Dr. Reuter converted Reuter Academic Publishing to an open access publisher!
Textbooks have become unaffordable for many students. Whereas tuition has only increased moderately or stayed the same at many institutions of higher education since the Great Recession, textbook prices have increased by 86% since 2005. Even though there are efforts afoot at colleges and universities all over the US to mitigate the impact of this increase on students, many students, especially in STEM courses and Health professions programs, have been unable to purchase required or recommended books.
Having witnessed the struggle of some of his own students, Dr. Reuter decided to convert his publishing company to a hybrid publishing house that will offer all new or revised textbooks and dictionaries as free PDF downloads. He will work with faculty at FGCU and other institutions, hoping to get many of them to adopt this and other open access books for their courses in order to level the playing field for all students and to alleviate socioeconomic discrimination of students.
