishing houses are purchased from the publishing houses shown. Orders placed via the Publications Index will be directly processed via the respective publishing houses. In such a case, BIBB acts as an agent only.
  • Publications ordered from a publishing house are subject to the contractual conditions of the publishing house in question. Payment is by invoice.

  • You may cancel any order within two weeks of receipt of goods by contacting the publishing house concerned directly in writing. You do not need to state a reason. Timely dispatch of notification is deemed sufficient for compliance with the deadline. The purchase agreement does not become effective until this cancellation deadline has expired.
