Policy on adjusting subscription prices to reflect open access publishing

Our customers never pay for an article twice (i.e. once through an article publication charge and again through a subscription charge) as we fully account for revenue from publication charges when setting subscription prices.

2024 prices for journal subscriptions have been adjusted using the most recent full year of data on APC revenue (2022). In total in 2024, 3 journals had reduced subscription prices and 26 journals had reduced subscription price increases due to increases in open access articles and associated publication charge revenue. Journal of Breath Research had its price reduced by 1%, Biomedical Physics & Engineering Express had its price reduced by 0.8% and Journal of Radiological Protection was reduced by 0.6%.

These price adjustments are made for all customers.
