How can I order a single issue of a journal?

To order a journal issue by phone with your credit card and/or to obtain availability information, contact the Order Department at (800) 374-2721. Single issue pricing for current year journals is determined by the customer type (member, individual, institution, etc.), journal title and frequency. Please use the subscription price, divided by the number of issues.

Single issues of journals purchased beginning July 1 following the year the journal was published are typically $20-$25 each, plus shipping cost

Special issues may be higher. Please note that we only carry the previous five years, plus the current year. Issues published on special topics may be available longer. Visit the Special Issues listings page.

How do I get a copy of an article in an APA journal?

Check your local public library or college/university library. They may have the journal or book on their shelves, or they may have access to PsycARTICLES. If not, they may be able to get the article for you through interlibrary loan.

Individuals can purchase annual subscription packages or on-demand access to PsycARTICLES. Visit the APA Databases Access for Individuals page for details.

For a specific list of journals and years covered, visit the PsycARTICLES Journal History. To track down earlier articles, you may wish to contact your institutional library, APA Library, the APA Order Department, or the former publisher of the journal.
