JPAH is a better value than ever

We’ve made a number of exciting changes that make now the perfect time to subscribe to JPAH.

  • Increased frequency. JPAH is now published bimonthly rather than quarterly, so you’ll receive an additional 2 issues every year. This increase allows JPAH to present you with more up-to-date research in this increasingly important field.
  • Larger format. We recently increased the size of each issue from 6 x 9 to 8 1/2 x 11. This new larger size means you’ll receive 2-3 additional papers in every issue.
  • Free access to back issues. With our new pricing structure, all subscribers can now receive both the print and online versions of the journal for the same price as the print version alone. Your online subscription gives you access to all back issues – that’s five years of excellent research in the field. Our back issue search function helps you find the information you need in just seconds.
  • Supplemental issues. Human Kinetics is proud to be working with respected researchers and organizations to publish several supplemental issues in the coming year. Subscribe now to start receiving to start receiving your extra issues. We anticipate publishing supplements throughout 2011. Subscribe for two years now to continue receiving extra issues at this year’s low rates.
