Media & Publicity

We are always happy to hear from media outlets who wish to publish a review of one of our books or interview one of our authors. Please read our review copy policy prior to requesting a book for review.  

Change in review copy policy due to COVID-19

Due to the measures being taken to stop further spreading of the Coronavirus, many university buildings and businesses have closed. In line with other publishers, IVP will move away from sending physical review copies and will only be sending digital copies to reviewers for the foreseeable future. If a physical copy is required please contact one of our publicists.

To request a digital review copy, please fill out the publicity request form.

If you are a professor considering a textbook for adoption, or to request a desk copy, please visit this page.

Review copies are sent out at the discretion of IVP under the following conditions:

  • Print and ebook review copies of our publications are available to the print, electronic, and broadcast media who intend to review or discuss our book in the media 
  • A PDF copy of the review or link is sent to upon publication
  • We can only issue review copies to print outlets in response to a request from a book reviews or journal editor
  • Bloggers and online writers must regularly post on their blog or website as we are not currently approving requests from infrequent bloggers
