Keeping Educators and Professors in Charge: Personalizing Reference Textbooks

Due to the influence of technology, the notion of digital textbooks has been refined and revisited over and over again in the last 5-7 years.

An Automated Software-Backed Process from XML to Rich, Enhanced EPUB 3

Publishers, publishers’ service providers and training institutions all manage complex editorial workflows. When aiming at publishing content in both print and digital form, it is critical for all stakeholders to efficiently manage core data (text, images, links, …). An efficient data management either by storing data as XML in a content management system (CMS) or database is indispensable to ease up production requirements for multi-channels content distribution. Turning data into print is mostly handled by software products like InDesign. Yet when it comes to EPUB 3 production, there are only a few alternatives, which turn out to be quite basic and rough, mostly because styles, layout and other digital specifications have not been correctly approached in data transformation processes like XSLT, which perform well only with simple documents but show limitations when dealing with complex structures and layouts.

On the one hand, bridging the gap between print and digital form within the same program provides some welcome advantages to editors. On the other hand, an increasing number of people realize that eBooks are not just about converting a print-aimed file and polish it when the work is completed in ID. There is a need to re-factor and redesign the content in order to match capabilities offered by digital multimedia devices. For editors looking for efficient digital publishing workflow from InDesign, there are a number of tasks that can only be achieved in a specific software tool dedicated to digital publishing:

From book design … to eBook design

Most eBooks released on the market today replicate their print counterparts almost exactly and this, from both a pagination and a look and feel perspective. I’m not saying it isn’t right. There are many reasons for this, the amount of time and effort having been invested in laying out and designing the book being the most commonly expressed. In these cases, we could say that it is the print production workflow, rather than the user experience, that drives the eBook production.
