Academic Tier Qualification

This page contains the Nested Knowledge policy regarding whether a user qualifies for Academic Tier pricing ($19.95/mo/user), or whether an Organization qualifies for having all users qualify for Academic Tier pricing.

Who Qualifies for Academic Tier?

To qualify for Academic Tier, a user must be one of the following Qualifications:

  1. A current, active student in a Bachelor's, Masters, MD/DO, or Doctorate program;
  2. A current, active graduate or post-doctoral researcher at a university, college, or other educational institution; or
  3. A current, active faculty member at a university, college, or other educational institution.

To qualify for Organization-wide Academic Tier pricing, the Organization in question must grant licensed seats only to users who qualify as Academic Tier.

What is different about Academic Tier functionality?

Academic Tier users have access to the same functionality as the standard Business Tier. However, the only support offered as part of the Academic Tier is technical assistance; research support or training may be provided at the sole discretion of Nested Knowledge, but is otherwise unavailable to Academic Tier users.

What restrictions are there on Academic Tier use?

Use of the Nested Knowledge software by Academic Tier users and Organizations is restricted to Academic Purposes, defined as:

  • Non-commercial use, meaning use wherein a fee is not charged and the purpose is not the sale of a good or service, and the use or activity is not intended to produce a profit; and
  • Educational use, meaning use for the purpose of education, teaching, distance learning, private study and/or personal research, or Research use, meaning use for the purpose of publishing, presenting, or collating scientific evidence.

By signing up as an Academic Tier user, you represent and warrant that you meet the Qualifications as an Academic Tier user, and that you will use the Nested Knowledge software solely for Academic Purposes.

Nested Knowledge reserves the right to revoke Academic Tier pricing for any user or Organization that, in Nested Knowledge's sole judgment, does not meet the Qualifications or has used the Nested Knowledge software for non-Academic Purposes.
