At S. CHAND, book publishing is a team effort that is guided by the curriculum requirements for every subject. Within this framework authors, scholars and writers conceive the idea for a book, frame a scholarly approach and write the manuscript. The team of editors, content experts and reviewers evaluate the manuscript for accuracy of content, appropriateness of writing style for grade level, adherence to Board curriculum guidelines and effectiveness of the pedagogy.

We at S. CHAND conduct exhaustive research including learner verification and focus group studies to define the content that should be in a textbook. We also rely on the expertise and extensive classroom experience of our authors, development staff and reviewers to craft content that is accessible to students. Effective content includes the important concepts that all students need to learn, addresses variable learning styles and incorporates teaching and learning techniques that ensures that students master the concept. We believe in the approach in which it will be most effective in the classroom and most competitive in the marketplace.

Our range of publications includes all subjects in schools, colleges, books on professional courses such as engineering, computer science, management, accountancy and for all competitive exams. In addition to this, we have a large collection of reference books, dictionaries and encyclopedias. And it’s a matter of pride for us to know that some of our books have been in active circulation for over six decades now. Our books are widely accepted in the domestic as well as international market.
