About Academx

There is a growing demand for publishing custom textbooks, laboratory manuals and lecture manuals in most academic courses today.

Academx Publishing Services provides the resources for departments and faculty to professionally publish the works they have personally authored that are tailored for their courses and all at a lower cost to your students and a royalty for you or your department. Academx improves the teaching and learning experience books designed specifically for your course, with customized content, low quantities, professional design and printing, and that can be updated each semester if necessary. Your custom book will be focused on the way you teach allowing for maximized effectiveness between the in-class lecture and outside reading/assignments.

The bookstore and sales

Your course books will be sold through the bookstore. You work with Academx on the contents and then include “your book” in your order requirement to the bookstore. We will work with the bookstore to be sure books are on the shelf at the beginning of the semester. Academx’s products are bookstore “Friendly”—we do not bundle or have extraneous pieces making inventory easy to store and sell. Since you are creating the course materials, Academx will pay a royalty to you and your department. Our royalty structure is designed around your needs and the requirements of the department.
