Abstract— Open textbook initiatives have appeared as an alternative to traditional publishing aiming at the production of non-copyrighted educational resources. In this paper we review some cases which used different strategies favoring the adoption of open textbook initiatives. These strategies were conceptually linked with the notion of innovation adoption, framed in models of social diffusion of innovations. In addition, the major dimensions inherent to these strategies, are identified and extracted from such review.
