Subscriptions


We offer four different types of subscription services:

Calendar Year, Any Time Start (ATS), Charge By Release (CBR) and Standing order (SO).

Calendar Year subscriptions

A calendar year subscription is one that runs from January to December.

If you purchase a calendar year subscription mid-way through the year, it will still run until December that year but you will receive all back issues / releases published so far that year:

Journals:      Any back issues published prior to your purchase will be sent to you immediately.

Looseleafs:   All prior releases will already be included in the mainwork at the time of purchase.

You will continue to receive any further updates that are published between the date of purchase and the end of December of that year.

Any Time Start (ATS) subscriptions

An Any Time Start subscription is one that runs for a year from the date of purchase.

Charge By Release (CBR) subscriptions

Because some mainworks are not updated regularly, they are unsuited to traditional subscriptions and are sold on a Charge By Release basis.  When you buy the mainwork you will be registered to receive all future updates and you will be charged for each release individually, as and when you are sent them.

Any releases published within 60 days of your original mainwork purchase will be provided free of charge.

Charge By Release subscriptions continue until you terminate the service.

Standing Order

The advantage of a Standing Order is that as well as automatically receiving updating supplements to your product, you can also opt to receive all new editions plus updates to those new editions and if you do this you will qualify for a discount.

There is no annual charge for a Standing Order, you will be charged for each edition or supplement individually, as and when you are sent them.

Standing Orders continue until you terminate the service.

Standing Order Discounts

The following discounts will be applied to the price of an edition or supplement as advertised on our website.  (Please note, that the discount will not be applied against delivery charges.)

1. Supplemented mainwork:

If you place a standing order for future supplements to the current edition, you will receive a 5% discount on those future supplements.

If you order the current edition and place a standing order for future supplements to the current edition, plus all future editions and supplements, you will receive a 10% discount on all items.

2. Supplement only:

If you buy the current supplement and place a standing order for all future supplements to the current edition, you will receive a 5% discount on all items.

3. Non-supplemented mainwork

If you buy the current edition and place a standing order for all future editions, you will receive a 10% discount on all items.

For an additional fee, we can supply you with a hardbound and indexed volume containing all issues of a journal during a subscription year – and you don’t have to return your original issues. The Bound Volume Service is excellent value for money and an easy way to avoid misplacing individual issues.

Binders are also available for some periodicals for a small additional cost, so that you can file and protect individual issues.

You can cancel your subscription at any time but you will not be entitled to a refund.

If you purchase a looseleaf or CD calendar year subscription at any time before October, you will be required to renew it at the end of the year in order to keep the subscription active for the following year. However, if you purchase after the 1st of October then your subscription will run until the 31st of December of the following year. Please note: this is only applicable to looseleaf and CD calendar year subscriptions and you will be charged the following year’s mainwork price.

All new subscriptions are subject to a continuous subscription agreement.  This means that your subscriptions will automatically renew in future years, unless you tell us otherwise.

Before each renewal period we will send you an annual subscription statement to enable you to review your subscriptions.  You must tell us about any changes within 30 days of the subscription statement date after which you will be invoiced and your subscription(s) will continue for a further year.

If you have indicated that you do not wish to receive your subscription(s) on a continuous basis, we will send you renewal notices and reminders, these are usually sent 3 months before the expiry date.  In order to renew your subscription you will need to contact us before your current subscription expires to avoid interruption to your service.
