Individual subscriptions

An annual subscription to the Journal of Liberal History costs £25.00 (£15.00 unwaged) for individuals in the UK, and £35.00 (£25.00 unwaged) for subscribers with addresses outside the UK. This includes membership of the Liberal Democrat History Group unless you inform us otherwise. We also welcome donations towards our publishing and research work.

Old issues of the Journal are available online, but the most recent ten issues are only available to online subscribers. An online subscription allowing access to the most recent ten issues costs £45.00. Online subscribers will be sent a password (changed each year) for access to the protected area of this site, and will also receive printed copies of each new Journal.

Our subscription year runs from 1 October to 30 September and includes four issues (published mid-September, mid-January, mid-April and mid-July). Subscribers receive all issues of the Journal published during the subscription year, whenever they initially subscribe, and will be asked to renew from the following October. Anyone subscribing between 1 July and 1 September will receive the summer and autumn issues, plus all of the following subscription year’s four issues. Anyone subscribing between 1 September and 1 December will receive the autumn issue, plus all of the following subscription year’s four issues.

You do not have to be a member of the Liberal Democrats to join the History Group.
