Important Information for new JPGN contract
As part of JPGN’s forthcoming change in publisher from Wolters Kluwer to Wiley, beginning with the January 2024 issue JPGN will be discontinuing print distribution of journal copies to ESPGHAN members.
- Members will continue to have online access to the journal, but will be issued an updated login and password to Wiley’s online platform
- Wiley will be reaching out to members via email with instructions on how to set up their access to the journal before the end of 2023
- Members who are interested in continuing to receive print copies of JPGN will have the option to purchase a print-on-demand subscription from Wiley at a discounted member rate. Instructions on how to place this order will be available in the coming weeks.
