MCSP, MSMA Dr Greg Whyte PhD, BSc (Hons) Welcome S student product in conjunction with the and we will be launching a sport

APR 2012

So what’s new this month? In January we launched an online student product in conjunction with the Society of Sports Therapy

e will be launching a sportEX-branded version in conjunction with the new payment facilities on the website, due for launch in April. Without going geek, this basically means more options and control over payment methods, the ability to top-up or cut-down existing subscriptions easily and at any time instead of only at renewal time, and much more flexibility around how you pay by offering the choice to make smaller, more frequent payments, instead of the traditional annual payment. We know times are tough and our goal is to give you as much flexibility and control as we can over your subscription and how you pay for it. I know this may sound counter-commercial but I would resent it if a company made me feel trapped, and I suspect you guys would feel the same, so I’m putting my trust in the quality of our journal as the reason you subscribe, not the fact we’ve locked you in payment-wise!
