Inspection Copies

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.

How to order

To request an inspection copy, find the book you want in our online catalogue and click on the Request an Inspection Copy button.

Look out for this button:

This will open up an Inspection Copy Request Form for you to complete. We will ask you to enter some basic details about your course, and to provide your institutional address.

Please also note that:

  • inspection copies are limited to single copies, and you can only request one book per request
  • usually, an e-book 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
  • depending on your geographical location we may pass your request on to a local OUP branch or agent
  • we may be unable to deliver specific books to certain countries owing to market restrictions

*If you would like to help with selecting appropriate titles for inspection, please contact your local campus representative directly.  They will be happy to discuss your course needs in more detail.
