There are three major indicators that can help you determine whether your DSM-5 copy is an authentic copy or a counterfeit: point of purchase, price, and quality.
Copies purchased directly from the American Psychiatric Publishing through our website www.appi.org, our booths at meetings, or via our catalog, are guaranteed to be authentic copies. American Psychiatric Publication books are also available through retailers and distributors. If you have purchased from an unauthorized seller at a very low cost, you might want to examine the quality of the book. Signs that your copy might be a counterfeit book include: missing pages, a different cover color, bad binding, misspellings, ink smears, incorrect headings, misaligned type setting, or low quality paper.
Unfortunately, we are not able to provide a replacement or issue a refund for copies not purchased directly through us. If you would like a request a refund or an exchange, please contact your point of purchase directly. We strongly encourage you to contact the online marketplace (such as Amazon, EBay, etc.) to report unauthorized sellers of counterfeit books. In addition, you might want to leave a review on the seller’s profile, indicating that the particular seller has sent you a counterfeit copy. You can also submit a counterfeit complaint to us by sending a copy of your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. We are unable to issue a replacement copy or a refund, but we will compile all complaints received and notify the online marketplace about counterfeit books.
