Development of TAIR was funded by 3 consecutive National Science Foundation (NSF) grants spanning a period of 14 years from 1999 to 2013. Over this period of time, TAIR was available free of charge to the scientific community. In response to the phasing out of NSF funding for TAIR, TAIR transitioned to subscription support. We established a nonprofit entity, Phoenix Bioinformatics, to oversee TAIR and develop a sustainable business model based on subscription revenues.

We began requiring academic researchers to have subscriptions for TAIR access on April 1, 2014.

We have over 18,000 registered users worldwide, and our subscriber base is always growing.

Academic researchers have relied on TAIR for almost two decades, and we aim to keep TAIR sustainable as long as there is a need for the resource.

Give your faculty what they need and support TAIR today!

Our institutional subscriptions provide access via IP address validation and are based on TAIR usage.

Annual subscription prices are based on previous usage of TAIR by each academic or nonprofit institution. The highest usage institutions are classified as Tier 1, with Tier 2, 3, and 4 following in decreasing usage accordingly. Please contact us for your institution's pricing classification.

An institutional subscription provides unlimited, unrestricted access to TAIR regardless of Tier level.

An institution's pricing Tier is determined by Phoenix Bioinfomatics based on previous usage. A subscription grants unlimited usage to said institution for the licensed period. Because of this, there is not an option to choose the Tier level as it is pre-determined. Please contact us for your institution's Tier level.

Multi-year subscriptions provide overall price stability and eliminate extra time and effort each year:

## Two Types of Multi-Year Subscriptions

We have two types of multi-year subscriptions: Paid Annually and Prepaid.

Paid Annually subscriptions cap your price increase for future years, and you would be billed automatically at the start of each year. Prepaid subscriptions keep your fee locked in for future years, but you pay the full amount for all years up front.

You can choose 2, 3, 4, or 5 years.

## Tier 1

Paid Annually: Pay each year's amount at the beginning of the subscription period, with no (0%) price increase each year.

Prepaid: Pay the full amount for all years at the beginning of the subscription period, with a 3% discount from this year's pricing.

The following are examples of pricing for 3 and 5 years, but you can choose 2, 3, 4, or 5 years.

If you were to choose Paid Annually:

5 years: You'd pay $7795 at the start of the first subscription period, and each year after. So the total you would pay over the course of 5 years would be $38975

If you were to choose Prepaid:

3 years: You'd pay $22683 now, but not pay again for 3 years

5 years: You'd pay $37806 now, but not pay again for 5 years

As a policy to keep our pricing as transparent as possible, we do not offer discounts on an individual basis.

However, we do offer a discount if two or more institutions subscribe at once in a single consortium subscription. If you are interested in this option, please contact us, as well as the librarians at the other interested institutions, so we can begin discussing your options.

Off-campus access is included in our institutional subscription pricing through your institution's IP-based proxy servers. Unfortunately, we do not support single-sign-on technology at this time.

Many of our subscribers use EZ-Proxy for their off-campus access.
