The September 2010 (37.6) issue of Nestor is now available as a free download.

This is the first issue under the new publication model for Nestor. The remaining 2010 issues will be made available after the corresponding print issues have been mailed.  We encourage subscribers to switch to this free digital format for 2011, instead of continuing to pay to receive paper copies.

Nestor will be transitioning to free digital download.

To continue receiving paper issues, subscription rates per volume (9 issues) in 2011 will be as follows:

U.S. $33

Canada/Mexico $38

Overseas $43

We regret this large price increase, caused by the anticipated loss of bulk printing and mailing prices.  We urge Nestor subscribers to switch to the free download.
