Subscription Agencies

Subscription agencies may order institutional subscriptions (also known as membership) only for their clients, and an agency commission is applicable to such orders. Individual membership and PreK-8 school membership are not available through subscription agencies.

NCTM’s Journals are Available Online for Institutions through JSTOR!   

NCTM now offers Electronic-Only and Print+Electronic subscriptions via the JSTOR Current Scholarship Program. Renew or order your new subscriptions with JSTOR today:

Subscribers will have the option to access publications’ complete run on JSTOR—from the first issue through the most recent issue. With all the archival and current content available on a single platform, NCTM subscribers will enjoy easy access on a robust platform with powerful discovery and linking features to aid their teaching and research.

Benefits of JSTOR’s Current Scholarship Program: 

  • Seamless access to current and historical content on a single, familiar platform
  • Post-cancellation access/perpetual access offered
  • Digital preservation assured
  • COUNTER compliant usage reports
  • NCTM journals include, Teaching Children Mathematics, Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, Mathematics Teacher, Journal for Research in Mathematics Education and the new, online-only co-published (with AMTE) Mathematics Teacher Educator.

Print-only subscriptions will continue to be handled under NCTM's existing business terms and should be ordered directly through NCTM.  

Orders must include the following information for each recipient – Institution name (or a unique identifier for that enduser only), full mailing address (either direct ship or reship), your reference number for each enduser with a particular journal, and whether the order is for a new or renewal membership/subscription. We strongly recommend that you also provide us with the address used for the previous year’s order, if you are renewing with a change of address, and the reference number used the previous year, if you do not maintain the same reference number for a single client from year to year. This information helps us to avoid duplicate or missing subscriptions, and the resultant disruptions in service to your clients.

Additional Information For Agencies 

  1. Membership Start Dates: Orders are entered according to the date remittance is received in the NCTM Headquarters Office. We therefore cannot honor requests for specific start dates to subscriptions, nor can we prorate subscriptions for other than full years. Back issues for the past 18 months are generally available for purchase – call (800-235-7566) or e-mail ( for prices. A multi-year plan is available; you can lock in your client’s subscription for up to three years at today's rates.
  2. Remittance: All orders received must be accompanied by remittance. If payment is insufficient, the order will be returned rather than billed for a balance due.
  3. Renewals: Agencies are given ample time to renew client subscriptions; NCTM does not send renewal notices directly to agency customers until one month prior to expiration.
  4. Claims: Claims for missing issues covered by your client’s subscription will be honored if placed in a timely fashion. Note that we do NOT backdate subscriptions, and that journal fulfillment begins with the month following the nominal start of the membership. Your domestic subscribers should allow two (2) weeks after the cover date, Canadian subscribers three (3) weeks, and other subscribers outside the US and Canada should allow two (2) months before placing a claim with you. Please place all domestic claims within three (3) months of the cover date; Canadian and other foreign claims must be no older than six (6) months.
