    Cost Savings

    Estimating cost savings is a difficult task with open textbooks and other publications. Below is a snapshot of the algorithm we use to predict cost savings.

    Chapter Cost

    Cost per page (default = $0.10) * Words in the chapter / Words per page (default = 500)

    Chapter Savings

    Chapter cost * (Predicted read count + (Untracked views * Reading likelihood) + PDF downloads)

    Book Cost

    Σ(Chapter cost)

    Book Savings

    (Book cost * PDF downloads) + Σ(Chapter savings)
