Important note – Business/Industry vs Personal
If you are in employed by a Pharma/Biotech company or wish to use our content in support of your work or a business/commercial use such as fund management, then a “titanium” business user subscription will be required.
All subscriptions are for a named, “designated user.” Access cannot be shared with others, and all readers of BSB content are required to have their own individual access and login ID. If a “titanium” subscription is purchased by a company, then it can be transferred should the “designated user” leave or change roles during the subscription period.
Think about it like going to a scientific or medical conference. If you are in “industry” you typically expect to pay more for a meeting registration than if you are a “researcher” irrespective of who may be paying. Another way to think about this is it’s like purchasing software, you pay more for a license to use software in a business as opposed to at home, even though the program maybe identical. A good rule of thumb: if a company is paying for your BSB sub, you are expensing it or you are using the content to support what you do in your day job, then you will most likely need a “titanium” business user subscription rather than a personal “gold” subscription, even if you are the only user or you are paying for it yourself.
We do offer multi-user discounts for companies or organisations that have a team or group who wish to obtain access. Irrespective of the subscription level purchased, no post can be shared within a company/ organisation or with others without payment of an additional fee either in the form of a share license or a permissions fee for a reprint.
Please contact us if you are in any doubt as to the subscription level applicable or if you would like a quote for a multi-user subscription or the cost to share a post or generate a reprint.
Important note – if in Media, Comms, PR & Consulting
If you work in communications, PR, media or consulting then you need to contact us first to discuss how you will use our content, and our permission is required for any purchase.
PR & Comms: We have sadly been burnt by PR folk sharing our content widely, so if you work in communications. PR or a related agency and would like access to our content, we now require the purchase of a multi-user subscription that will cover everyone in the company.
If a PR company facilitates an interview, as a matter of routine, they will receive a courtesy copy of the related post we write.
We also offer the ability to purchase access to an individual post. The cost depends on the nature of the post and the extent to which it will be shared.
Consulting: If you work for a consulting company and would like to have access to our content either as a resource for projects, a specific engagement or for your own education or that of a team member e.g. come up to speed on an area, we will need to discuss and understand how you will use our content, how many people within the team or company will have access to it, and what might be shared with client(s).
Media: While we are flattered that some of our media colleagues would like to purchase a subscription to help them with their coverage of conferences we attend, in the competitive media landscape that we live in, we really have no interest in having our story ideas, insights or content repurposed by other outlets, even with attribution, so this is not something we typically allow.
