Can we get more than one Hard Copy Subscription?
Yes. We will invoice you at 50% of your usual rate for each additional hard copy.

 

Why is the Electronic Subscription more expensive?
The Electronic Subscription is more expensive because it provides the following benefits over the Hard Copy Subscription:

  • Subscribers receive the Electronic version approximately one week before the Hard Copy version (longer in the case of international subscriptions)
  • The Electronic version is delivered as a PDF document by email – this document can be quickly and easily shared with your colleagues by forwarding the email to them . However, it must not be sent to anyone outside of your organisation.
  • The Electronic version can be uploaded to your intranet or other internal database. It must not be made available outside of your organisation.


    Can we change the type of subscription after the subscription has started?
    Yes. You can convert your existing Hard Copy Subscription to an Electronic or Electronic plus Hard Copy Subscription at any time. We will issue an invoice for the balance due on a pro rata basis.
