Companion sites and teaching resources

Many of our titles have extra resources in the form of companion sites, downloads or Launchpad to help you get the most of your textbook and engage with your students on a deeper level.

What is a companion site and how do I access it?

Companion sites are free websites that provide additional materials and extension activities. They help lecturers use the text in their teaching and support students in practicing and reinforcing their learning independently. Some companion sites require confirmation of textbook adoption before we can provide access.

Although we review each case on an individual basis, we might not be able to fulfill your request if you live outside of these countries. If you can't find your country in the list, we might need to ask for proof of adoption.


To request access:

  1. On the book page, click on 'VIEW companion website', just under the book jacket image. If this button is not available, the book may not have a companion site.
  2. Select the teaching resources from the left hand side menu.
  3. Browse, login or register as prompted.

Some companion sites require authorisation by the Palgrave Higher Education team. In this case, please fill out the access request form at step 3 above, and we'll respond to you within 3 days. Access is not granted automatically.

I can't log into the companion site

If you have previously been granted access but can't login now, please check that you are logging in with the same email address you used when you requested access. If you have a new email address, access may not have been applied to the new account.

If you have recently submitted your request but haven't heard from us yet, we may still be reviewing your request. We consider and respond to every request within 3 working days.

If you're still having trouble, please contact us.

I'm not a lecturer or a student - can I access companion sites?
