FAQ

1. What is the difference between a standing order and a subscription?
2. When do the print editions ship? What are the available dates? When is my Web access available? Why does my subscription term start on this date?

1. What is the difference between a standing order and a subscription?

Several updated editions of some staff directories are released each year. A standing order serves you one edition in a year, and you have a standing order to receive that same edition, year after year. For example, if you have a standing order for the summer edition, you will receive just the summer edition, and no other updates, until the summer edition is released again the following year. Then you receive the summer edition again automatically and you are invoiced for that edition. For staff directories that only publish once a year, you can get a standing order to the book to receive it every year when it releases, or if there is a free login that comes with the book order, then request an automatic renewal of the order from year to year.

A subscription serves you all of the updated editions that come out in a subscription year, and you must renew it at the end of the year in order to continue.
