About International Association for Great Lakes Research

IAGLR is a not-for-profit organization. We still need revenues, however, to support the activities of our committees and to facilitate communication among large lakes researchers. These revenues come from three main sources: proceeds of our annual conference, page charges (fees paid by authors of papers to be published in special issues of our journal), and membership dues. Donations also generate revenue for various IAGLR operations. What does IAGLR do with its money? IAGLR's mission is to promote and communicate research on large lakes of the world. In keeping with this mission, our revenues are allocated to three primary purposes. First, we need to cover the costs of producing and distributing the Journal of Great Lakes Research. Second, we pay for the promotion and operating costs for the annual conference. These two activities have been mostly self-funding: page charges from special issues of the journal and member fees pay for the journal, and conference registration fees pay for the conference. Our third purpose has been to provide support for large lakes research in areas of greatest need. In particular, we have given out scholarships and awards to deserving students working on large lakes problems, and we donate journal subscriptions to libraries and institutions in parts of the world where money is especially scarce. The IAGLR Endowment Committee manages funds to finance various association activities. Can I give money to IAGLR?
