With our improved errata tool, we keep you updated by emailing you each step of the way after you submit an errata suggestion. To maintain our editorial and peer-review standards, we send errata reports to qualified subject matter experts for review. Once the experts weigh in, we implement any changes in the online version of the book as soon as possible. For most books, we post errata-updated PDFs and iBooks over the summer (when substantial changes are present).

For more information on the errata submission process, view our blog post on The New and Improved OpenStax Errata Tool.
