IPVM will provide limited discounts or scholarships for those in academia, journalism, and non-profits, plus those who are top IPVM commenters or hold multiple IPVM certifications. Contact us to discuss eligibility.

We will not provide discounts to corporations or government organizations. Instead, our emphasis will be on providing value to organizations in their decision making.

Prioritizing Research Requests From Subscribers

Research Service subscribers will get priority for recommending research topics. This will allow us to publish more focused Research Service reports, increasing value to more subscribers.

We encourage those interested to share their top priorities for research coverage.

Goal: Triple Our Research Output In Three Years

Our goal is to triple the amount of annual research we release in the next three years, as the Research Service will allow us to do more in-depth work and cover more segments. In this way, we can provide a far more valuable service to subscribers.

No Marketing Allowed

Consistent with IPVM's longstanding policy, no IPVM Research may be used for marketing, and no organization can hire or subscribe to IPVM for marketing purposes.

Barred For PRC And Russia

IPVM will not provide the Research Service to companies based in or controlled by The People's Republic of China (PRC) or the Russian Federation, regardless of where those company's employees are located.

IPVM shall continue to fairly and accurately test products from all countries.
