Students at more than 1,000 institutions across the U.S. are now using a FlatWorld textbook.

BOSTON, October 30, 2018 — FlatWorld, a publisher of college learning materials that are both affordable and high-quality, today announced that students at more than 1,000 institutions across the U.S. have adopted a FlatWorld textbook during the fall 2018 semester.

“The incredible adoption FlatWorld has seen during the fall 2018 semester reflects interest from professors and students in using textbooks that are peer-reviewed, low-cost, and complete with comprehensive supporting materials,” commented Alastair Adam, Co-CEO of FlatWorld. “Many publishers claim to offer affordable and high-quality textbooks, but there are often strings attached. For instance, some publishers push students to sign up for Netflix-like subscription models that include books they don’t need. Others only offer bare-bones digital access, skipping important components such as homework and instructor supplements, or the option to purchase a physical copy of the textbook.”

“FlatWorld’s model is simple. All of our textbooks are affordable and high quality, and they can be purchased in both print and digital formats directly through our site,” he added.

FlatWorld offers more than 135 peer reviewed titles across more than 20 academic subjects, including accounting, business law, chemistry, communication, economics, finance, health and nutrition, management and organizational behavior, marketing, political science, psychology, sociology and more. The majority of FlatWorld’s textbooks cost between $24.95 and $29.95 for digital access, which includes access to homework assignments and other resources such as instructor supplements at no additional charge. Students also have the option of purchasing a full-color print copy for an additional $10 to $25.

FlatWorld’s most popular titles for the fall 2018 semester include:
Information Systems: A Manager’s Guide to Harnessing Technology, by John Gallaugher; Communication in the Real World, by Richard G. Jones, Jr.; Principles of Management, by Tayla Bauer, Berrin Erdogan, and Jeremy Short; and Exploring Business, by Karen Collins.
