RCPsych Publications - Inspection Copies


The Royal College of Psychiatrists offers an inspection copy service for our publications. These titles are available to lecturers who wish to consider adopting them for a course.

If the title is recommended for purchase on a course, it may be kept.  If not, it should be paid for or returned to us in re-saleable condition within 60 days (2 months).  If we have not heard from you after this time, we may send you an invoice for the book(s). 

We will only send inspection copies out to a lecturer’s institution/workplace postal address and a valid work email must be provided.  A maximum of 3 titles can be requested at any one time, a maximum of 7 in total.

Feedback: For each title the lecturer is asked to fill out a short questionnaire with a few details of the institution and the course the title has been accepted for.  If the title is not to be recommended, we ask that the lecturer provide some feedback as to why it was not suitable.

To request inspection copies: Please contact us directly in writing, by phone, fax or email to:
