ASPB Journals - Online Access Nomination Form

Free Journal Access for High Schools and Public Libraries in the United States
Nominations MUST be completed by an ASPB member.

The Society will provide complimentary access to The Plant Cell and Plant Physiology to interested public libraries and public or private high schools in the United States. ASPB encourages members to nominate teachers or librarians of their outreach network so they can collaboratively use the journals to:

  • further general scientific understanding;
  • infuse science curriculum with timely, vetted information; and
  • inspire student research.

ASPB members must nominate the library or school staff to initiate access. Once nominated by an ASPB member, high school and public library personnel will be granted access by accepting Terms & Conditions and setting up a user name and password.

International access may be considered at a later time. Any such expansion would be in keeping with how ASPB supports initiatives to make journals freely available in much of the developing world.

Journal Access Nomination is as easy as 1-2-3!

  1. Consider teachers or librarians in your outreach network and community who can make good use of the journals. Ideally, select someone with whom you can have an ongoing collaborative connection.
  2. Complete this Nomination Form
  3. Watch for an email from ASPB with the journal access information. Send this to your nominee so he/she can complete the process.

Your efforts will foster interest in plant biology among students, parents, teachers, and others in your community. Thank you for taking advantage of this offer from the Society.
