The discounted Gold 1 year license rate is now only available to individuals in academia or working for non-profit organizations and no content can be shared with others or distributed by any means including email. To share any content requires the purchase of a separate sharing license, payment of a permissions fee or purchase of a multi-user subscription.
We now require all those working in industry, pharma/biotech companies or in finance related roles to purchase at the Titanium license rate, this applies even if you’ve previously been a Gold level subscriber.
You can find more information about current rates and available subscriptions on our pricing page.
Important – we may require you to verify your eligibility for the discounted Gold license rate. Feel free to send us a message if you have any questions about whether you qualify or not.
To qualify for the discounted Gold license rate, the non-profit, academia setting has to be where your main employment activity is, so if you are an MD in industry or finance who does an occasional clinic, then you would not qualify on that basis.
If you have a team or group who would like to read BSB, we do offer a discount for multi-user subscriptions, but please note that all subscribers to BSB have to be designated and are named users with their own individual login ID.
To complete your purchase on a mobile device (iPad/iPhone), you may need to disable any pop-up blocker in Safari or other browser. We require users to have a strong password with a minimum of 12 characters that includes a mix of numbers, symbols, capital letters and lower-case letters.
If your payment transaction is successful, you will receive instant access to BSB, and an automated email receipt from us from our payment processor, Stripe. If you don’t receive this email, then your purchase has failed for some reason. Once you have logged into BSB, you can also download a more detailed receipt.
Our policies do change over time, so please do review them even if you are renewing or have had BSB access before.
Effective November 2020: Please note that you are no longer allowed to access BSB using VPNs that have a high risk of being used for fraudulent activity, even if you are using them legitimately, or via ISPs that anonymize identity or location.
