Reinstated print subscriptions will not be back dated.

Each member of the American Physical Society may subscribe to up to three APS journals at member rates, plus PROLA, for their personal use. Online access to APS journals at member rates, during the licensed year, has a cap of 300 downloads for a single journal and 450 downloads for PROLA.
