Four 96-page print issues of Planet, published in February, May, August and November.
Access to Planet Digital. Planet Digital is the digital edition of Planet exclusively available to subscribers via password. It includes access to the same material as in the current issue of Planet + back issues dating from 2015 onwards + extra multimedia material.
Digital-only, print-only and institutional subscriptions are also available.
Due to a change in regulations, from July 2021 onwards, EU and EEA countries will charge VAT on imports of low-value goods. Not all EU and EEA countries charge VAT on magazines, and some do at reduced rate. If as a resident of an EU/EEA country you are charged VAT (and possibly postal fees due to these changes) this will need to be collected by your postal operator or courier on delivery. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Please note that institutional subscriptions will not be charged VAT in any EU/EEA country.
Terms and conditions for Planet Digital:
For those with Standard Subscriptions who access Planet Digital alongside the print edition, you will receive Planet Digital access until the time when an issue which is not included in your print subscription is published. For Planet Digital-only subscribers, you will receive access for 365 days from activation. For all subscribers who renew via direct debit, or who renew via other means before your subscription lapses: you will receive continuous access to Planet Digital. Planet Digital will be published during the same month as the print magazine.
Planet Digital access will be enabled manually rather than automatically, so the timing of activating your access will depend on staff availability in the office. We will strive to activate your access as soon as possible.
