SABR members, get your Fall 2013 “Baseball Research Journal” electronically

In a world where legendary magazines such as Newsweek and The Sporting News have gone totally digital, 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 offering its members the opportunity to opt out of receiving the printed version of the Baseball Research Journal.

To opt out of receiving the printed version of the Baseball Research Journal, click here to edit your membership profile.

Scroll to the bottom and select “Receive publications electronically.” Then save your changes.

For those who sign up before October 15, 2013, we’ll be offering the Fall 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 Spring 2013 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.)

You can opt out at any time. If you opt out between now and October 15, 2013, you’ll receive the Fall 2013 edition and future Baseball Research Journals in e-book format.

Please note: If you do nothing, you will continue to receive two print editions of the Baseball Research Journal every year by mail.

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.
