Open Air sees e-book sales success by publishing in the App Store

Open Air sees e-book sales success by publishing in the App Store | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Paid Content is a fantastic blog for freelance and office professionals that covers paid-content business models for furthering the reach of your work.
Marianela Camacho Alfaro's insight:

"Open Air sells exponentially more titles through the App Store than it does via the iBookstore, between 10 to 30 times as much depending on the situation. Originally the company just published their books through the App Store, but when iBooks Author was launched, the company adapted its titles for the new market. What they thought would be a massive jump in sales turned out to be just another smaller market."

No, Institutional Licensing is Not the Solution to Textbook Prices | The Digital Reader

No, Institutional Licensing is Not the Solution to Textbook Prices | The Digital Reader | Ebook and Publishing | Scoop.it
Textbook prices have been rising faster than healthcare for decades. this has inspired the growth in use of open educational resources and even degree programs that don't require paid textbooks. Arthur Attwell, on the other hand, has a different solution. He wants schools to license textbooks just like they currently license access to academic journals. From Medium: For years in South Africa, the textbook-publishing industry has face real threats to its future, because?—?faced with non-delivery of books?—?government is desperate to change the way it buys them. Other countries face similar challenges. Government officials often cite the ‘high price of books’ as a key issue. Whether you buy the state’s argument or not, the system is going to change, and publishers can either lead the change or be changed.
