Review copies

You are an editor or a journalist, and you would like to publish a book review? We offer all book reviewers and journalists free review copies of books from our German and English imprints  to write a book review. Our preferred way to provide you with a review copy is the electronic version of the book.

As a pioneer in digital publishing, Springer Nature increasingly distributes its content in electronic formats. Regularly assessing how our resources are produced and used is an important part of our commitment to reduce Springer Nature’s impact on the environment. Providing an eBook as review copy is one of the ways we are reducing our reliance on print, and therefore the supply chain for paper. You can find out more about these commitments in our annual Responsible Business Report.

If you would like to order a review copy or have detailed questions, please contact the review team.

By the way: We have changed our previous service for digital review copies and can no longer offer our online reading service for technical reasons. If you still have access to books that have already been activated, this will continue until the full 6-month access period expires. You can do this as usual via your account or use the confirmation email that you received from us to activate the title.
