Abstract and Keywords

In the first part of this chapter, we will briefly outline the main characteristics of educational publishing that are common in the majority of developed and developing countries. In the second part, we will demonstrate how, in different countries, some of these common characteristics have been modified in accordance with different prevalent values as well as different educational systems. We will also discuss how digitization has changed educational publishing and why ‘the logic of the classroom’ has led to the digitization of educational materials moving slower than expected by digital pundits. We will examine how these changes have affected trade publishing as well as how the skills and competencies of educational publishers differ from the skills and competencies inherent in trade publishing.

Keywords: Educational publishing, e-textbook, textbooks, educational systems, approval procedures, reading, digital reading
