JPC&C is a copyrighted, professional journal and, as such, access to it is restricted. Please do not share your login information or copy, forward, or otherwise share the journal or link to the journal with anyone except as permitted by SAGE’s fair use policies – click here.

Most of the cost of producing JPC&C is raised from institutional subscriptions. If you would like your institution to have access to JPC&C please click here and complete the questionnaire so that SAGE Publications can initiate contact with the person at your workplace or institution who is in charge of journal subscriptions.

By having JPC&C available for your students and for professional colleagues in your work setting, you will be able to refer them to JPC&C articles that are relevant for their work or for the interface between their specialization and yours.

We hope you find JPC&C to be a worthwhile resource in your professional career!
