Coverage includes 1996–present. Long-term archiving solutions for older content (pre-1996) is under review; for example, we are a new participant in LOCKSS, and are looking into other possibilities like open access or CLOCKSS.

Effective January 2013, electronic access is delivered via a paid term /perpetual use model (i.e., subscribers have perpetual access to the volume/content published during that paid term).

Example: a subscriber has an online subscription in 2015. They will have access to the 2015 volume/content in future years. Should they maintain a current subscription, they are also permitted to view backfiles on the site, but only for the duration of a paid term. If they don't renew, they only have access to 2015 in the future.
