Are your services free?

We have a vast range of resources available without charge on the website, and we are always willing to brief researchers and journalists. None of this is ‘free’ in the sense that it does cost us time and money to provide, of course. We therefore need to replenish our resources by charging research and media appearance fees when that is possible and appropriate. Some of our staff and associates also rely upon freelance income for their livelihood. We hope that those using our services will respect this. We are strictly limited in our own ability to pay contributors at the moment, but seek to do so wherever possible.
