Akademos Report Reveals How Rising Textbook Prices are Impacting Curriculum Choice and Student Academic Success

Exclusive report highlights key trends on college and university student perceptions and behaviors as they relate to textbooks and course materials

Today, we announced the release of an exclusive new white paper that highlights the results of our proprietary 2018 College and University Student Survey on Course Material Purchasing and Bookstore Services. This report provides valuable data and insightful analysis on student perceptions and behaviors as they relate to textbooks and course materials. While the report confirms common assumptions regarding how the rising cost of course materials is a hardship for many students, the study also reveals that students are now, at an increasing rate, choosing not to purchase materials and/or opting out of some classes due to these costs.
