If you’ve been waiting for VQR to be available as a digital subscription, we’re happy to announce that’s now possible, starting with the universal PDF format. (More formats and options will be rolled out in the coming months.)
How the digital subscription works
Within one business day after you place your order online, you will receive an e-mail with a link to download the current issue of VQR. When future issues become available, you will receive notification via e-mail.
Digital issues are currently available as PDFs; when other formats become available, you will receive notification on how to access any and all formats.
To ensure the best reading experience
VQR’s digital edition is delivered as a PDF, a universal document format that works across all platforms and devices. For the best possible reading experience on your desktop or laptop, we recommend using Adobe Reader, a free PDF viewing software.
VQR’s digital edition can be read and stored in iBooks, Nook, and Kindle reading apps, among others, but we recommend that tablet users load the issue in a premium PDF reading app, such as GoodReader, for the best possible reading experience. In addition to its annotation tools, GoodReader allows you to view VQR in spreads, which is ideal for feature photographs that extend across two pages.
We don’t currently recommend the digital sub for people on mobile devices, unless you’re OK navigating letter-size PDFs on a mobile screen.
Features of VQR’s digital PDF edition:
• Fully bookmarked content, for easy navigation
• Fully linked content, so you can easily access articles by clicking on front and back cover copy, the table of contents, and contributor names (in addition to using the PDF bookmarks)
• Fully searchable content
• Plus all hyperlinks work when clicked if you have an active Internet connection
