Reduced-price subscriptions to IUCr journals

The International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) offers reduced-price institutional subscriptions to its six print journals.

Each year 20 new reduced-price subscriptions will be available for each of the six print journals. These 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. Free online access to the journals via Crystallography Journals Online is included.

1. General conditions

The reduced-price subscriptions are distributed on a competitive basis according to the following rules:

  • (i) The reduced-price subscriptions should be distributed on a fair regional basis.

  • (ii) Countries which are members of the IUCr should receive priority over non-member countries.

  • (iii) Institutions publishing papers in IUCr journals should receive preference.

  • (iv) Reduced-price subscriptions are only open to institutions taking out new subscriptions.

2. Special conditions for 2001

The scheme will commence in 2001. Exceptionally only institutions that have not held a subscription in the years 1998–2000 will be eligible. 60 reduced-price subscriptions for each journal will be awarded as follows:

  • (i) 20 with a duration of 1 year,

  • (ii) 20 with a duration of 2 years,

  • (iii) 20 with a duration of 3 years.

When the one-year and two-year reduced-price subscriptions expire, institutions are eligible to re-enter the scheme up to a maximum period of three years.

3. Administration

Application forms may be downloaded from the address // and may also be obtained from:

The Executive Secretary, International Union of Crystallography, 2 Abbey Square, Chester, CH1 2HU, England.

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.
