Starting with 2022, mindful of the hardships still faced by many institutions,
MSP has implemented tiered pricing for its journal subscriptions.
Institutions who are not in
group R1 (institutions of very high research activity) or who have a
rank below 500 will be offered a lower price.
Please make checks payable to “Mathematical Sciences Publishers.”
If you wish to pay by wire payments or ACH transfers, instructions will be sent to you by email after we receive your form and signed License Agreements.
Unfortunately, we cannot currently process credit-card payments.
Electronic access to past issues of a journal is included with every subscription to that journal, as long as a subscription is maintained.
Perpetual access is available through the
Global LOCKSS Network.
Subscribers are asked to sign MSP’s
Electronic Journal License Agreement
upon initiating their subscription.
After it is initially signed,
the EJLA will remain in effect as long as subscription fees are paid for at least one journal, unless terminated in the manner provided in the EJLA.
In other words, a subscriber may need to sign the EJLA only once,
as long as a subscription is maintained from year to year.
We do not offer print-only subscriptions, only electronic and electronic+print. Subscriptions are offered for the calendar year only. Electronic access allowed based on submitted IP-address range. Separate campuses of an institution that are not within the same city or geographically close must be covered by separate subscriptions, or might be eligible for consortium pricing, at MSP’s discretion.
All articles published by MSP become free to access and read after five years past publication
(meaning on the fifth January 1st after the publication date).
is immediately free to read, without any author charges.
