Inspection/Examination Copies

Covid-19 Update
Currently our UK warehouse is working on a limited basis and our US warehouse is closed. We cannot send out paper inspection copies for the time being. If you would like to see a paper inspection copy for one of our books, please follow the instructions below and we will send it out to you as soon as we can.

We will send inspection copies of our textbooks only to academic staff teaching relevant courses at recognised institutions. 

All inspection copies will be sent at our sole discretion and you will be expected to return an Inspection Copy Questionnnaire (which will be sent with the book), or to email your comments to us, once you have evaluated the book. We will chase you for these comments (as they are very useful to us), so please don't request a book if you are not prepared to let us know what you think of it.

Electronic Inspection Copies:
To save money (which is ultimately passed on to the students in higher prices anyway), time and the environment, we prefer to supply electronic inspection copies where possible. This will generally be arranged via one of our partners: we work with VitalSource, RedShelf, Kortext and Kno amongst others. You will have unlimited access to the book for a certain period to enable you to evaluate the book for your course.

Teaching Copies:
If you then decide to recommend the book based on the electronic inspection copy, we will be happy to supply you with a free teaching copy. 

If you would like to see an inspection copy of any of our textbooks, then please send an email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the following information: your full contact details, including a valid postal address; course name and number; enrolment; course start date; current recommended books.
