After I pay, how can I access PLAmetrics?

Can I be invoiced?

  • Yes.  You have the option of selecting an invoice or to pay online using a credit card, either way you will receive immediate access to PLAmetrics.

What are the license terms?

If I pay online will I receive a receipt/invoice?

I’m not sure if my institution submitted data to PLA, how do I know if I’m eligible for the special pricing?

  • If you’re not sure, then please answer Yes to the questions “Did your institution contribute data to PLA?” and/or "Did you previously subscribe to the PLDS online database?" and then locate your institution from the drop-down list.  If your institution is not listed you are not eligible for the discounted price. 

What data is available with my PLAmetrics subscription?

  • The FY2015 PLA data is available with your PLAmetrics subscription.  Historical PLA (FY2002-FY2014) data is also available.
