IGI Global Continues to Broaden the Scope for Classrooms

By Sharlene Oong on May 7, 2019

Finding suitable resources for courses has always been a challenge for college and university professors. Vetting materials that fit their course criteria and their institution’s guidelines, as well as ensuring it is made affordable for students is a laborious, time consuming process. However, with the increasing responsibility of these faculty members between teaching and instructing students, personal research, campus involvement, and more, professors are faced with tight time constraints while trying to select the best possible publication for their course.

As explained in a The Scientist article on how professors select titles, “Approaches range from an individual professor's quick "flip-test," giving each contender a five-minute perusal, to committees or entire departments that meticulously evaluate each of a few front-runners. Some harried professors fantasize each semester about tossing the books down a flight of stairs and choosing the one that lands first.”


IGI Global, a leading international academic publisher, is committed to disseminating the most pioneering research that enhances and expands research discoveries and the academic community. As such, IGI Global offers a robust course adoption program for professors looking to include the timeliest, peer-reviewed research into their classroom.

Additionally, IGI Global’s course adoption program can also be integrated into corporate and business settings. One of IGI Global’s notable multi-volume reference publications, Handbook of Research on Computerized Occlusal Analysis Technology Applications in Dental Medicine, edited by Robert B. Kerstein, DMD, a former clinical professor at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, USA & Private Dental Practice Limited to Prosthodontics and Computerized Occlusal Analysis, USA, is being utilized by Tekscan®, a high-technology company focused on creating sensor technology, data acquisition electronics, and software, in their professional development and technology review courses and certifications.

As a result of this collaboration, IGI Global has worked with Tekscan, Inc., to provide the latest research in their field and patented technology to discuss how to use T-Scan in conjunction with TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) to balance an anatomical orthotic, benefitting the wider orthodontic network.
