Starting in 2008, you will not be able to purchase to detailed salary and rate reports for a single quarter. In order to receive access to these reports will have to be a regular participant* or purchase access for the entire year.
Regular participants will receive access to the survey in which they participate and those who are members of elephant will receive access to the detailed reports of a second survey. Members of elephant who purchase access to a set of detailed reports will also receive access to detailed reports for a second survey free.
The policy was changed to increase the relative benefit of regular participation and to reward members who provide financial support to the survey.
* Regular participants in the Technical Writer Salary and Rate Surveys are those who participate 4 consecutive quarters. Regular participants in the Freelance Copy Editors Rate Survey are those who participate 2 consecutive quarters.
