Nature to Release Digital Textbook with New Pricing Plan

Nature Publishing will announce a new biology textbook on Tuesday, and the textbook will have a digital only edition.

The $49 digital textbook will include lifetime access to regularly update content that can be access online, from a tablet, and it can even be printed. The California State University has already signed up for the new textbook, and it will be assigning it on 3 campuses starting this fall. Two of the campuses will  leave purchasing the textbook up to the students, and the third will buy a site license from nature publishing.
