ISKO is an international body with chapters in many different countries and regions. You normally join ISKO through one of these chapters, in our case ISKO UK. ISKO UK fees are paid per calendar year and for 2018, after allowing for  bank transaction charges and a drop in the exchange rate,  they are closely aligned with  the ISKO International fees of €60 for individual membership, €15 for student, €25 for retired membership and €120 for corporate membership.

Payment "per calendar year" means that if you join or renew at any time from January to September (inclusive) your subscription covers you until December of the same year. If you join in the period October - December, however, as a special concession we will accept payment of one annual fee to cover your membership right through to December of the following year.

The fees include access to the online edition of the journal Knowledge Organization, although you may choose also to receive a paper copy for an additional £20.

NOTE: to qualify for the student or retired rate, members should not be gainfully employed for more than 20% of their time, i.e. about 1 day per week averaged over a year
  • individual: £60
  • student £15
  • retired: £25
  • corporate: £120

Your membership fee entitles you to the following benefits:

  • online access to the Knowledge Organization journal (vols. 2000 onwards)
  • attendance of ISKO UK events at reduced rates, often free
  • discounts on participation in conferences of ISKO and its regional Chapters
  • 20% discounts on ISKO publications and all other library and information science titles published by Ergon Verlag
  • The opportunity to join networking sessions with leading members of the profession
  • for corporate members, an unlimited number of staff can attend ISKO UK meetings and conferences at member's rates
