1. 2017 Price and Conditions of Sale

IPMA-USA members in good standing (not expired) may subscribe to the International Journal of Project Management (a.k.a. the IPMA Journal and the IJoPM) at the special-discount IPMA member price.

Member subscribers receive the printed version of the IPMA Journal. Universities have access to the electronic versions, with access to back issues. This is based on the publisher's policies and long-standing practices.

The 2017 IPMA-USA member price is US $92, a discount of over 70% compared the publisher’s price for an individual subscription. Note that this reflects a minor publisher increase in costs over the 2015 subscription. IPMA-USA does not treat IJoPM as a profit center, instead, falling short (by a bit) of covering our full costs.

Please note that:            

  • Journal subscriptions are optional; they are not included with IPMA-USA dues.
  • Subscriptions are based on a calendar year and include any back-issues for that year (no partial subscriptions).
  • Cancellations for the unfulfilled part of the current year must be in writing and received by IPMA-USA by 15 March of the current subscription year (no cancellations after 15 March).
  • If you do cancel within the cancellation period, then IPMA-USA issues any refund due by check, regardless of your original payment method.
