Students and faculty at higher education institutions like The American University and Syracuse rely on Pro to be their interdisciplinary resource for real-time, policy-specific reporting.

Here are the two main differences between IP and professional access:

What are customized accounts? 

As a professional access user, each individual person has an account that is fully customizable to meet his/her needs. Each user can select from hundreds of specific topics within each policy area and content types, and receives content solely based on those selections, directly to their inbox, every day.
