IGI Global Course Adoption

IGI Global publications provide valuable, innovative, and trending content to undergraduate and graduate courses and are essential supplements for professors looking to enhance their class with the latest emerging research. Instructors from all over the world are invited to participate in IGI Global’s Course Adoption program, which includes a free 7-day electronic examination of the interested text. Please find below a list of included and excluded publication formats:

Chapters from excluded publication formats may be purchased individually through the InfoSci®-OnDemand platform.

How to Adopt a Book

Step 1: Request a Free Examination Copy

Professors considering an IGI Global title for adoption into their class may request a complimentary 7-day full-text electronic examination copy. To qualify for the complimentary exam copy, professors must fill out the form located below or contact the Marketing Department directly at marketing@igi-global.com with your full name, affiliation, the title of interest, publication title, course name, and estimated number of students that will be enrolled in the course.

Step 2: Approval and Electronic Access

Once your request has been received by IGI Global's Marketing Department, they will open complimentary electronic access to the publication for seven (7) days, and once the access expires, if the instructor decides they would like to adopt the publication into their course, assist with setting up a specialized coupon code or if it is a domestic institution, work with the bookstore.

For instructors who decide not to adopt the book into their course and would like further assistance finding a title better suited to their class, please feel free to contact the Marketing Team at marketing@igi-global.com.

Step 3: Ordering Information and Discounts

Complimentary Desk Copy for Instructors: IGI Global will track the number of titles purchased for the course and once ten (10) copies have been sold, the instructor will be provided with one desk copy at no additional cost. (Note: The complimentary desk copy is only available the first year the title is adopted).

Domestic & International: Upon contacting the Marketing Department, instructors will receive a unique coupon code which will allow their students to take up to 40% off the price of the title when they order the print or electronic format of the publication through the IGI Global's IGI Global Online Bookstore. Once the coupon code is created, they may follow these simple purchasing instructions:

  • Visit IGI Global's Online Bookstore at: http://www.igi-global.com/.
  • Search the title of the publication and choose either print or electronic format.
  • Add the title to the shopping cart and begin the steps to complete the purchase.
  • Complete Step 1 of the checkout process.
  • During Step 2 there will be a box in the upper right-hand corner labeled “Coupons”. Enter the unique code provided by the instructor and click “Add+”. The discount will be added to the total found below.
  • Complete purchase.

Domestic Only: Domestic (U.S. and Canada) professors may also opt to order the titles through their university bookstore. If this option is selected, the instructor will need to provide their marketing team member with the bookstore’s contact information. The bookstore will order directly from IGI Global and the students will purchase the print copy through the university bookstore.

Students wishing to receive the electronic version of the title may still order directly through IGI Global’s Online Bookstore and receive access instructions. For further assistance, please contact Customer Service at cust@igi-global.com.
