Frequently asked questions

Can I buy publications online?

Recent publications can be bought simply by choosing the appropriate price and then clicking the Buy Now button. The prices depend on whether or not you are a member, and on the area to which you want the item delivered (UK,the rest of Europe, or the rest of the World). To get members' prices on all publications you buy this year, select Member (+ annual fee) for your first order. Clicking the button will take you to the PayPal web site (you should see the LIS logo up at the top), where you can pay. Make sure your PayPal address is the address to which you want the item delivered. Each purchase is a separate PayPal transaction (there is no checkout or continue shopping), so if you want to buy a number of volumes you may be able to save on delivery charges by emailing us with your order.

Do you accept credit cards?

Currently we cannot accept credit card payments directly, but if you want to pay by credit or debit card, buy online as described above or send us an email and we will send you a Paypal invoice.

Why can't I find what I'm looking for in the Find box?

The Find box only filters the titles on that Web page. If you're trying to find a item published in a particular year, or with a specific order number, try sorting the year or item column. Try the all publications page if you're not sure what you're looking for - all the columns can be sorted.

How do I sort the columns?

Click on the column headings. This toggles the order in which the columns are sorted.
