Payment Options

There are two ways to access the full articles on this site. One is to purchase a subscription. The other is to purchase individual articles using a system of credits.

Subscription Option

Subscriptions of three months, six months and one year are available. If you think you will want to read most of the articles on the site then a subscription will be the least expensive and most convenient way to get access. With a subscription you also have full access to the 15 years of archived stories on the site. Having easy access to the archives is useful because in many current stories we link to earlier stories that you may want to reference. If you use the credit system additional credits will be deducted from your account every time you go to an earlier story.
Subscribers receive an email with a link whenever we post a new story (usually daily).

Subscription Seat Licenses

If you would like to distribute the information in any story to more than one other person you need to purchase a Seat License. Seat license purchasers may distribute the information either electronically or in printed form to a fixed number of people in their organization.. If you are interested in a Seat License please contact us at for rates.

Credit Option

The credit system is designed for those who are only interested in reading a few stories, or who wish to test out the offering before making a subscription commitment. If you expect to be reading more than a few stories the subscription option is the better value. Stories normally cost 1, 2 or 3 credits depending on their length and the work required in gathering the information. Credits are good for one year from the date of purchase.

Once purchased the number of remaining credits in your account will appear in the upper right corner of the home page each time you log in. Each time you read a story for the first time the appropriate number of credits will be deducted from this total. Once you have purchased a story you can come back and refer to it as often as you like for no additional charge.

Credit purchasers receive an email every Saturday with links and brief descriptions of each story published during the week.
