Glencoe Strikes Again

It turns out that there are even more versions of the Science Voyages 2000 series by


In some cases textbook publisher produce separate state editions of certain book series

to meet the specific needs of various state boards of education. Some large purchasers

like California, Texas and Florida purchase enough copies of a text that they can

influence the editing of the text they will eventually buy.

With Science Voyages 2000 we have discovered that there are California student and teacher

editions of the middle school series. The images used in these editions

differ to some degree from the images used in the previous series. In some cases

images found in one book in the general edition are found in a different book in the

series in the California edition. For more background on this topic see

(Story 253)

and (Story 260)

that were published earlier this fall.

The ISBN numbers for the California student edition of Science Voyages are:

Red Book   


Green Book   


Blue Book   


The ISBN for the teachers edition of the Red Book is: 002-8286324. At this writing we

have been unable to determine the ISBN numbers for the Green and Blue books, but we

assume that since there is a teachers edition for one, there is also a teachers edition

for the other two.

It is recommended that photographers and agents who have images in the Science Voyages

series demand a complete list of the versions of this series that have been published.

At that point if would be wise to either purchase a single copy of every book in the

series, or join together with other photographers whose names are included in the credits

in order to get access to copies to determine whether or not your images have been used.

It appears that you can not trust Glencoe to supply that information.
