Sigma Tau Delta is excited to announce the release of our first-ever entirely electronic journals. The 2021 Sigma Tau Delta Review and Rectangle are now available for free for the first time to all of our members. In previous years a select number of copies of the print journals were shipped to each chapter in the United States, with additional copies available for purchase. Since 2009 we have offered a PDF file of the journals as well. In our new shift to an exclusively electronic journal we have expanded downloadable options to include Epub and Mobi files, allowing you now to enjoy reading our journals on your e-reader of choice.
The new e-reader-friendly versions of the 2021 Sigma Tau Delta Journals can be claimed for free through Prolific Works, a free platform for sharing e-books—you will need to create a simple, free account to claim books through Prolific Works. Once you’ve followed the link to our journal simply “claim” the book.
After claiming your book the journal will be added to your Prolific Works library where you will be prompted to get your book. Before clicking “Get my Book” you will need to know what file type your e-reader requires. Epub files are compatible with Nook, Google Play Books, and iBooks. Mobi files are used for Kindle. A PDF file is also included to be used with any other device. You will then have the choice to either download the file to your computer or send it via email. Once you have saved your preferred file type, you simply need to follow your e-reader’s instructions for uploading files. (Tips for transferring files to popular e-reader devices are linked at the bottom of this page.)
If you are working with either a Nook or a Kindle, the absolute easiest way to access your copy of the 2021 Sigma Tau Delta Journals is to download the Prolific Works app through the App Store or Google Play. Once you have claimed our journal, open the Prolific Works app and locate our journal in your library. From there you will be able to open the file directly in your preferred e-reader.
Enjoy reading the best writing and criticism from undergraduate and graduate active chapter members of the Sigma Tau Delta English Honor Society!
