The International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) offers reduced-price online institutional subscriptions to its journals. These subscriptions will last for three years and cover from 25 to 85% of the costs of subscriptions. Successful applicants will be invoiced for 75 to 15% of the list price. (Special cases: The IUCr recognises that in some cases it is impossible for libraries to raise any funds and therefore a limited number of 100% grants are available.)
The reduced-price subscriptions are distributed on a competitive basis according to the following rules:
- The reduced-price subscriptions should be distributed on a fair regional basis.
- Countries which are members of the IUCr should receive priority over non-member countries.
- Institutions publishing papers in IUCr journals will receive preference.
- Reduced-price subscriptions are only open to institutions taking out new subscriptions.
The completed application form should be returned to:

Reduced-price subscriptions are financed from the IUCr's Journals Grant Fund, and the granting procedure is determined by a Sub-committee of the IUCr Executive Committee, chaired by a member of the IUCr Executive Committee. The Sub-committee reports to the IUCr Executive Committee by providing a list of applicants in order of priority.
IUCr Journals also participate in Wiley programs that provide free or low-cost online access to research in developing countries.
