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.
For all information about changes to our list of journals, including new launch titles, new take-ons, and journals changing to Open Access, as well as additional payment instructions and tax details, please visit our Journals Publishing Updates page here.
There are a number of different purchasing options available on Cambridge Core to suit agents' needs.
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.
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.
Cambridge University Press operates tiered pricing for two of its journal subscriptions, Journal of British Studies and Infection Control & Hospital Epidemiology. Click here to download our tier descriptions.

Claims for issues not received should be made by the earlier of : (1) six months from the date of publication; or (2) receipt of the next issue. Please note that, while every effort is made to maintain the advertised publication schedule, it may sometimes not be possible to despatch an issue in the month for which it had been advertised. No refunds of subscriptions will be made after the first issue of the year has been dispatched. In the event an issue has been made 'out of print' we will of course offer to make that publication available to the user through Cambridge Journals Online.
Change of Address
Please give four weeks advance notice whenever possible, and be sure to include the title of the journal, and the complete old mailing address, as well as the new address. Please provide any reference numbers.
