Kluwer Offers Gracing for Electronic Journal Subscriptions

NEW YORK, NY - October 25, 2002 - Kluwer Academic Publishers (KAP) will
provide a "gracing" period of 3 months for subscribers to online journals.
Gracing refers to the practice of keeping access open for a specified time
period in an effort to prevent customers being denied access to their
journals on January 1 each year when their subscriptions have been renewed
and pre-paid in good time.

This grace period will allow Kluwer and its subscription agent partners to
ensure that all orders for online access are properly processed during the
busy renewal season.  Readers from registered institutions will be able to
download articles from journals to which their institution had electronic
access in 2002, even if a renewal order has not yet been processed.

This three-month grace period (to March 31, 2003) is actually one month
longer than the period recommended by the Association of Subscription Agents
and Intermediaries (http://www.subscription-agents.org).  Kluwer will
continue to make every effort to release journal prices by August 31 of each
