AVMA Journals - Subscription Terms and Policies

All subscriptions to AVMA publications are for a twelve (12) month period. All subscription orders will begin with the next available issue. If preceding issues are missed, they may be purchased at the single issue price.

All subscribers receive the print version of the journal, and are granted access to the complete online archive of that journal for as long as the subscription is maintained. At this time, there is NO online-only access to publications. Upon request, the AVMA will grant institutions the right to provide access to the online archives of the AVMA journals to authorized users via a secure network, provided the institution maintains a current subscription and abides by specified terms and conditions. Please contact AVMA Librarian, Diane A. Fagen for more information.

Back issues may be purchased individually at single-issue rates, based on availability. Standing orders will not be accepted. No sample copies will be issued. Foreign subscriptions will be sent via surface mail.
