A Textbook Excellence Award ("Texty") from the Textbook and Academic Authors Association recognizes current textbooks and learning materials based on criteria established by the group. Judges are veteran authors in appropriate subject areas. Nominations from eight subject areas are reviewed each year from titles with a current or prior year date of publication. A maximum of one award per category[1] is granted annually. The first year this award was granted was 1992.[2]

Subject areas awarded are:

  • Accounting, business and economics
  • Communication, education and performing and visual arts
  • Computer science and engineering
  • Humanities and social sciences
  • Languages and literature
  • Life sciences
  • Math and statistics
  • Physical sciences

Texty Awards are presented at the TAA Awards Ceremony, held during the association’s annual conference in June.[3][4]
