Key points

  1. The more ads you book, the cheaper the price. A 4-ad booking results in a total discount of 35%.

  2. Flexible payment options When you place your booking we will set up a payment plan. You can choose whether you'd like to pay by credit card, direct debit or bank transfer (BACs). You won’t be asked to pay anything upfront but will be billed as each ad becomes due.

  3. What you see is what you get – we mean what we say about being transparent and upfront. We all hate finding out that someone bought the same thing but got it at half the price!!!

  4. Keep up to date with advertising offers – email to sign up for our marketing opportunities update and we will email these as and when they are announced.

Understanding the prices

Take a look at the prices and see what fits into your budget.

IMPORTANT - feel free to mix and match the size of your ads - the price is based on the quantity of ads booked. So for example if you booked 4 ads with a mix of sizes, you would still qualify for the 4-series price for all the ads.

  • 1 ad = 0% discount
  • 2 ads = 15% discount
  • 3 ads = 28% discount
  • 4 ads = 35% discount

Check the deadlines to make sure you can provide artwork in time.

Terms and conditions

General conditions - The publisher reserves the right to refuse any advertisement considered unsuitable for inclusion in the publication. No responsibility will be accepted where the publication is delayed or prevented by factors beyond the control of the publisher; such factors include but are not confined to printing, shipping and local delivery.

When copy for a space booking fails to meet the deadline, or when a client under a contract cancels an advertisement, where applicable the publisher reserves the right to repeat the previous advertisement at full cost to the client, or to render a charge for the full space cost. The publisher is not liable to accept cancellations or alterations to space bookings after the artwork deadline. Where advertising copy is communicated by telephone, no responsibility is accepted for errors.

Positioning of advertisements - Other than the stated preferred positions, the positioning of advertisements will be at the discretion of the publisher, who, whilst having due regard for the client’s wishes, will take into account the journal’s design requirements, technical necessities and the need to present the entire contents to the reader in a form deemed suitable and appropriate.

Approval of advertisements - Colour PDFs or print proofs are supplied to the client for all advertisements designed by the publisher. It is the client’s responsibility to advise on any required corrections by the date stipulated. If no response is received, a correct proof will otherwise be assumed.

Accuracy of colour reproductions - Whilst the publisher endeavors to produce the journal to a very high standard, there are commercial reproduction and colour printing limitations. As such no guarantee of precise and accurate colour reproduction is given or implied by the publisher. It is the client’s responsibility to satisfy their artist’s requirements or transparency accuracy. Similarly this applies to reproductions from digital scans and images supplied to the publisher. When in doubt please seek our advice on such matters.

Artwork - The client has the option to supply complete artwork for reproduction or to use the publisher’s services to produce artwork for advertisements. When artwork/ materials supplied by the client are deemed to be unsatisfactory for reproduction the publisher reserves the right to correct, redesign or refuse the artwork. Our redesign fee is £80.

Payment terms - The ad rates available on the website ( are based on receiving payment by credit or debit card by the booking/payment deadline. Should you require an invoice this will incur an additional 35% fee on the booking total. Payment by invoice is still required by the booking/payment deadline. If no payment has been received by the payment deadline we will remove your ad from the schedule and you will still be liable for the cost of that space, as your booking will have prevented someone else from making use of that space. If for any reason you can’t make the payment deadline – please email or call Sheena on +44 (0)203 012 1906 before the deadline passes, and explain your predicament and we will do our best to find a way to help you resolve the situation.
