IRISH EDUCATIONAL PUBLISHERS’ ASSOCIATION SURVEY RESULTS FOR 2012
(20/08/2013) E-textbooks Continued growth in availability and adoption of e-textbooks was recorded by the recent survey of the Irish Educational Publishers’ Association (IEPA) which saw publications sales figures rise from less than 100 e-textbooks in 2010 to almost 40,000 in use in 2012. Representing a small element of overall sales at about 1 %, the IEPA expect that usage of e-textbooks will continue to increase. While e-textbooks are about 30% cheaper than their printed equivalents, reflecting savings on print and distribution costs, most of this saving is offset by the 23% VAT which is not payable on printed books. read more
