Help Topic: Recommend journal

You can use this feature if you belong to a library or institution which is not providing you with access to the full text of a journal you are interested in. It is a quick and easy way for you to contact your librarian and recommend that they take out a subscription.

'Recommend the Journal' is accessible from a journal's home page and any of its information pages. It appears under 'Subscription & Prices' on the left-hand side of the page.

Clicking on 'Recommend the Journal' opens an online library recommendation form.

If you prefer to send your recommendation by mail or internal post rather than by email, you can print out a PDF order form instead.

If we have your librarian's details (based on your IP address) in our database, they will appear in the drop-down list of 'library administrators'. If you click on your library administrator, his/her email address will automatically appear in the 'Email' box below. If your librarian doesn't appear on the list, you can enter a new email address into the 'Email' box. You should then enter your title (optional), first name, family name, department and email address in the relevant boxes.

The title, ISSN and EISSN of the journal you were looking at automatically appears on the page. If you would like to change the journal you want to recommend or add others to your list, click on the arrow at the end of the 'Journal Title' box(es) to bring up a complete list of Cambridge Journals for you to choose from.

You can then choose from a number of different reasons to make your case for recommending this/these journals or you can click on the 'Other reasons' box and add your own supporting message.

Finally, click 'Submit'.
