Invoicing and Dispatch

The postage and handling charge for print or combined print/online subscriptions is indicated separately.
Institutions and private persons with a subscription account directly with Karger Publishers will receive separate invoices for the different types of subscription.

Subscription Period

Print subscriptions run a full calendar year and may cover more than one volume. New subscriptions placed during the year will begin with the delivery of all published issues already in that subscription year.
An online subscription allows access only to issues published in the subscription year. New online subscribers receive instructions and their user ID/password together with the written confirmation of their order. For questions and problems our help desk can also be reached directly under info@karger.com.

Authorized Access

For personal subscribers access is regulated via user ID/password, for those at institutes and libraries additionally via IP address (we accept more than one IP address per subscriber).
In order to facilitate the administration of online subscriptions, we offer libraries with a substantial number of Karger subscriptions the option of access regulation via IP address alone, provided there is no IP overlap or cross-accessing with other institutions. If you are interested, please contact us under service@karger.com.
