The “Swiss Review” online instead of printed


Practical tips for switching

The “Swiss Review” is published both in printed form and in an online version. OSA, which is the publisher of the “Review”, wants to keep it this way. However, printing and shipping costs are an enormous expenditure item and shipping is not always the most ecologically sensible option. Those who appreciate the advantages of the electronic version are therefore advised to switch from print to online. By doing this, you will receive the “Review” earlier and have access to all content at any time and from any location. When doing so, it is important to report that you are switching! It does not help the environment or save costs if you read the electronic version of the “Review” before the printed version lands in your mailbox, only to throw it into the waste paper basket without having read it.

How do I switch?

  • The recommended way is to report the change from print to online to the Swiss representation in your country of residence. This can be done either by email or by letter.
  • Another option is to use the online desk of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), which was created for Swiss Abroad. Prior registration is required to use the online desk.
  • The last option is to send an email to However, in order to simplify the administration of change requests, the first two options are preferred.

Voluntary subscription fee

As important as it is for the “Review” to keep printing and shipping costs low, it is clearly commited to the printed edition. Readers who particularly appreciate receiving the printed edition are now able to support it with a voluntary subscription fee. Your support expressed in this way will help us to offer the “Review” on paper in the same quality for many years to come.
