FAQ - Frequently asked questions

Membership

  1. Please email the changes to treasurer@iasa-web.org if possible quoting your membership number. Your membership number is shown on membership renewal invoices and in the details under 'My account' on the IASA website when you are logged in.

    IASA uses your postal address to send members the IASA journal, renewal reminders and other postal communications.

  2. If you change your email address, please log into the IASA site using your old email address and visit the ‘My account’ page (linked from the left hand menu). Click the edit tab. Then you can change your personal details, including your new email address, password, user name, etc.

    If you change your email address again in future, please remember to update your online account details so that you can continue to log in and IASA can continue to keep in touch with you.

    If your old email account is closed and you have forgotten your password to log in, ask the IASA webmanager to change your email.

  3. A membership number is assigned to you by the IASA membership officer when you join IASA.

    The easiest way to find your number is to click on the 'My account' link on the left margin of this website. The link is only available when you are logged into the website.

    Your membership number is also shown on the membership renewal notices sent by IASA to members when their renewals are due.

  4. To pay or renew your membership of IASA, see http://www.iasa-web.org/membership-payments

IASA journal

  1. 1. Articles should be submitted to the editor for consideration at least two months before published deadlines. If approved for publication, final versions of articles are due no later than the published deadlines.

    2. Soft copy as a .doc file for text should be submitted with minimal formatting.

    3. Illustrations (photographs, diagrams, tables, maps, etc) may be submitted as low resolution files placed in the .doc file or sent separately. Once the article has been accepted for publication, high-resolution copies will be required and should be sent as separate documents.

    4. Use footnotes not endnotes.

    5. References should be listed at the end of the article in alphabetic order and chronologically for each author and should adhere to guidelines of the Chicago Manual of 
Style (http://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/home.html).

    6. Authors are encouraged to submit original research or to develop their conference 
presentations into more detailed accounts and/or arguments for publication in the journal. In principle, articles should be no longer than 5,000 words.

Log in

  1. You need to be member to sign into the IASA website. See http://www.iasa-web.org/membership-categories for the list of member categories that benefit from logging in.

    If you are not a member, consider joining: http://www.iasa-web.org/join-iasa

    If you pay a subscription to IASA as an Individual Supporter, Institutional Supporter or Subscriber, and want to log into the website, consider upgrading to a full Member, by contacting the IASA Treasurer: treasurer@iasa-web.org

    Once you have paid your full Member dues, you will be emailed a user name and password. You can then log in by typing your user name and password into the Member login block on the left margin of this website, and pressing the 'Log in' button. Once you are logged in, this block is replaced by a members' block with links for the exclusive benefit of members.

  2. If you are in the IASA Supporter or Subscriber category, you are not entitled to log in and access the members area of the IASA website.

    To get this benefit, you should upgrade to Individual or Institutional member. For individuals, the upgrade costs only an additional 8 Euros.

    The benefits of the different categories are shown here:
    http://www.iasa-web.org/membership-categories

    1. Click on the "Request new password" link -- this is located below the Password box in the Member login block, on the left margin of this website

    2. Next, enter either your User name or your email address, and then press the "Email new password" button. (Note: your User name is NOT the same as your email address).

    3. If you entered the correct information, you should receive an email within 5 minutes with logging in instructions.

    4. If you do not receive the email, repeat the process but this time enter the user name or email address (whichever of these you did not try the first time). Please also check your spam folder.

    If you still cannot log in? Then please send an explanation of what you tried to do via our contact form: http://www.iasa-web.org/contact

  4. Institutional members may have up to 5 staff sign into the IASA website. If you would like staff at your institution to sign-in to the website, please send their names and email addresses (and if possible your membership number) to webmanager@iasa-web.org

    IASA only provides website logging in accounts for named individuals.

    For a full list of members' benefits, see: www.iasa-web.org/membership-categories

  5. There is no need to log into the webcart or the conference site, which are hosted on separate sites to this main IASA site.

    Please see the other FAQs on this page if you wish to log into the main IASA website, www.iasa-web.org

    IASA Executive Board members may log into the IASA webcart, https://iasa-webcart.org/, or the IASA conference sites, for administrative purposes, by contacting the webmanager.

Payments

  1. The IASA webcart accepts payments for subscriptions, donations, publications orders and conference registrations via these methods:

    • Credit card*
    • PayPal account
    • Bank transfer

    These options are shown at checkout, once you have placed an order.

    *Note that all credit card payments to IASA are redirected to a secure payment page operated by PayPal. If you do not have a PayPal account, choose the "Don't have a PayPal account?" option on the PayPal page.

  2. If you wish to pay by credit card when making a purchase via the IASA webcart, select the PayPal option on the checkout page:

    This will transfer you securely to a PayPal site. You do not need to pay via a PayPal account. To pay directly by credit card, simply select the 'Don't have a PayPal account?' option on the PayPal page (the wording used may vary according to your location).

    Can't find a "Don't have a PayPal account?" option?
    Unfortunately, PayPal does not allow direct credit card payments in all cases. Sometimes it is because of your location, or sometimes PayPal might believe by checking your browser's cookies that you actually own a PayPal account. To fix this, either clear cookies from your browser’s cache (keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+Delete) and restart the purchase; or use a different browser; or make your payment using a different computer altogether.

  3. IASA is not registered for VAT (Value-Added Tax), so it does not have a VAT number.

Website

  1. If you see an error on a web page, or the information provided needs updating, please notify the IASA webmanager via the contact form, including the web address ('URL') of the page concerned.

  2. All IASA members can post their own messages on the IASA forums when logged in. There are public forums that can be read by anyone, and private forums that may only be read by IASA members. New messages posted on the public forums are automatically listed on the website's home page, and forwarded to IASA's Twitter account (over 1,000 followers) and to IASA's Facebook pages, so they reach a wide audience.

    Anyone may also post messages on the IASA listserv, which has over 700 subscribers.

    Members of the IASA Executive Board can also add and edit links, events and blog posts (the 'notice board') on this website.

    To add any other web content to this site, send a message with your suggested text to the IASA webmanager via the contact form. Your images and other media (sounds, videos, formatted documents for download, etc) can also be added by the IASA webmanager, provided that you have the rights to do so.
