“Titanium” license applies if you work in Business, Industry & Finance
If you work in industry e.g. you’re employed by a Pharma/Biotech company, work in finance e.g. fund management or work in a “for-profit” business then a minimum of a Titanium license is required.
All licenses are based on a named, “designated user.” Access cannot be shared with others, and all readers of BSB content are required to have their own individual login ID. If a “titanium” license is purchased by a company for an individual, 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 or someone in academia or a non-profit.
As you can see from the pricing table do offer discounted multi-user licenses for companies or organisations that have a team or group who wish to obtain access. Irrespective of the license 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.
“Gold” license applies if you are in academia or work for a non-profit organization
We do have academic researchers and medical doctors from round the world as subscribers to BSB. Not everyone can get to every meeting, and the field is moving at such a fast pace the textbooks are out of date by the time they are written, particularly in immuno-oncology. If you are in academia or work for a non-profit organization then the discounted gold license applies. Please note we reserve the right to verify the eligibility of anyone who wishes to subscribe this, and we do expect people to be upfront as to who they are.
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, Med Ed, Comms, PR & Consulting
If you work in communications, medical education, 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, at our sole discretion, 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 & Med Ed: If you work for a consulting or medical education 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) or others. It is unlikely that we will grant access just for one person, and we would expect the purchase of a multi-user license, a clear definition on the scope of use, and what the risk of sharing with non-subscribers might be.
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.
Any decision is made on a case by case basis and we reserve the right to decline any purchase at our sole discretion.
