Open textbooks are licensed under creative commons licenses or public domain. They are available for free to students in multiple formats. Faculty can make changes to the textbook, combine them with other resources, and share their derivative or ancillary works openly.
Below are textbooks of interest to social work educators. OSWE serves as a publisher of open textbooks and as a clearinghouse for open textbooks in social work and related disciplines. We are also happy to help any aspiring authors with their textbook projects. Email Matt.
