International Journals

Because the university subscribed journals are ordered in the package, the library does a subscription investigation at the university-wide once a year (around July) and accepts subscription/unsubscription applications of the next year(January-December).
We order to the publishers through the agencies around October. You cannot unsubscribe after order or during the contract period.
And irrespective of place of utilization, the institutional pricing is applied.

About Budget

The subscription is paid for a year or a multi-year period, so you should designate the budget which is annually allocated as a continued research expense.
