ICRP Offers Free Trial Access to Commission Publications


ICRP and Elsevier Science Ltd have announced an offer to make ICRP publications available, at no cost, to IRPA Associate Society members via the Internet. The trail period will be six months. Since ICRP publications before 1995 are not yet in electronic form, they are not yet available. However, these publications are being processed and may become available before the trial period ends. After the trial period, the intention is that members will be offered continued access at a significant discount compared to the standard price.

ICRP has extended its appreciation to IRPA and Elsevier Science Ltd for their co-operation and efforts to implement this important opportunity for professionals all over the world to get direct access to information, recommendations, and advice from ICRP.

All members of IRPA Associated Societies are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity. In addition to the obvious scientific benefit, continued access after the trial period can be offered at favourably low cost if there is frequent use during the free trial period.

This offer is ONLY available through your IRPA Associated Society. Details are available through the officers of their Societies. The Health Physics Society has already contacted its members via Email. The contact details are listed here. This is also the place to go for those who may not yet be Society members and would like to find out more about their national or regional IRPA Associated Society
