Examination and Desk Copy Requests

Academics teaching relevant courses may request examination copies of titles to consider for text adoption. Examination copies can be requested through the product page of any of our texts.  We ask that you limit your examination copy requests to three or fewer at a time; if you are not confident that you will adopt a book, please help us keep costs down by requesting an electronic examination copy (see below), or by purchasing a bound copy. If in the future you do decide to assign as a course text a book you have previously purchased, Broadview Press will be happy to refund your money.

Please be aware that the default option is for an electronic examination copy. Electronic exam copies are sent in PDF format and require no registration or log-in. If, after having reviewed an electronic copy, you believe there’s a good chance you’ll adopt the book for one of your courses, please let us know and we will immediately send a bound desk copy.

As an independent publisher with limited resources, we’d greatly appreciate it if you could double-check that all copies are needed before submitting a request. (Our understanding is that departmental administrators sometimes request unnecessary desk copies for instructors who have already received bound examination copies.) If you can limit requests to what is truly needed, we will be very grateful — it really will help us keep down the price of books for students.

We ship to all North American locations from our Peterborough, Ontario, warehouse. Shipping times vary depending on your location; it will take between 2-12 business days.

Examination copies are available through this site for Canadian and American instructors only. All international instructors should contact Eurospan (in the UK and continental Europe, Africa, Asia, Central and South America); or Footprint Books (Australia and New Zealand).
