Oracle Publishers Program works with participating industry publishers to support the creation of high-quality technology books and related materials that focus on Oracle technologies. Published technology books are valuable in many ways, including raising awareness of Oracle products; making Oracle technology approachable for beginners; helping our customers be more successful; increasing product adoption; and generating buzz for new products and technologies. Oracle believes that publishers and authors are critical evangelists for Oracle, and that it is important to support the publication of Oracle technology books for the retail marketplace.
The Oracle Publishers Program provides support to member publishers by providing access, whenever possible, to product information, early product releases, and Oracle experts, thus helping improve time to market for Oracle technology titles. Publishers Program members are expected to participate in the annual Oracle Publishers Seminar held in San Francisco during the week of Oracle’s annual technology conferences—Oracle OpenWorld and JavaOne.

The Publishers Seminar is an invitation-only event for active members of Oracle’s Publishers Program and their nominated authors. The seminar gives publishers and authors the opportunity to learn about product directions through presentations by Oracle executives and forums with key product areas.
Attendees will share lunch and in-depth conversation with Oracle product experts. The Publishers Seminar benefits publishers and authors as well as Oracle, as it provides Oracle with the opportunity to influence editorial plans and get books published by the main publishing houses on the topics we deem most valuable.
