ISTR Membership Rates 2020/2021

ISTR Membership runs on a calendar year, January - December.

Below are the ISTR membership categories and dues. When you join, you will receive all member privileges and publications for the period up to your join date, and will receive the publications on a regular basis for the remainder of your membership year.

All members receive the Voluntas journal online. Members have the option of also selecting to receive a print copy of the journal. 

Please note: Our publisher, Springer, will inform you by e-mail when a new issue of VOLUNTAS has been published online. You will receive a FREE, automated Table of Content (ToC) Alert message for each issue of VOLUNTAS, containing a direct link to each article, the name of the author(s), the DOI and the page numbers. You can, at any time, easily opt out at the bottom of each Table of Content Alert message.
