E-books and student purchasing

All our textbooks now publish simultaneously in print and as e-books. They typically offer a mobile experience with the convenience of anywhere, anytime access. Some e-books are being developed to take the format further and offer a fully immersive learning experience, packed with self-assessment activities and multimedia content to support your learning.

Purchase options for students


Our e-book typically cost less than the print equivalent. They are available for you to purchase on perpetual access, or for a 12 month rental, directly from VitalSource and Kortext.

The e-books are usually available to purchase from these retailers as soon as they publish. It is not possible to pre-order e-books.

We've chosen to work with e-book providers who offer the best user-experience both in terms of purchase options, as well as functionality and presentation of our content. We’d welcome your feedback on any aspect of your experience using an OUP e-book.

Online study tools

If you prefer to use a print textbook you can still benefit from online study tools. Most of our books are supported by free to use, and easy to access online resources. Find the resources that support your textbook here.

Trove collections

Our Law Trove and Politics Trove websites contain subject collections of our textbooks from across our market-leading law list, and politics list.

Intuitive functionality, powerful navigation and search, and supportive features enhance the learning experience; whilst access to a range of titles encourages wider reading.

You can find out more and purchase collections directly from www.oup.com from £45.
