Digital Subscriptions

How renewals take place within your services?

We automatically take action to renew every subscription that has not been cancelled on schedule by sending you a request for each single journal 4 months before the subscription is due to expire. If you wish to cancel an existing subscription you need to give written notice at least 3 months before the expiry date of the subscription.

Do you supply back issues?

Back issues and back volumes are available for most titles at the current subscription rates. Please contact us for availability.

Can I cancel a subscription?

All orders are fully cancelable as long as the cancel request is received within 48 hours of the time the order is placed. After that, in most cases cancellations will not be accepted.

When can I order for a yearly subscription?

Orders can be placed at any time during the year for any designated subscription year.

Are your subscription prices fixed?

All prices are subject to change without notice. However, once an order is placed, We will not raise its price for the duration of the subscription year.

Are e-journals exact matches of their print counterparts?

Not always. If the page image was scanned into the database, the match may be exact. Many electronic journals exclude non-article items, such as letters to the editor or advertisements.

By subscribing to e-journals, what will we get access to?

By subscribing at our digital rate you will get electronic access only to the issues within your current and all previous orders. For example, for orders placed for 2008 issues, access will be available to the content in 2008. When renewed for 2009, access will be available to 2008 and 2009. In other words, for your subscription fee, you would be buying the data for the journal for the year in question, and will have permanent access to that material. You would not have to pay another fee to access it as back issues, once the year is done. You would of course have to pay a subscription price for a new year’s subscription.

Can I print or download articles?

Absolutely; You can download and print articles with no limitations, however please note that reproducing articles whether in digital or print format for distribution and sales puporses are srtictly prohibited.

Articles are available in PDF (using Adobe Acrobat or other freely available plug-ins). Formatting, images, fonts and layout are reproduced accurately, providing a high-quality replica of the printed page that can be viewed on-screen or downloaded at your convenience.

How many simultaneous viewers can access e-journals?

Regarding the number of simultaneous users that can be online and get access to e-journals, we can make it virtually unlimited; however, we begin from 3 concurrent users and increase it on your request and based on a fair usage.
