In the event of a book being ‘Out of Print’, Earthprint will automatically supply the new edition as a replacement. If a book is ‘Out of Print’ and no new edition is available, it is no longer possible for Earthprint to stock or order the publication.

We will normally supply you with the most recent available edition of your chosen book(s). Sometimes this will mean that you receive a different edition from the one referred to in your subject guide for your course. Universities advise that generally it is helpful to study with the most recent edition of a core textbook. You can use the detailed chapter and section headings in the book plus the index to identify relevant readings, and you should also check your VLE (course intranet) regularly for updated guidance on readings.

If you have problems identifying relevant material in the edition of the textbook that you have received, please raise a query using Programme leader.
