Customer Service Information


Claims for non-receipt of a printed issue must be made within 3 months of publication date.

Online access problems

If online access has been lost for current or previous paid years of service, please contact Sales and Customer Services Team and the problem will be fixed as soon as possible.


Subscriptions can’t be cancelled in their current year of service. We do not offer any refunds once a subscription has been paid on our system.

Delivery address

Subscription agents should supply the name, postal address and email address of the subscriber, even when delivery is through a consolidation address. To ensure online access, please supply the subscriber’s Internet Protocol (IP) addresses where applicable.


To ensure continuity of despatch of journals each year, we strongly encourage payment by 1st December. Agents are responsible for the continuity of orders placed through them.

Terms of online access

Institutional prices for online subscriptions allow online access by authorized users only as laid out in your license agreement. Full terms and conditions of usage are available on the relevant journal website. A subscription for a particular year gives access to all content from January to December, regardless of the month in which the subscription was ordered. If a subscription lapses or is cancelled at the end of its term, the customer retains perpetual access to content from the paid years of their subscription.

Please contact our Sales Department for details. Institutional prices are on a tier basis dependent on FTE.
