What is a product?
One product equates to 1 evidence-based program (EBP), 1 dataset, or 1 capacity-building tool which you subscribe to for subsequent access in your online account or (for an additional fee) have a hard copy shipped to you. Please note that only EBPs and datasets can be shipped. Capacity-building tools are online only.
What is a user?
One user equates to 1 person with 1 email.
How do I find a product I am looking for?
If you know the specific name of the product (or the name of its developer), type the product's or developer's name in the search bar at the top-center of the home page. Click Enter and the "hit" product(s) will appear on the screen for you to select/subscribe/purchase.
If you want to browse the collection for whether it has products that meet your current needs, you can use the Browse/Filter or Search features.
Browse and Filter: From the top panel of the homepage, click Browse Products. You can then use the filters on the left menu bar to filter the collection by product type, topics, and/or target population.
Search: Keyword searches are done in the search bar at the top-center of the homepage. Type in your search terms directly. To do a Boolean search, the operators (AND, OR, NOT) should be in all caps, e.g., "unplanned AND pregnancy"; or "contraception OR contraceptives OR contraceptive". Search terms can also be entered without a Boolean operator. A search for "unwanted pregnancy" will yield the same result as "unwanted OR pregnancy". If needed, a more complex search can be requested using brackets. The search algorithm will start executing from the innermost brackets outward.
What is an individual subscription plan?
Individual subscription plans include a single user. You can choose how many products you would like to subscribe to.
What is a group subscription plan?
Group subscription plans include an administrator and different numbers of users (1 user = 1 email). The account administrator will enter and manage these emails on their log-in. If a user leaves the group, another user may be substituted. There is a cap to the number of substitutions you can make in one year. A group chooses how many products they want to subscribe to as well.
