As a rule, the registration fee for attending an ISHS symposium includes a copy of the Acta Horticulturae proceedings (either hardcopy or e-Acta online).
As soon as an Acta Horticulturae volume is published, ISHS Secretariat is taking care of mailing a complimentary copy to each individual symposium participant who is entitled to receive a free copy.
Check with the symposium convener for possible exceptions to the rule because in some cases discounted registrations such as e.g. single-day or student registrations may not include the right to receive a copy of the proceedings.
The ISHS Secretariat obtains the distribution list for complimentary Acta Horticulturae copies from the symposium convener. The mailing list consequently features contact details provided when registering for the symposium.
Each participant is responsible for providing symposium convener with accurate and complete address details and to notify symposium convener of changes if any. ISHS cannot be held responsible for non-delivery in case of wrong or incomplete addresses of e-mail address changes or other issues in receiving email messages.
Unless the symposium convener explicity opted for the e-Acta online access solution for symposium participants, ISHS does not provide authors or symposium delegates with electronic copies of the published Acta Horticulturae paper.
Authors are encouraged to take ISHS membership which comes, along with a long list of other benefits, with free article downloads; for those who do not have an active ISHS membership but still want to download articles, each Acta Horticulturae article is readily available for download on a pay-per-view basis instead.
