How we work with publishers

Numerous educational resources are published each year to support IB curriculums and it can be challenging for teachers to know which are the best selections for their needs. To help with this, the IB collaborates with established publishers to co-publish textbooks. This means all content has been reviewed by our subject matter experts to ensure high quality guidance and support for IB teaching and learning.


Educational content reviewed and approved by the IB 

All textbooks that have been reviewed and approved by IB are published with the ”In-cooperation with IB” logo. The logo signifies that the content in the textbook has been reviewed by the IB to ensure it fully aligns with current IB curriculum and offers high-quality guidance and support for IB teaching and learning. Textbooks that do not carry ”In-cooperation with IB” logo have not been through the IB quality assurance process. However, co-published textbooks are not essential or required to deliver IB qualifications.

Resources co-published with the International Baccalaureate:

  • Align fully with current IB curriculum
  • Have passed IB’s rigorous quality-assurance process
  • Were reviewed by IB subject matter experts
  • Are appropriate for IB World Schools
