Frequently Asked Questions about Institutional Subscriptions
Statistics (4/09/08)
Perpetual Access (24/9/08) A subscription is required for access to content published in the most recent 12 months. All content is made free to everyone 12 months after publication. If a subscription is cancelled access to subscribed content is temporarily suspended, ie, until the content is gradually made free over the next 12 months. This 12-month rolling access policy is what most scholarly publishers use.
