We want to know if you are regularly receiving issues late or missing them altogether. The Weekly Standard should be delivered to your address soon after it is mailed and no later than the issue's cover date.

Please note that The Weekly Standard is published 48 times a year including four double issues. Whenever you receive a magazine that has TWO dates on the cover, it means that you will not receive a magazine the following week.

International Subscriptions


I live outside the United States. How do I subscribe?
There are two ways to subscribe if you live outside of the United States: Paperless and Regular Mailed subscription. All international subscriptions must be paid in full prior to commencement of service.

Paperless subscriptions are $29.96 for 48 weeks of access to the Subscriber Only area of weeklystandard.com. The Subscriber Only area contains the latest issue of the magazine as soon as it sent to our printer each week in an easy to read Adobe PDF format - that is, an exact electronic, full color replica of the printed magazine. Further, the Subscriber Only area contains all back issues in a browsable Adobe PDF format and a searchable text format. All you will need to access your Paperless subscription is an email address and a password of your choosing. To view the Adobe PDFs you will simply need a FREE copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer.

Regular Mailed subscriptions are available at $59.96 for 48 issues PLUS additional shipping charges:

  Canada: $65.00 shipping = $124.96
  Mexico: $80.00 shipping = $139.96
  Australia, Japan, New Zealand: $170.00 shipping = $229.96
  All other foreign locations: $155.00 shipping = $214.96

 

* Shipping times to Canada and abroad vary resulting in up to a six week delay for the delivery of your issues. Airmail shipping is faster and delivery should take about a week

Regular Mailed subscribers will also have access to the Subscriber Only area and all of its content.

Current Canadian/International subscribers who would like to convert their Regular Mailed subscription to a Paperless subscription may contact us by CLICKING HERE. Please provide your name and address as they appear on your mailing label. We will cancel your mailed subscription and put the remaining postage paid to a Paperless subscription. Of course, if you would like to keep your Regular Mailed subscription, you will also have access to the Subscriber Only area and all its content.

Cancellation


How may I cancel my subscription?
If you are ever dissatisfied with The Weekly Standard and wish to cancel your subscription, we will gladly refund to you the amount you paid for all remaining issues. Please call 1-800-274-7293.


If my subscription expires, or I cancel it, will I still be able to view each new issue in Adobe PDF and browse back issues in the virtual library?
No. Those are benefits of being a subscriber to The Weekly Standard. But you will still be able to read The Weekly Standard Blog, which features reports and commentary written just for the web, and also any articles from recent issues of The Weekly Standard that we decide to post.

What is Adobe PDF?
Adobe PDF stands for Portable Document Format and is manufactured by Adobe. It is used for exchanging page data and has become universally accepted as the standard format for such exchange. For example, the U.S. Government Printing Office formats the Federal Register Online in Adobe PDF. Most online applications and tax forms are also formatted in Adobe PDF. All browsers now come with the tools necessary for opening a document formatted in Adobe PDF - the Adobe plug-in (PDFViewer) and the Adobe Reader. But if for some reason your browser doesn't come with these tools, you may go to adobe.com and download them.
