Academics teaching relevant courses may request examination copies of titles to consider for text adoption. 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 the book, please help us keep costs down by ordering it instead. If in the future you do decide to assign as a course text a book you have previously ordered personally, Broadview Press will be happy to refund your money.
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).
Please be aware that the default option below is for an electronic examination copy. This exam copy can reach you almost immediately; if you decide after having had a look that there’s a good possibility of choosing the book for one of your courses, please let us know and we will immediately follow up by sending a bound book examination copy.
As an independent publisher with limited resources, we greatly appreciate your use of discretion when requesting desk copies of books that you have adopted for course use. If you can limit requests to what is truly needed, we will be very grateful – it really will help us keep down the cost of books for students.
When asking for desk copies, we’d appreciate it if you could double-check that all copies are necessary. (Our understanding is that departmental administrators may sometimes request desk copies for an academic who has already received a complimentary examination copy of the relevant title)
