Regular Rate
(US $60)
For professionals, INES membership includes a one-year subscription to Engineering Studies at the discounted, at-cost rate of US $45 (versus the normal individual rate that can be four times this amount), as well as a US $15 annual fee to cover INES’ operating expenses related to publishing, web hosting, and member services.

Discounted Rate
(US $10-$45)
For students, retirees, those on reduced income, and scholars from non-OECD countries, join or renew on a sliding scale. The at-cost rate of $45 includes a one-year subscription to Engineering Studies. The below-cost rate of $25 includes the journal pending availability of support from supporting/sponsoring members. The organization can also be joined without the journal subscription on a self-assessed, sliding scale of $10, $15, or $20.

Supporting ($100) or Sponsoring Member ($175) Those wishing to step up their support for INES can join at the Supporting ($100) or Sponsoring levels ($175), each of which includes a one-year subscription to Engineering Studies. The additional resources provided by Supporting and Sponsoring members helps expand the reach and impact of INES, including by subsidizing journal subscriptions for those who join the organization at the discounted membership rate.
