In order to lower the threshold for scientists and students from low-income countries to become a RC33-member, the board decided to introduce a differentiation in RC33 membership fees. Similar to an ISA membership, we now distinguish between 3 categories of countries according to the Gross National Income of the economy (see www.worldbank.org or the list on the ISA website). This applies to an RC33-only membership; one may also become a member of RC33 in combination with an ISA-membership, in that case rates apply as presented at the ISA-website.
Also, due to a long term partnership with SAGE and journal Bulletin de Methodologie Sociologique (BMS), starting in 2021 instead of two hard copies of BMS a year all valid members of RC33 will receive full online access both to the latest BMS issues and BMS archive.
For those who become a member of RC33 only, the following rates apply:
- Cat A: €60,- regular and €30,- student. Including full online access to the BMS and BMS archives.
- Cat B: €25,- regular and €12,50,- student. Including full online access to the BMS and BMS archives.
- Cat C: €8,- regular and €4,- student. Including full online access to the BMS and BMS archives.
RC33-membership is valid for 4 calendar years.
We hope that this differentiation in fees will stimulate an increase of new RC33-members from low-income countries.
