If you do not see the ‘Request Inspection Copy’ tab on the right hand side of the page, then the title is not available for inspection. If you believe that the unavailable book is highly likely to be adopted for your course, you can complete the form below and we will review your request.

Is my inspection copy completely free of charge?

Yes. As a small independent company we can only afford to continue to be generous with our inspection copy policy if you, as a lecturer and academic, help us as much as you can. We would therefore be grateful if you could try to reply to our email asking for feedback which we will send you in a month’s time.
 
If you like the book, please could you also consider:

• making sure you add it to your reading list;
• showing it to your students;
• asking your librarian to buy in some copies;
• posting a review on Amazon (or encouraging your students to) – it really helps sales! 


How do I submit my feedback?

We will send you an email in around a month's time and you just need to reply to the email. If you want to send in feedback earlier you can send it to admin@criticalpublishing.com.
 

Where can I find the supporting resources for my title?

Free sample chapters for almost all of our books are located on the book's product page on the left hand side. You can find the product page by entering the ISBN or title into the search bar. Some of our books also come with supplementary resources and they can be found either on the product page or under the Free Resources tab towards the top of the Home Page.
 

My inspection copy hasn’t arrived!

If you have ordered an inspection copy of a book that hasn’t yet published, you will usually receive your copy within 14 days of the publication date. If it hasn't arrived, please check your university’s general mailroom, nearby pigeon holes and colleague's desks before contacting us. You would be amazed how many books turn up that way! If you are unable to locate your parcel after 14 business days please contact admin@criticalpublishing.com
