Journals for agents

Cambridge is pleased to work with subscription agents in every country, whether those agents are multinational or specialised local companies. We now offer full content access to all Cambridge journals on Cambridge Core, including access to back issues.

There are a number of different purchasing options available on Cambridge Core to suit agents' needs.

Subscription sales

Subscriptions are available to most Cambridge journals in Print + Online, Print Only and Online Only formats, although an increasing number of journals are only available online. The price list shows rates for print plus online subscriptions and electronic-only subscriptions.

Please note that customers receiving either the print plus online subscriptions or electronic-only subscriptions benefit from free access to some back volumes online. The range depends on which journal – this information can be found on the price list.

Site licence, multi-site licence and consortia sales

To buy packages of online Cambridge journals at discounted prices, or for licences to access your chosen journals online from multiple sites, please contact your sales representative for a tailored quotation, or use one of the email addresses below.

We welcome enquiries from academic institutions as well as from commercial organisations. Please note that Consortia and Site Licence pricing will not result in you paying less for your existing subscriptions, but can add a great deal of invaluable content for a modest additional cost.

Rest of World:


Prices are effective for current year volumes, unless otherwise specified, and are subject to change without notice. Subscriptions are available for 'bundled' and online only and print only. Please note that reduced rate subscriptions do not give online access unless specified.
