Due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, Taylor & Francis (T&F), the publisher of Journal of Baltic Studies decided to stop printing journals from 10th April. The publisher has now announced that the print and distribution of their journals will be resumed from 11th May, with the first copies being dispatched by 18th May. The next issue of Journal of Baltic Studies (JBS 51/2) is expected to be printed and distributed by the end of May.
After the resumption of print services, AABS members and other JBS subscribers will receive print issues that are part of their subscription, although there may be a delay because some countries are still operating reduced or closed postal services, and international freight carriage is subject to delays and changes to routing at short notice. In the event that airfreight services restart later in the year people may receive issues out of order, as earlier issues posted by sea might arrive with them after later issues posted by air.
T&F apologizes for how this will affect JBS readers and wants to reassure everyone that online access to journal content has not been affected. Journal of Baltic Studies has continued to publish online on the T&F Online platform according to its usual schedule.
The current pandemic has caused unprecedented disruption to the global distribution network. Many countries and regions are under a form of lockdown, with bottlenecks and backlogs at customs and logistics centers. T&F appreciates everyone’s patience at this difficult time, and will keep the public posted with latest news and updates.
