All of Philica’s standard services are completely free, provided as a service to the academic community (and, indeed, to the public). However, it costs us real money to run Philica — website hosting, programming, admin etc. — and so we are really grateful if people make donations, however small.
We use the well-known and trustworthy PayPal service to accept payments — Click on the button below and you can choose how much to give and how you want to pay: almost all forms of payment are accepted and you will be brought back to this site afterwards.
Registered users will get a donation icon next to their name (e.g., ) to show everyone that they have supported the free exchange of academic information — don’t forget to give us your username when making your donation. Other donors will be credited by name on our Hall of Fame.
We are also happy to hear from companies and organizations who wish to discuss sponsorship/advertising opportunities — contact us here.
