All Membership categories include online subscription to the society’s quarterly Newsletter.

Online Journal access provides internet access via Elsevier’s site to the monthly journal Animal Behaviour, including archives.

Paper Journal subscription is a 12 month subscription to the monthly journal Animal Behaviour. Subscription will normally begin with the next available issue and continue for 12 months.

Note:

  • If you order the print journal, it typically arrives within 6-8 weeks.
  • As for the online journal, please allow 2-6 weeks before activating your online account to ScienceDirect. We typically report new memberships at the start of each month and they are loaded into ScienceDirect within a week or ten days after that date. ScienceDirect is an independent third party, with their own authorization scheme, and not directly associated with the Animal Behavior Society.

Refund policy:

There are no refunds for membership dues. However, for those with a paper subscription of the journal, difficulties can be resolved with the ABS Central Office on a case by case basis.

Future Changes:

ABS reserves the right to change this policy in any manner at any time without prior notice. If we make material changes to our refund policy, these changes will be posted on this page.
