Journal Subscriptions

For Institutions: 

Print + Electronic subscriptions are not available for Purdue University Press journals. However, online-only and print-only options are available for three of our journals, Shofar, Education & Culture, and Philip Roth Studies.

Online-only: Institutions wishing to receive online subscriptions to Education and Culture, Shofar, or Philip Roth Studies can subscribe through Project Muse or (from 2015) JSTOR Current Scholarship. These journals are also available in aggregated collections from Project Muse, JSTOR, EBSCO and H. W. Wilson.

The Jewish Role in American Life and Studies in Jewish Civilization are annual publications. Each annual has a theme and is published as a book. Electronic versions of these are available on a volume-by-volume basis through the Purdue University Press website (browse “series”). New volumes are available through Project Muse, JSTOR, as well as Ebrary and EBSCO Books collections.

Print-only: For print-only subscriptions to any of our journals, please call Bookmasters (North America: 1(800) 247-6553; International: 1(419) 281-5100).  

Open Access journals are freely available online. With the exception of Global Business Languages, these journals are online-only. There are two collections: Purdue University Press Open Access journals are established publications which are rigorously peer-reviewed and edited, while Purdue Scholarly Publishing Services Open Access journals are newer or more experimental in nature.

Journals with Academic Year schedules publish their first issues around October. Journals with Calendar Year schedules publish their first issue around January. Prices for the following year are updated in July. Please contact Rebecca Corbin at Purdue University Press with any questions.
