Subscribing to the IJTLD

The IJTLD is a hybrid journal – i.e., a subscription-based journal that also offers an Open Access option (because not all authors have funds for Open Access). As a not-for-profit, we aim to ensure that our subscription prices are fair and equitable.

A subscription provides immediate, unrestricted access to all our content including: Original Articles, Reviews, Editorials, Letters and Correspondence on all aspects of lung disease and lung health. Also, in October 2021 we will launch the first of a new series – The IJTLD Clinical Standards for Lung Health - written by a global authorship of experts for each area of lung health.

A subscription to the IJTLD is for a calendar year running from January to December (along with archive content) – see categories below.
