Discounted Membership Criteria:
- To be eligible for the Discounted Membership rate, the applicant must reside, as their predominant residence, in a country listed that year in one of the three columns headed “Least Developed Countries”, “Other Low-Income Countries”, or “Lower Middle Income Countries and Territories” on the DAC List of ODA Recipients, listed here.
- The DAC List of ODA Recipients is updated annually. If a country is promoted from the three categories listed in #1 above, the Discounted Membership rate will not be applicable upon the next annual renewal by members residing in that country. Subsequent discounts will only be applicable if the country re-enters the categories defined in #1 above.
- Discounted Membership, based on the categories defined in #1 above, will include full on-line access to the International Journal of Phytoremediation for as long as the membership remains valid.
- Student Membership rates are not eligible for this discount, even if the recipient resides in a country defined in #1 above.
- In exception to #1-#4, the IPS Board of Directors reserves the right to award the Discounted Membership rate to any applicant judged to be in a situation where the cost of membership would be prohibitive.
