What does a Mosaic subscription get me?


A subscription—at $4.99 a month or at a discounted rate of $30.00 a year—provides you with unlimited access to Mosaic content across any and all of your web devices. This includes our Monthly Essays and their accompanying response pieces, deep looks at issues and themes of pressing significance; our Observations, topical pieces on a myriad of subjects; and our daily Editors’ Picks, a curated selection of the day’s most important items from elsewhere around the web.


Do I get a physical copy of Mosaic with my subscription?


No: Mosaic is on the web only.


How do I subscribe?


Follow this link!


What methods can I use to pay?


We accept credit cards. Your credit-card information is kept highly secure.


Do you offer a special student or educator rate?


Not at the moment, but possibly in the future.


Can I give a Mosaic subscription as a gift?


Yes! The ability to send a gift subscription will be ready a few days after the subscription model launches.


What is Mosaic‘s cancellation policy?


You can cancel your subscription at any time. When you cancel a monthly plan, we will stop charging your card the following month. For an annual plan, you can receive a prorated refund based on how much time is left on your subscription. Just email us at and we’ll sort it out for you.


Can I still read Mosaic if I don’t subscribe?


Non-subscribers can read up to three free articles in each calendar month.


I’m a subscriber but I’ve forgotten my log-in info. What do I do?

How do I renew my subscription?


For your convenience, all of our subscriptions renew automatically. If you’ve subscribed at the annual rate, you’ll receive a reminder email before the subscription is renewed and before your credit card is charged.


If I live outside the U.S., can I pay a special international rate?


Regardless of where you are in the world, the rate for full access is the same. All subscriptions are charged in U.S. dollars.


Does one subscription cover multiple devices?


Yes. Computer, phone, tablet—one subscription is all you need.


I don’t see my question here. What should I do?


Email us directly at and we’ll reply as fast as we can.
