How to Subscribe

Recognizing the increasing trend towards digital media consumption, in 2013 we adopted a paid subscription model for all of our services, and currently offer three basic types of subscription: Print Only, Online Only and Global Asia Plus (print and online).

Our rates for subscribing to the print edition are unchanged, but we do now charge modestly for our online content — please scroll down to see all of the rates. If you would like to receive the print edition and have online access too, Global Asia Plus offers the very best discounts and the flexibility to choose when, where and how to read Global Asia.

We continue to offer three classes of subscription: a standard option for private individuals, a discounted option for students in secondary or tertiary education at accredited institutions, and institutional subscriptions.

We also recognize that some readers are light or occasional users of our website, so we do allow a limited number of free articles: on registration, readers will get free access to read up to five articles anywhere on the site per three-month edition period. You only need a subscription to read more than five articles online or to download PDF files of published articles.

Our live blog, Global Asia Forum, remains free to all readers along with unlimited browsing of article summaries and our archive search.


You can subscribe for one year (4 issues) or get great discounts for 2 years (8 issues). For Print and Global Asia Plus subscribers inside Korea, we are also pleased to be able to offer a further $20 per year discount as Global Asia is printed in Seoul and we can waive delivery fees. For international deliveries, meanwhile, we aim to offer subscriptions to the print magazine anywhere in the world where a standard postal service is available.
