The future of training

Ebook use in the training world is widespread as organisations seek to provide the most efficient way to connect with employees worldwide and at home.

More insight into the impact elearning has in today's organisations, along with some creative ways to engage end users can be found in our recent article "Ebooks and elearning - partnering for success".

A 2015 Jinfo article on the use of ebooks across the sectors looked closely at Jinfo's original research covering which industries are leading the way in ebook use in enterprise, and which factors are stimulating growth.

Interestingly, in contrast to the vast use of elearning across the globe, ebook sales have reportedly been dropping and steadying, according to the Association of American Publishers (AAP). It reported that in the first 9 months of 2016, ebook sales in the US dropped by 18.7%, compared to the same period in 2015. Similar results (a 17% drop) were found by the Publishers Association in the UK.

Given this vast market across the globe, we were interested to compile this market landscape of subscription sources for pharma and biotechnology ebooks and portals.
