Subscribing to foriegn science magazines from India is very expensive. In addition copies can get lost in mail. Only solution downloadable digital editions.

Oh yes I bet that they are expensive to subscribe to, so I think in India that it would be best to download a digital edition seeing that they are getting lost or even stolen in the mail. Wow that is a lot of difference in the price isn't it especially if it gets lost and you don't even have the chance to read the magazine. Well this is true as well in regards to the shelf space and you would not require this at all as everything would be on your computer.
