Dear BSRLM members,
We are sorry to announce that due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Taylor and Francis have, with great reluctance, decided to stop printing journals from 10 April until further notice.
They are seeing disruption to the distribution supply chain for printed journals: as of the first week of April the postal services of 42 countries have stopped accepting inward deliveries. In addition, many air mail services in and out of their major print hubs in the UK, US and Singapore are no longer operating due to reduced air freight capacity. Finally, a significant number of institutions they mail journals to are closed for business and are no longer accepting post.
Taylor and Francis plan to resume printing in May and, at the point they do start to print again, members will receive the print issues that would have been dispatched during the period in which printing ceased. They will keep the situation under close review, especially with regard to public health concerns, and keep us updated with any changes.
Please view the following page with information on FAQs.
We apologise that this means that the print version of the first issue of the 2020 volume of RME will be substantially delayed. However, we want to reassure you that online access to RME is not affected. You can continue to access the online version of RME through this link.
