Request an inspection copy


E-inspection copies

As part of our support to lecturers, many of our textbooks are available for review as electronic inspection copies. E-inspection copies will only be provided to lecturers teaching a course for which the title(s) may be recommended as a set text. Along with the title(s) requested, we ask that you provide the basic details of your course below, along with your contact details so that we can follow up on your request. E-inspection copy requests will be responded to within 5 working days.


E-inspection copies are made available through VitalSource, for which you will need to set up a free account - details are included in the follow-up email you will receive after submitting your request. E-inspection copies are available on VitalSource for 30 days - the duration can be extended upon request.

Inspection copy feedback and ancillary access

After 30 days, you will receive a short survey requesting feedback about the title(s) received on inspection. If you choose to adopt the book for your course, we will set up access to any accompanying ancillary resources (if available) upon completion of this follow-up survey. Already requested an e-inspection copy and need access to the ancillary materials? You can access the survey directly here.

Print inspection copies

We can no longer send out print inspection copies, unless the book is not available on VitalSource, or a print copy is required for accessibility purposes.


You may request up to 3 titles.
Some of our products are intended as references rather than textbooks. If you are considering using a book not listed above for course adoption, please enter the book ISBN above for review by your sales manager.
