Frequently Asked Questions

1. Is the Magazine free?
Firstly, we have digital versions and paper versions (Print-on-demand) of the Magazines. 

The digital versions of our magazine issues are free for the AIN Membership and Professionals only. The good news is we have magazine samples, free for everyone. And from now until May 1st, 2024, anyone who creates a free AIN account, will get access to the full magazine. 

For the Print-on-demand version, everyone can order the paper version that will ship directly to you for a fee, depending on the issue.


2. I am currently a member of the AIN Facebook group or LinkedIn group; doesn't that make me an AIN Member?
No, joining the AIN Facebook Group or any AIN social media group does not make you an AIN Member.

AIN Membership is the formal process for individuals who apply and pay $50 USD (Membership) or $99 USD (Professionals) and maintain it actively without lapse. See our Membership page for details.


3. I downloaded the digital magazine file. Can I share it with my friends?
For the magazine samples, yes, we encourage you to share it with as many friends as possible. 

But for full magazine versions, we recommend non-members, create an AIN account for free and receive free access to the full magazines until May 1st, 2024, or buy a digital copy at MagCloud, for $2.99 USD. It is a great way to support the project. We truly appreciate it. 


4. How does Print-On-Demand (POD) work?
It is similar to how you shop online. After placing a POD order, MagCloud will print, pack and mail to your address and handle any customer service. The organization doesn’t see or touch physical products but has tested its service, and all worked great.


5. How much does the paper version (Print-on-demand) cost?
The first issue of AIM is $14.60 USD plus mailing and tax (if applicable). 

The second issue of AIM is $17.80 USD plus mailing, and tax (if applicable). 

You will get the digital version for free when you order the paper version via MagCloud.
