At this time, Oxford University Press does not have a separate electronic edition of NETS. However, NETS is currently available as a module in Accordance, and we expect that other electronic Bible databases will also license it from the Press in the future.
We have provided a list of corrections and emendations incorporated into the second printing of 2009. This list is also in PDF format.
