Are you ordering the print edition? If so, the mailing list for the next edition (Spring-Summer 2018) was sent to our direct mail provider on April 30, 2018. As the result, orders received after that date and time will not start receiving POV until September, when the Fall 2018 edition will be distributed. However, you can download and print a complete copy of the Spring-Summer 2018 edition when it is ready (probably mid-May) by clicking on "Point of View," then "2018 Editions."
