Multiple Membership Options Exist
for Political Science Professionals

Print Membership (12-months)

If it’s important to you to have print copies of the American Journal of Political Science (AJPS), please be certain that you select the twelve-month print membership option. With this option, you will receive four issues of the AJPS over the course of your 12-month membership in addition to online access to current and past issues for the duration of your membership. An additional shipping fee ($20USD) is charged to print members living outside of the continental U.S.  

Digital (24-months at the 12-month rate)

If you don’t require print copies of the journal, a twenty-four month digital membership is a great deal. This entirely online option provides members with twenty-four months of online access to current and past issues of the AJPS, for the same price as a one-year print membership, with no additional fees for members outside of the U.S.

  • Members with shipping addresses outside the United States or its territories are automatically charged a $20 foreign postage fee for their AJPS print subscription.  
  • Membership payments are not refundable. 
  • MPSA does not accept purchase orders, wire transfers, or bank transfers as payment. 

To ensure access to membership for persons from all income levels and career-stages, member dues are charged on an income-based sliding scale.  Accurate representation of your income level reflects your commitment to your colleagues and the discipline.  We ask that all professional members, including new and renewing members, determine their dues rate according to the following schedule:

Annual income $200,000 and above
