Online subscribers are entitled access to all back issues published by Human Kinetics for each title for the duration of the subscription, as well as Ahead of Print content for the subscribed content.

Per Title Subscriptions vs. Site License Subscriptions

To better accommodate educational institutions subscribing to multiple journal titles, we offer annual site license options, and these orders may be placed through subscription agents. A site license offers online-only access to all of our 27 journals for 1 year, including all back content and Ahead of Print content. In addition to site licenses, we continue to offer institutional per title subscriptions. 

Perpetual Access

Human Kinetics has named Portico as a perpetual access source for our former subscribers to request ongoing access to past subscribed content. Note that these subscribers must also be Portico-participating libraries.
