Professional Membership

To ensure access for all political science scholars from all income levels and career-stages, membership dues for professionals 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 $100,000+ $210
Annual income $60,000 - $99,999 $174
Annual income $50,000 - $59,999 $149
Annual income up to $49,999 $120
 
 

1 Year Membership with PRINT Subscription

The 1 Year Print Membership includes a print subscription to the American Journal of Political Science (AJPS). In addition to four issues of the AJPS delivered quarterly over the course of the twelve-month membership, those who select a 1 Year Print Membership are also granted access to current and past issues of the journal online. Please note that an additional shipping fee ($20USD) is automatically charged to print members living outside of the United States.

2 Year Membership with DIGITAL ONLY Subscription

The 2 Year Digital Membership is an entirely online option which includes digital access to current and past issues of the American Journal of Political Science (no printed materials). The twenty-four month digital membership demonstrates a significant savings for those who do not require print copies of the journal. The 2 Year Digital Membership is the same rate as the 1 Year Print Membership with no additional fees for those living outside of the United States.
