Just the other day I wrote to Sheffield Academic Press about the fact that
the website does not seem to indicate any books with discounts. I received
the following response and explanation:

Dear Dr Ciampa

I'm sorry that you were unable to identify titles with a scholars discount
available. I have informed the company which manages our web site and they
are attempting to sort this problem out. As a general rule it is Hardback
Humanities titles (includes Theology and Biblical Studies) where no
paperback alternative is available. If you wish to order a title that you
think may fit these criteria then please mention this along with your order.
If no discount is available you will be contacted and asked if you still
wish to purchase at full price.

Each book on the web site does display whether or not the book is paperback,
hardback or both.

If you have further enquiries then please get in touch.

Best regards

Andy Pritchard
