Information correct as of August 2021

Online access to full-text

Subscribers to journals published by the Hogrefe group (Hogrefe Verlag, Hogrefe Publishing, Hogrefe AG) are provided with access to the corresponding full-text online. The precise conditions differ between individual and institutional subscribers.

Online subscriptions always include access to the complete archive of back issues (usually starting with the 1999 volume) during the term of the subscription.

Individual subscribers

Individual subscribers will be provided with personal access to full-text articles via email address and password. The online access is already included in the subscription price. A user account for the electronic access can easily be set up on our eJournals platform.

Our support team will activate the access for our subscribers via email.

Journals package for psychology journals:
For an additional fee of € 355.00 / CHF 47400, individual subscribers can also obtain online access to the full-text (in general, including back issues from 1999 onwards) of all 28 active psychology journals as well as the 13 archive journals published by the Hogrefe group (PsyJOURNALS package). Precondition for ordering the package is an individual subscription to any one journal from the portfolio of the Hogrefe group.

Institutional subscribers

Institutional customers must pay a fee to obtain electronic access to the journals. Institutions have the choice between a print-only subscription, an eOnly subscription, or a combination of print and online. Prices are arranged in ascending order.

Fees for online access to the journals depend on the size of the institution. For academic institutions and schools, the size is determined on the basis of the number of “full-time equivalents” (FTEs; students, teaching staff, research staff) and for public libraries on the basis of the number of registered users (throughout the institution, not single departments). Hospitals will be invoiced on the basis of their total number of beds (throughout the institution, not single departments). For all other institutions (counselling services, public authorities, commercial organizations, etc.), the size is determined on the basis of the number of potential qualifi ed users, e. g., psychologists, therapists, counsellors, social workers, etc. (“Relevant Professionals” or RPs).

Using these indicators instiutional customers are categorized in one of the four tiers (1, 2, 3 and 4)

The current price list for all subscription options and tiers can be found here.

Please note that these prices only apply to single-site institutions. Multi-site institutions should request an individual price quotation from our support team via email. The online access is usually granted via IP authentication or Remote Access (Shibboleth). As an alternative we also offer access via URL-referrer.

We will be happy to provide a detailed price quotation tailored to your requirements. Please contact us via email.

Archive rights after termination of subscription
Starting with the 2019 annual volumes, institutional eOnly and Print & Online subscriptions include perpetual access rights to the volumes published during the term of the subscription. Customers who paid separate license fees for the online access in previous years will keep perpetual access rights for these volumes as well.

The eJournals are provided and can be used via the current platform Hogrefe eContent. Should the Hogrefe group be unable to ensure access via Hogrefe eContent, the journal contents may also be distributed through another means (e. g., another online platform or as PDF).


Free access to bibliographic information: Full bibliographic information and abstracts are available free of charge for non-subscribers.
