The Open University of Israel, Israel’s largest
university, operates as a distance education university and publishes its
own textbooks in Hebrew. The largest academic press in Israel, it publishes
close to 1,000,000 books annually, both for its own students and for
students and faculty in all other Israeli universities.
Most Open University publications are written by
leading scholars in Israel or abroad in cooperation with a course team and
reader-advisors, who are also leading authorities in the field. Some of
these have already been translated into English and subsequently published
by distinguished publishers abroad, such as Yale University Press and
Boston University Press.
We are sure you will find topics of interest
among these titles. The books have been written for self-study and as a
result are excellent textbooks which can serve as the basis for university
courses in the various fields of study, but they can also provide
fascinating reading for the general public. The Open University welcomes
cooperation and joint projects which pool world knowledge, culture and
information to produce high quality, aesthetic, state-of-the-art
publications of broad, international interest.
