Leiden – 10 July 2023

Brill is pleased to announce that its global distribution channels are fully operational again. This includes journal subscriptions and print orders, for both Print on Demand (POD) and stock titles. Electronic publications have been and are available as usual.

After the insolvency of Brill’s previous distributor in October 2022, we have rebuilt the global distribution of books and journals with our new partners ABS, BTPS and CB. All frontlist titles as well as the majority of our backlist are available for ordering. Customers that have renewed their 2023 subscription have access to the electronic version and will receive print issues soon.

We would like to thank our customers and authors for the trust in our company and for the patience during this challenging period. We are working hard to bring our service to a next level while solving the backlog of the last months.
