DFM Covid-19 Update

DFM Covid-19 - UPDATE
Digital Forensics Magazine is not immune to the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. We have take steps to strive to keep the magazine alive during the current turbulent time the world is living through.

We are making changes to our subscriptions as a result of the changes Digital Forensics Magazine has had to make resulting from the impact of the Covid-19 Coronavirus pandemic. These changes have already started to be implemented and you are only affected if you have a print subscription to the magazine. If you have a digital subscription nothing changes with regard to your access to the magazine.

In order to maintain the viability of the magazine we have decided to cease provision of any form of print version of the magazine. This will be effective immediately following Issue 42 and will continue indefinitely. It is unlikely that we will return to print other than any special issues as the cost of print in small quantities is just not cost effective. Fortunately, this only effects a small number of individual subscribers and we are working hard to refund any portion of the balance between the print subscription and the digital subscription that may be due. We would ask that you bear with us whilst we work through the subscription database. Those of you who have had renewals recently will have seen that we have already refunded the non-digital portion of the subscription.

We have maintained the cost of the magazine at it current levels for some time now, however this cannot be maintained indefinitely, and we retain the right to increase the annual digital subscription in the future should circumstances dictate that this is prudent. 

This leaves only those who have corporate print subscriptions to be converted to digital only subscriptions. We will be simplifying the digital subscription for corporates to allow multiple users to access the digital copies concurrently, we will also be increasing our technology and monitoring of subscription usage to ensure that subscribers are taking out the correct subscriptions. More on this will be published as the systems come online. We will be contacting the corporate subscribers individually to transfer them where required to the new subscription, again please bear with us as we work through the database.

Lastly, for the collectors out there, we do have a number of printed back issues that we have in our store and these are available to purchase through the website, or by contacting us directly to see if certain issues are still available. Stocks of some issues are very limited, so first come first served and book early to avoid disappointment. If anyone has any question or concern over their subscription, they should raise a support ticket via the website.
