Frustrated Professor

Are you frustrated by the content of texts available for your upper-level, graduate and executive education courses?

Do you find yourself either not assigning text books or teaching from your own materials rather than the assigned text?

This is exactly the situation with which we found ourselves … resulting in our use of self-authored teaching notes along with cases and published articles.

When we contacted traditional publishers about publishing our materials as a textbook, we were told we needed to broaden our content such that it was consistent with currently available texts.

This was precisely what we did not wish to do, leading us to form Legerity Digital Press as a vehicle for publishing our book and … perhaps yours!

The mission of Legerity Digital Press is to publish textbooks that offer innovative, cutting-edge content not available from other publishers. Currently, our editorial scope is limited to content focusing on information systems, information management and quantitative methods.

We are interested in books of all sizes – from small books of only a few chapters that might cover just a segment of course to larger books covering an entire course. We are especially interested in textbooks that can be written in a modular fashion (that is, the chapters can stand alone from each other, thus making it easy for instructors to adopt only those chapters that fit well with a course to be taught. We do recognize, however, that a modular approach is not appropriate for courses where the material covered in later course segments is heavily dependent on material covered in earlier course segments. We are also especially interested in textbooks whose content, after appropriate revision, could be targeted at a professional audience.

Our textbooks are available only in digital form … enabling us to price our books very competitively, to offer very attractive royalty rates, to revise content in an accelerated fashion, and to sell books as a complete volume or as selected chapters.

Our digital textbooks come in .pdf format with full search, highlighting and note taking functions. Our files can be used on any computer, tablet or phone. Our digital textbooks are permanent, not a rental. Once you buy the file, you own it.
