Perpetual Access (24/9/08) A subscription is required for access to content published in the most recent 12 months. All content is made free to everyone 12 months after publication. If a subscription is cancelled access to subscribed content is temporarily suspended, ie, until the content is gradually made free over the next 12 months. This 12-month rolling access policy is what most scholarly publishers use.

Author Deposit (11/8/10)  Authors may deposit our version only, ie the final, redacted version, into their institutional repository. The author's version may not be deposited. They may deposit after the 12-month embargo period has ended or immediately if they published using the "author choice" model.

Contact: Michael Forcinito, Circulation Manager (11/8/10)

Our online service provider may automatically block access when suspicious activity is registering on an account. Such blocking is extremely rare and is only done when the site is at risk of crashing. As a small non-profit publisher we unfortunately are not able to offer a 24/7 response desk. In the unlikely event that access is blocked for a CAUL member, please contact us immediately and we will work with our online service provider to restore access as quickly as possible. (3/8/16)

WCAG compliance: We are not currently WCAG-compliant. We are dependent on our online service provider to implement this and will make it available as soon as possible. (3/8/16)

Most CAUL members fall into Tier 3, but a few have been placed in Tier 4 and several others in Tier 2.  .... we also take usage into consideration when assigning the tiers.
