The Publisher Portal is intended for all Estonian publishers, where they can:
- announce new publications,
- apply for standard numbers for publications,
- archive files,
- manage publication-related legal rights, and
- view statistics on how their publications are used.
To use the portal, users must first create a publisher account. Publisher accounts can be created by any legal or private person engaged in publishing in the Republic of Estonia. Portal users must be pre-authenticated, i.e. log in with their user credentials, ID card, or Mobile ID. To do this, you must register as a user of the National Library of Estonia.
On 1 January 2017, a new Legal Deposit Copy came into effect, making digital publications and the output-ready files of printed publications as important as printed publications. As of January 1st, book publishers who also have a standard number application in the portal can submit the legal deposit copies of their publications via the Publisher Portal. Publishers of periodicals are currently still required to upload the output-ready files, i.e. print files, of their newspapers and magazines to the FTP server of the National Library of Estonia.
