Information for Subscription Agencies

Journal of the IASS

The IASS continues to accept new subscriptions and renewals on behalf of Subscribers from journal subscription agencies.  The following policies and procedures apply for agencies:

  • Agencies may not place subscriptions and renewals on-line but must contact the IASS Secretariat by other means such as Email, fax or regular mail. 
  • Because the subscription price essentially matches production costs to the IASS, the Association does not offer discounts on subscription prices to agencies.  Rather, it is assumed that agencies receive commissions from their client subscribers. 
  • The IASS must receive the following for each agency client:
  1. the full subscription price (by bank transfer only - see below),
  2. the organization name of the client Subscriber
  3. the name and Email address of the contact person at the Subscriber organization
  4. the option selected by the client Subscriber, and
  5. the full primary and mailing addresses for the Subscriber. 
  • The IASS requires agencies' clients who become electronic Subscribers to themselves input and manage their IP numbers on-line rather than submitting their list of IP numbers to the agency or to the IASS Secretariat.  This is why the Email address is required for the contact person at the Subscriber.
  • Agencies may not themselves become electronic subscribers for indirect dissemination of the electronic version to clients. 
  • The IASS accepts payment (in Euros only) from agencies by bank transfer only (download bank information here); and to avoid confusion regarding payments, notations that accompany payments must clearly include the name(s) of the Subscriber(s).  [NOTE: The IASS Secretariat is unable to accept payments by check or credit card.]
  • The grace period for both renewals and payment is 6 months into the year of expiration, that is, until 30 June.
