TAA Announces 2020 Textbook Award Winners

Twenty-nine textbooks have been awarded 2020 Textbook Awards by the Textbook & Academic Authors Association (TAA). Seven textbooks received William Holmes McGuffey Longevity Awards, 14 textbooks received Textbook Excellence Awards, and eight textbooks received Most Promising New Textbook Awards.
 View the 2020 Textbook Award Winners.

The McGuffey Longevity Award recognizes textbooks and learning materials whose excellence has been demonstrated over time. The Textbook Excellence Award recognizes excellence in current textbooks and learning materials. The Most Promising New Textbook Award recognizes excellence in 1st edition textbooks and learning materials.

The awards are being presented during the kick-off event for the 2020 Summer Webinar Series, on Friday, June 12, 2020.

For more than 20 years, TAA has supported textbook and academic authors through these highly-recognized awards, given annually to emerging and veteran published authors in eight subject categories.

Textbooks and learning materials can be nominated by authors or publishers. The awards are open to members and non-members. Works are judged by textbook authors and subject matter experts for their merits in four areas:

  • Pedagogy
  • Content/Scholarship
  • Writing
  • Appearance & Design

Each entry is judged on its own merit in these four areas regardless of other nominations in the same field or category. Self-published books and e-books are welcome.

Nominations for the 2021 Textbook Excellence Awards ("Texty"), McGuffey Longevity Awards ("McGuffey") and Most Promising New Textbook Awards will be open September 1 to November 1, 2020.
