|Q. 1||I had subscribed for Print & Online versions of a journal in March '12. Till January 2013 the 2012 year's complete print issues were not sent to me. Why has my online access been blocked in this case?|
|Ans.||Print versions are volume based where as online versions are calendar year based. This means, print versions get dispatched by the publisher and online versions are available through us for the period January - December of that particular year. To enjoy constant access, you need to get the subscription renewed online with us.|
|Q. 2||What is meant by Online Subscription Policy?|
|Ans.||This is a time bound policy wherein you are given access to publications from January to December i.e. for one calendar year only. You can access whatever is published within this time frame. Current Year Subscription means the Subscribed year plus back files from 2005 onwords, (given free of cost, if available).|
|Q. 3||What are the different ways to access past years' files i.e. of years apart from current year?|
|Ans.||There are three ways of accessing past years' files, as per our policy:|
Method 1- Current Subscription Under which you can access back files from 2005 onwards, if available.
Method 2- Archives Under which you can access 10 years files, starting from 2004 to 1995. However, as per our policy, Archive gets activated only when it has minimum 5 years content. Until then, till the beginning of 5th year, the content is shown as a part of current subscription only. For further details please click here.
Method 3- Deep Archives under which you can access files available from 1994. For further details, click here.
Archives and Deep Archives are based on perpetual accessibility subject to annual activation i.e. you pay only once in your lifetime to subscribe Archives / Deep Archives and pay a nominal activation cost to get updated Archives/Deep Archives. Please check our Subscription Policy for more details.
|Q. 4||Till last year, I was able to view the contents beyond 2005. This year, suddenly my access is restricted to 2005 only.|
|Ans.||You were viewing current year + back files from 2005 only by default. Under current subscription, one can access contents from 2005 only, however, the archives were less than 5 years old, the same were shown under current subscription only, click here.|
|Q. 5||Why do I need to pay Annual Activation Charges for archives when they are based on "perpetual access policy"?|
|Ans.||This is because of the following reasons:
- Archives are offered for a period of 10 years. As a new year gets added, the oldest year is automatically deleted from the offer list.
- If you pay in the 5th year, you get access for 10 + 4* years.
- The maximum that you have to pay is for 10 years only.
|Q. 6||What is the right time to subscribe to Archives / Deep Archives?|
|Ans.||The best time to subscribe to an archive / deep archive is as soon as it gets activated. This is because, in case of an archive, you will get access for 10 + 4* default years by simply paying for 10, instantly.|
|Q. 7||I want to sample the content to get a basic idea. How is that possible?|
|Ans.||There are 2 simple ways to that:
- We offer sample copies. Please check the home page of the respective journal you are interested in.
- For institutes, we offer a month Trial Access facility - a single session per institute - to show how IP based access works. The facility is available on the journal home page.
|Q. 8||I had placed an order with IndianJournals.com but I am receiving supplies from various societies? Is something wrong in the processing?|
I had placed an order with a society but seem to be getting supplies from IndianJournals.com?
|Ans.||There is no cause for confusion. IndianJournals.com co-publishes journals in association with societies and in such cases IndianJournals.com is responsible for printing and dispatch, irrespective of who (society or IndianJournals.com) receives the payment.|
In cases where the respective society/publisher is responsible for printing and dispatch, the publication will be dispatched to you by them, irrespective of the fact who (society or IndianJournals.com) receives the payment.
|Q. 9||How can I keep a track of new issues added to publications I have subscribed to?|
|Ans.||Please opt for our TOC Alerts and you will be kept updated about the new releases. The link for the same is available on the home page of each publication.|

|Ans.||Yes, there is! A Users' Track facility is available. Log-in into the users' section on the home page of IndianJournals.com.|
|Q. 11||I am not receiving the asked-for print copies regularly/at all. But your team confirms they have been dispatched.|
|Ans.||TOC Alerts will keep you informed about new issues. Print copies should reach you within 10-15 days of sending alert. If that is not happening, the following could solve the problem:
- Please check your address in the User's section and cross check the same with our team.
- Recommend a courier company/registered post.
- Please make sure you send the acknowledgement after receipt of order. This will help us check the credibility of the dispatch mode used by us.
|Q. 12||Why do you recommend a Subject Collection as advantageous?|
|Ans.||A subject collection is a bundle of subject-specific publications on a given date. The advantages of subscribing to a subject collection are:
- These are offered at discounted prices.
- Any publication uploaded to the same subject category, during the given subscription period, can be accessed without paying any additional charges.
|Q. 13||What does Single User Access or IP Access mean?|
|Ans.||Single User Access means an exclusive username will be allotted to you, along with a password which you can change. This username is specifically for one person only. Multiple logins from the same name lead to the user being blocked.|
IP based Access happens within a geographical range of an institute and is free of passwords. Only one username is allotted in this case too.
|Q. 14||What if I want Multi-User Access or Site Licensing?|
|Ans.||Please contact our team for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org|
