Subscription Terms & Policies


  • All institutional print subscriptions start on a volume-year basis. Most volume years are calendar-year based. Those journals published on an academic-year basis are available either on the volume year or calendar year.
  • All institutional electronic subscriptions run from January 1 to December 31 and provide access to all issues of the journal during that period.  Electronic subscriptions do not provide perpetual access to the issues of a given volume.  For additional information regarding electronic subscriptions please review our Single Title Terms.
  • Institutional rates apply to any subscriptions ordered or paid for by libraries, schools, academic departments, government agencies, and businesses.
  • No separate indexes for the annual volumes are published. Indexes, if any, are found in the last issue of the volume.
  • Sample issues of all our journals are available online at Project MUSE:
  • Please allow 4–6 weeks for shipment of domestic orders and 6–10 weeks for international orders.

Cancellations & Refunds

  • We accept cancellations; refunds for non-mailed print issues will be prorated. Please allow 6–8 weeks to receive your refund. There are no refunds on electronic orders.

Claiming a Missing Issue

  • If claims are received within 3 months of publication date, issues lost in the mail or damaged will be replaced one time, free of charge. In all other cases, charges for replacement issues will be prorated.
  • Before making a claim, please check our Publication Schedule Status, which provides actual and projected mail dates for the current volume of all Hopkins Press titles. (Note that we have status reports but not projected publication dates for titles we distribute for other publishers.)
  • To claim a missing issue, email Include your institution’s name, address, the issue in question (journal title, volume, and issue number), and your preferred contact information.
  • Hopkins Press attempts to contact subscribers when an issue is returned due to an undeliverable address, but our obligation to fulfill the subscription ends once 6 months have passed and we still do not have current information.
  • The delivery of print subscriptions has improved but continues to face minor local delays.  Delivery in North America has been delayed by personnel shortages, supply chain delays, and various local weather conditions. Delivery to US locations can take up to 5-7 weeks; delivery to Canada and Mexico, can take up to 6-8 weeks.

    Delivery outside of North America has been delayed by personnel shortages at post offices and customs offices, supply chain delays, various local weather conditions, and strikes in industries responsible for delivery.  Delivery outside of North America can take up to 9-12 weeks.  
  • Because of these circumstances, we will be extending our claims period but will not be able to replace missing journals until enough time has passed for delivery. Please note that it will also take several months for replacement issues to arrive once they are shipped.
