A note on pricing

Modernist Cultures publishes four issues a year. The editors explain that the journal has gone from strength to strength and receives large numbers of very good submissions.

There is no differential pricing in BAMS; we are keen to encourage membership from around the world. Our aim is to keep the price of online only memberships as low as possible to ensure that BAMS membership remains within reach of as many people as possible. However, BAMS receives significantly less income from online only memberships, and we continue to reflect on how this affects the amount of money we have available to support modernist scholarship, and postgraduates in particular.
