RESNA has made a change in the membership benefit subscription to the Assistive Technology Journal (AT Journal). Members will continue to receive a free, on-line subscription to the AT Journal, as well as free access to the archives, as a membership benefit. 
 
Membership dues have stayed the same for many years.  However, production costs for the AT Journal have continued to increase. As a result, the RESNA Board of Directors has approved a $30.00 annual subscription fee for members who prefer to receive a print version of the AT Journal, starting immediately. This fee will cover 4 print issues a year, which is a bargain. An individual issue of the AT Journal costs $97.00 for on-line access; purchasing one article costs $48.00. 
 
Current members who do not wish to receive printed copies of the AT Journal do not have do anything. Please continue to enjoy your complimentary, full-access subscription on-line. See this webpage for information on how to access the AT Journal. 
 
To “opt in” and receive print issues by mail, please follow the directions below. The deadline is July 28, 2015 to receive payment in order to be included in the August AT Journal mailing. 
 
We’re very proud of the AT Journal. The impact factor, a measure of a journal’s visibility within the academic community, has risen for the fourth straight year. We’re greatly appreciated of the AT Journal Editorial Board, especially Editors-in-Chief Albert Cook, PhD, and Richard Simpson, PhD, ATP, for all of their hard work. 
 
Please note that for those who are part of an organizational membership, a letter has been sent to your organization's contact, and you will need to sign up through your organization. For additional questions, please see this short Q&A. You may also e-mail membership@resna.org or call (703) 524-6686 x310.
