Become a member of ISKO! Benefits of membership include:
Regular membership fees per calendar year are as follows:
An additional payment of EUR 20.00 entitles any member to receive the journal in print (as well as having free online access).
Payment "per calendar year" means that if you join or renew at any time from January to September (inclusive) your subscription covers you until December of the same year. If you become a member for the first time in the period October - December, however, payment of one annual fee will be accepted to cover your membership right through to December of the following year.
Joining Procedure and Policy
To join ISKO you must apply to one of the regional Chapters, which generally accept payment in the currency applicable locally. You may choose which Chapter to join, independently of your own nationality, language or location. For example, residents of Switzerland may choose to join the French or the German Chapter, or the Canada/US chapter if they so wish. Similarly residents of France can make any of those same choices, or the Maghreb or the Brazil Chapter or any other. All the necessary contact details can be found on our Chapters page.
A membership discount applies to developing countries (according to the IMF list ⇗, cfr. Wikipedia ⇗), and eligibility is judged by the country in which the applicant lives, not on the basis of Chapter choice. Thus a resident of Kenya who joins the UK Chapter is entitled to the developing country discount, but someone living in France who joins the Maghreb Chapter is not.
All Chapter administrations do their best to welcome ISKO members from any country who want to participate in their activities. Generally it is possible for a member to be on the mailing list of any number of Chapters, while paying membership fees via only one.
Prof. Amos David (ISKO Treasurer)
While membership fees are collected by the Chapter administrations, only a proportion is retained for use by the Chapter. The larger portion is remitted to the international secretariat to finance production of Knowledge Organization and other international activities. Chapter Treasurers should send such payments to the following International bank account:
