>>> Changed online accessibility of Myrmecol. News: [as of 29 May 2014]
This is to inform you about changes in the online accessibility of Myrmecological News for users without individual and/or institutional subscription. These changes became necessary because of pdf reader programs that ignore the original Adobe pdf-file rights management and thus allow the production of paper copies from pdf files that are non-printable when using Adobe software.
Thus, from now on, …
… the abstracts of all contributions are displayed directly on a contribution’s page and are freely accessible.
… the pdf files of all contributions are printable (i.e., the non-printable versions have been discarded), and for access a registration is necessary.
… each registered user is endowed with five printable pdf files for free download, without time limit; after that, subscription is necessary. Individual subscriptions and institutional subscriptions are available for EUR 35 and EUR 350 for 12 months, respectively, and facilitate unlimited downloads of the entire Myrmecological News online content.
Publications designated as FREE continue, of course, being accessible to everyone, and nothing has changed for users that have already subscribed to Myrmecological News. The new policy will warrant that our non-profit journal does not need to levy page charges for Palearctic and general myrmecological contributions and can continue with the very moderate page charges for other contributions.
