Membership is open to anyone with an appropriate university affiliation, including a university email address. However, exceptions are possible at the discretion of the Trustees. If you are a member of the international community of researchers working in the history, philosophy and foundations of physics and do not have a university email address, feel free to contact us to request an exception.

Our rates are priced to be as inclusive as possible. We give low-income members of the community the opportunity to join at very low rates, while allowing members that enjoy institutional research allowances to support the Society and journal at an appropriate rate.

If our rates are a burden for you, please contact us to explain your situation. Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis.
