Textbook Sales Drop, and University Presses Search for Reasons
Howard, Jennifer
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n4 pA10 Sep 2008
This article reports that textbook sales are falling at many university presses, a trend that has accelerated in the past couple of months. That's the word from press directors anxious about the decline but unsure what's causing it or how to stop it. Not every press has been affected. Two of the biggest players, Oxford University Press and Cambridge University Press, said that their sales remain strong. Another major academic publisher, the University of Chicago Press, has not been spared.
