Inspection copies

Inspection copies for Higher Education Institutions

As a service to lecturers, we make many of our titles available free on inspection, provided that you are teaching a course for which they may be recommended as set texts.

In return, we ask that you give us your feedback by completing and returning this online comment form.

To request an inspection copy, find the book you want in our online catalogue and click on Request an Inspection Copy. If there is no Request an Inspection Copy link, the book is not available on inspection. We will ask you to enter some basic details about your course, and to provide your institutional address for the order.

Please note that:

  • inspection copies are limited to single copies
  • you can only request one title per online request
  • usually an ebook will be supplied, if you specifically want a print version you will need to contact your rep or email us to request one
  • all inspection copies are supplied at the discretion of Oxford University Press
