SABR members, receive the Baseball Research Journal in e-book format
In a world where legendary magazines such as Newsweek and The Sporting News went totally digital starting in 2013, SABR is bridging both worlds.
As an organization that prides itself on maintaining the best of its past, but also constantly striving to move forward and take advantage of exciting new opportunities and technologies, SABR is now offering its members the opportunity to opt out of receiving the printed version of the Baseball Research Journal.
Scroll to the bottom and select "Receive publications electronically." Then save your changes.
For those who signed up before March 1, 2013, we'll be offering the Spring 2013 Baseball Research Journal in e-book format for those who are enjoying reading on their Kindles, Nooks, iPads or other devices. (Did you know that the Fall 2012 BRJ is already available in e-book form? Try it out now by clicking here to download your copy in EPUB, MOBI/Kindle or PDF format.)
But you can opt out at any time. If you opt out between March 1 and November 1, 2013, you'll receive the Fall 2013 edition and future Baseball Research Journals in e-book format.
Many of our SABR members are heavy readers, who have accumulated many books and periodicals over the years. Some members, whose bookshelves are near capacity, have asked us if they could still receive our stimulating content without the burden of a hard copy. By offering this totally voluntary option of receiving only an electronic version of the BRJ, we are keeping in step with the changing marketplace for printed publications, while accommodating any members who wish to have more "portability" of the written material our members produce. Furthermore, by not printing and mailing more than 6,000 copies each month, SABR would use the money it saves through printing and mailing costs and apply it to new research opportunities; this move also helps us to be more environmentally friendly.
Also starting this summer, The National Pastime — our annual convention journal, which will be considerably larger in 2013 than any previous edition — will be offered as a souvenir to members attending SABR 43 in Philadelphia. All other members will have the opportunity to download a free e-version in PDF, Kindle or iPad/Nook format, read the entire publication online at SABR.org, or purchase a print-on-demand version at a special discounted member price. Again, this will make it easier for members to digitally collect and save TNP publications in the years to come. By publishing larger versions of the TNP (up to 32 pages longer in some instances), more SABR members will have a chance to have their work published and SABR members will have the opportunity to read more top-level articles every summer.
