English abstract

The publishing industry is a kind of marker that reflects the real state of the society in many aspects: cultural development, socio-economic situation, state of technological development. The latest publishing trends emerge as a response to the modern needs and challenges of humanity and have not only a consequential nature, but also somehow form the cultural trends. In the context of globalization and the active use of digital technology, the issues such as accessibility, barrier, inclusiveness are on the agenda of world publishers. One of the most effective steps on this way is development and promotion of inclusive literature through formation of comprehensive publishing industry. To realze this, the publishing industry faces a number of tasks: educational work among the population, updating the printing base, introducing innovative technologies, training professional personnel from inclusive publishing industry, analytical work, introduction of motivational means. The article is devoted to the analysis of current state of inclusive literature publishing in the context of formation of the newest publishing trend. The international experience of using inclusive editions for educational purposes is explored. To achieve this objective the following tasks are fulfilled in the process of research: a definition of inclusive literature as a separate publishing dimension is formulated; the international experience in studying the issue and level of readers’ awareness of Ukrainian inclusive editionss are studied; the expediency of a comprehensive selection of editions of inclusive literature into a separate dimension is substantiated; the achievements and outstanding problems on the outlined topic are ascertained; the tasks are set and the practical proposals on realization of the certain issue are represented. The peculiarities, outstanding problems and achievements of inclusive literature editions in Ukraine are determined. It is concluded that the publishing dimension of inclusive literature in Ukraine is extremely relevant taking into account active introduction of inclusive education and growth of readership. This topic is not well-researched and has a high social and scientific potential.
