It is the advertisers’ responsibility to ensure the advertisement is submitted in the correct format for use, as specified by the Association at the time of booking. All orders must be confirmed in writing.

Online: Advertisers may book impressions for one month or multiple consecutive or multiple selected months. If more than one month of impressions is booked the current creative will be repeated unless new instructions have been received.

Inserts: Advertisers may book to have an insert placed in the print copy of Learned Publishing, it is their responsibility to supply the ready printed inserts to the printer, or provide artwork for these to be printed by a printer contracted by the Association at cost.
