Click on ‘Order Inspection Copy’ link and it will be added to your basket automatically. Click the ‘Checkout’ button on the shopping basket pop-up when you are ready and follow the onscreen instructions to complete your purchase.

Books which you may wish to adopt in class sets are available on inspection. You may retain the inspection copy for up to 60 days. Within that period you may: 
i) keep the book free of charge, provided you purchase, or plan to purchase, 15 copies or more within the next academic year; or
ii) purchase the title at the published price; or
iii) return it to us in mint condition, you will be liable for any postage costs incurred in returning the items to us.

Books less likely to be adopted for class use are available on approval. Within 30 days you must either: 
i) purchase the book at the published price; or
ii) return it to us in mint condition, you will be liable for any postage costs incurred in returning the items to us.

Please note:
1. Inspection and approval copies are only sent to educational establishments, not private addresses. Books are sent carriage free, but their return is at the establishment's expense. 
2. Not all of our titles are available on inspection, in which case no inspection copy button will appear on the page. If you have any queries about ordering a title on inspection please use the feedback button, which appears on every page to send us a message.

What is an eInspection copy and how does it work?
An eInspection copy is an online version of a book, available to institutions only. eInspection copies are available to view and browse as many times as you like for 30 days after you first click the link, after which the link will expire. You can also forward this link to colleagues so that they can view the eInspection copy too.
