Join the Society for the Social History of Medicine
It is easy to join the Society for the Social History of Medicine. All you have to do is to subscribe at the appropriate membership rate to its journal, Social History of Medicine, published by Oxford University Press (OUP).
Membership forms are available from OUP. Just select your subscription category and click on the amount for a printable PDF order form. Don't worry that these forms are for the Journal rather than the Society: as long as you subscribe at the appropriate rate you will automatically join the SSHM. For a form please visit the OUP website.
It usually takes about 4-6 weeks for OUP to process applications, after which you will receive a letter welcoming you to the SSHM.
SSHM membership rate 2012: Full members, £43.00/ US $86.00 / €64.00; students, unwaged and retired, £23.00 / US $45.00 / €34.00. OUP offers developing countries free (or greatly reduced) online access to the journal.
If you have any concerns about your application please contact the Membership Secretary Dr Catherine Cox: School of History and Archives, University College Dublin, John Henry Newman Building, Belfield, Dublin 4, Ireland
