Due to the ongoing impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Taylor & Francis (T&F), the publisher of Journal of Baltic Studies has decided to stop printing journals from 10th April until further notice.
T&F apologizes for how this will affect JBS readers and wants to reassure everyone that online access to journal content is not affected. Journal of Baltic Studies will continue to publish online on the T&F Online platform according to its usual schedule.
T&F is 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 our 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.
T&F plans to resume printing in May and, at the point they do start to print again, all AABS members and JBS subscribers will receive the print issues that would have been dispatched during the period in which printing ceased. T&F will keep the situation under close review, especially with regard to public health concerns, and will keep the public updated with any changes.
