Mitchell Hammer, Ph.D., President of IDI, LLC offers a special price of $5.50 for the purchase of the Intercultural Development Inventory® (IDI®) for selected Ph.D. dissertations using the IDI® specifically as part of the Ph.D. dissertation research. To date, we have provided financial support for the use of over 10,000 IDIs® in 66 Ph.D. completed dissertations.
Instructions for Applying for the Ph.D. Discount
If you are planning to use the IDI® in your Ph.D. Dissertation, you can apply for this special price. Here is what is needed:
- Successful completion of the IDI Qualifying Seminar. (If you are not currently a Qualified Administrator, you will find information about the seminars at our website, www.idiinventory.com, the "Qualifying Registration" tab.)
- Submit a copy of the dissertation proposal, indicating as clearly as possible how the IDI® is going to be used.
- Students should make reasonable efforts to obtain funding for the purchase of the IDI® prior to submitting their dissertation proposal for consideration for the IDI® discount. If funding is not obtained, please indicate in an e-mail to IDI, LLC the efforts made to obtain funding for the purchase of the IDI® through your institution and the outcome.
- If the proposal is accepted and you have made reasonable efforts to obtain outside funding, Dr. Hammer will notify you by e-mail that your request has been accepted. Please note that only a selected number of Ph.D. dissertation discount awards are made each year.
If you are granted the special price of $5.50 in the purchase of the IDI®, you must agree to the following:
- No items from the IDI® (except those written up as sample items found in the IJIR 2003 article) can be reprinted anywhere in the dissertation (this includes appendices). This is because the IDI® is a proprietary instrument. What people have done is to simply indicate items by number (see the IJIR article for an example) in various statistical tables.
- You must agree to state in the acknowledgement section that your dissertation was supported by Mitchell R. Hammer, Ph.D., IDI, LLC.
