There is no need to register for this trial' we are simply running subscriptions as a trial initiative to gauge popularity before investing in development to fully digitise it. We will be running this trial until September 2018 at the very least.

Not All eBooks

We've looked carefully at all the data available to us to try and carefully construct meaningful subscription packages at more affordable prices rather than simply doing a single 'all eBook' subscription. That would not only be too expensive but would also provide access to content that customers just aren't going to use. However, this is a trial so please let us know if you have any constructive feedback by emailing publications@rya.org.uk and we'll take a serious look at it.

New Content and Updates

New editions or new titles that are relevant to a subscription package will be automatically available to subscribers during their subscription period. They will appear in the 'owned' tab of the 'my eBooks' section as well as in their category. It should have 'subscribed' underneath the cover image, indicating that you can download it without charge further charge.

Editions that have been replaced will no longer appear as available to download but your access will remain as long as the old edition is downloaded to your device (within your subscription period).

Updates to existing eBooks will be shown by 'update available' appearing underneath the cover image if the eBook is already downloaded.

Subscription Only Content

Instructors will be able to activate additional free content such as syllabus and logbooks and course pack books that are relevant to their subscription package. This additional content is hidden from view until an instructor's credentials are verified and this is activated.
