Van Schaik Publishers offers an extensive range of titles as ebooks with all new titles published in both print and digital formats. Most of our titles are available as ebooks from a variety of online sellers. Ebooks are the best solution for students who are not able to visit a bookstore or order print books online. This solution suits students who need to buy the book and have recently started their subject learning. 

The following resellers supply our ebooks:


Booksellers are once again permitted to sell printed books under specified conditions. Online retailers are in full operation and both printers and publishers are able to operate again. Campus bookstores have not resumed operations as university campuses remain closed. Please consult your local booksellers for more information about their status.

  • PowerPoint Slides
  • Answers to textbook questions
  • Test Banks and Solutions
  • Images, Tables and Diagrams from the textbook
