The quickest and most efficient method to order subscriptions and back issues of The Skeptic is via our secure online shop, for new subscriptions and renewals.

It is also possible to place orders in the post using the subscription form (pdf) and the address below. Orders by post necessarily take a little longer than those through the online shop, however we do endeavour to process all orders as quickly as possible. Enquiries should be addressed to our Subscriptions and Finance Manager, Mike Hutchinson, using the details below.

New subscriptions and renewals are available for durations of 1 year (4 issues), two years (8 issues) and 3 years (12 issues).

If you are renewing your subscription, please also include the reference number and expiry issue shown on the renewal invitation. Shipping is included for orders to the UK. An additional cost will, however, be added for shipping orders to the 'rest of the world'.

Back Issues
Back issues are available at a cost of £5 per issue for UK residents and £6 per issue for the rest of the world (but see below for discount rates for orders of multiple back issues). Back issues can be found from the "Back issues" category, within the shop.

If you are ordering more than one back issue at one time, then the following discounts can be applied:

Order 2 - 6 issues, deduct 10%
Order 7 - 12 issues, deduct 20%
Order 13 or more issues, deduct 30%

Payment Methods
Although we use PayPal to process payments for The Skeptic Magazine and for European subscriptions to Skeptical Inquirer, you can stil pay with a normal credit or debit card. Simply click through the various options in our online shop and when you are redirected to the PayPal payment page, choose the link under "Don't have a PayPal account? No problem, continue checkout."

Choosing this option will allow you to pay by:
Visa/Delta/Electron, Switch/Maestro, Solo, MasterCard/Eurocard, or American Express. We also accept payments from PayPal accounts. If you are familiar with eBay, this is equally as straightforward.

By post
Alternatively, we do accept cheques (in Pounds Sterling) and postal orders (payable to 'The Skeptic'), however you will need to complete the subscription form. We also accept a limited number of credit/debit cards for postal applications. For MasterCard and Visa, please quote your name as it appears on your card, including card number and expiry date.

Please note: regardless of payment method, your order will only be confirmed after successfully completing payment. If you experience any difficulty with ordering, please contact Mike Hutchinson, the Subscriptions Manager, using the details below.
