Delivery information for new subscriptions

For new orders please allow up to 6 weeks for delivery of your first issue. 

For subsequent issues delivery is usually made within 14 days of despatch, although please allow up to 21 days for deliveries to India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh & Brazil.

To ensure prompt delivery of print issues for the duration of your subscription mailing labels are generated two weeks in advance of the publication date. Subscription start dates will generally align with the earliest issue that adheres to the advance label printing after your order has been placed. For weekly publications such as Nature, this is likely to mean the first issue you receive is not most recently published journal to the date of your order.

If you require further assistance about your order, please contact our Customer Service team at If you would rather call your local Customer Service team, their phone numbers are available here.

To help us to protect your information please do not send credit card details with your orders.
