About Our Pricing Policy

Format dependent pricing

Most of our journals are available in the following two subscription options:

1. Online only 100% of the list price
2. Print and online 115% of the list price

Customers currently receiving the online only / print plus online are renewed accordingly, but customers can migrate to another subscrition option upon request.

Free access to back-files with current subscription – perpetual access rights

With a live subscription all online back issues of a particular journal or journal collection, going back to the first online issue, are included in the subscription, whether or not they had been previously purchased.

If subscriptions are maintained, then current subscribers gain free access to previously unsubscribed material. Once a subscription is cancelled customers retain perpetual access to all online content that they have specifically subscribed to, but not to the back-files.
