In an attempt to connect educators and researchers with publishers, we’ve collected these links to publishers and publishing houses that keep a catalogue of ESL/EFL, teaching and other educational material.
From year to year and season to season there is no way to be certain of the exact catalogue that each publisher will carry, so it is wise to visit each publisher often.
This link list of publishers is focused on book publishers. You may also be interested in our links to journals that specialize in education, linguistics/language and games & play.
If you feel we’re missing a publisher or would like to add your own, please contact us and we’ll be happy to add them to the list.
