We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on our websites. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Session cookies do not remain on your hard drive after you close down your browser. If you do not wish to accept any cookies or wish to be notified when a cookie is sent you can modify your browser preferences – the Help feature in your browser will tell you how to do this. If you decide to restrict or refuse cookies then please be aware that this may impact the functionality of KPubS’s website and journals. For example, refusing the permanent login cookie that is saved on your computer's hard drive will disable the auto-login feature.
