Subscription FAQ

How do I subscribe?

We offer a personal subscription for individuals and another one for organisations. Payment is taken via Paypal accessed above. We use the email and postal address supplied as part of the transaction to send out your copy of JCPCP. If you want to use a different postal address or email, then please let us know.

Why are there two types of subscription?

The more expensive institutional subscription is designed primarily for universities who want access to JCPCP for their staff and students.

How does an individual subscription work?

When you subscribe, you receive the latest print edition of JCPCP in the post and a digital copy in pdf format via email. You also get the next three editions as they become available (both hard and digital copy), so your subscription entitles you to four editions of JCPCP in total. Please note, if you are a trainee psychologist your subscription will run for five Editions in total due to the free for trainees Autumn 2020 issue. Just let us know by email when you subscribe.

How does an organisational subscription work?

It works approximately the same as an individual subscription, but payment will be for the current year and access to JCPCP will be allowed across the organisation. We would urge organisations to contact us before purchasing a subscription.

Do I get anything else as part of my subscription?

Yes - access to full-text versions of papers published from 2016 onwards. This service is only open to individual subscribers. Currently, it works by individuals requesting specific papers directly from us via email at:

What about if I am an organisation?

Please contact us for more information about the back-issue service as it will operate slightly differently than it does for individuals.

Why can't I download papers from 2016 and later instantly from your website, as opposed to requesting them?

There are pros and cons to restricted access web content. It is costly to implement well and we are a micro publisher currently running at a significant loss. We also want the system to be user friendly and secure, which further raises the cost of implementation. However, if we reach a certain level of subscribers, then we will explore this option.

What happens to my contact details and will I receive any marketing from you after I subscribe?

No. We keep the contact details provided on your Paypal receipt securely. We only use them to send out your print and digital copy of JCPCP and will delete them once your subscription ends.

How do I renew a subscription?

As an individual, you will need to purchase one again at the end of your current subscription period. Organisations will need to renew each year.

How do I get access to past issues?

You will need to subscribe in order to access papers from 2016 onwards. Earlier years are free to access here.

Can I get a print copy of the latest issue?

Yes. JCPCP is printed each quarter at Lemonade Press and sent out to subscribers.

Can I get a print copy of a back issue?

Perhaps. We have paper copies of many back issues so please ask.

Why is JCPCP not digital only?

One of the problems with being fully digital is future compatibility due to continually evolving software. Another is that paper can take years to rot and is just nicer to read than a screen.

What about the environment?

The paper version of JCPCP is recyclable and made from sustainable material, as is the packaging.

Why doesn't JCPCP have a DOI number?

DOI's cost money and are primarily about archiving and providing a permanent digital home for a paper. Touch wood - this website will be permanent and one of its functions is to act as an archive for JCPCP. However, this does not completely remove the need for a DOI, so it is something we will be exploring in future.

But I have more questions!
