Inspection and Desk Copy Policies

Textbooks and anthologies intended for classroom use are available as complimentary inspection copies at the publisher’s discretion. Where available, you will find a link on the book page leading to an order form. Submit your request to us by completing this form online. You may order up to three books per course. We require information as follows:

  • Course name & number
  • Start date and frequency of course
  • Number of students enrolled
  • Texbook currently in use

 Desk copies are also available to instructors who have already required an Equinox text for course use.

Books will only be sent to an academic institution address. They are despatched from our nearest distribution point. 

Where no inspection copy option is indicated, you may contact us to request one (paperback books only).  Please note that in such cases, orders will be invoiced at list price. Your options are (a) return this within 60 days if you decide not to adopt the book (b) adopt the book for classroom use and we will cancel the invoice; in which case please let us know full details of the course (c) pay the invoice and retain the book for your own use.

 Some textbooks have additional online resources or companion websites, which can also be viewed via the book page.

eBook Editions

eBook Inspection Copies are also increasingly available from our site and where available will be supplied in lieu of print for a period of 60 days. Our eBooks are protected by Adobe Digital Editions. For instructions, please refer to the eBook page on this website.
