Due to COVID-19, CUP is not currently printing journals:
"Due to the development and impact of the coronavirus pandemic, we are seeing significant disruption to the global supply chain for the manufacture and distribution of printed journals. We have therefore taken the unprecedented decision to halt all journal issue printing from 25th March until further notice.
We apologise for the impact that this will have, but physical delivery of printed journals is becoming increasingly difficult and this is causing problems with stock build-up and non-delivery which must be addressed.
We do hope and expect to resume printing in the near future, as soon as the effects of this global disruption have subsided. We will keep the situation under close review, especially with regard to public health concerns and will update you as soon as anything changes."
