Step 1:

  • Next, select 'Educator'.

Step 2:

  • Fill out the following fields with the relevant information, including your institution, role, and discipline. If you do not see your institution, click 'Don't see your school?' and fill out the additional details. Then, click 'Register'.

Step 3:

  • After you have completed your registration, you will be sent an 'email verification link' and we can begin the educator approval process. We do need to verify the educator status of each request in an effort to keep content secure, so the account will not be approved for educator access immediately.

Step 4:

  • Once your account has been approved for educator access, you will have the ability to request digital review copies on your account and preview our supplement files.

Q: How long does it take to get approved as an educator?

โ€‹A: It could take up to a couple of business days to get approved, as we must verify the educator status for each account. If you have questions or need to speed up the process, you may reach out to us at with a link to your faculty bio or directory entry. Alternatively, you can have your department head email us to confirm your educator status.

Q: Can I still access my account while I wait for approval?

A: Yes, but you would not be able to 'Request a Review Copy' or 'Adopt' a book until it has been approved.
