Members of the ACEI will be part of a network of scholars, researchers and practitioners interested in advancing cultural economics. Benefits of membership include:

  • subscription to the Journal of Cultural Economics
  • discounted rates of conferences and events organised by the ACEI
  • being part of the ACEI mailing list so that you hear about relevant news and events to cultural economics, such as announcements about conferences, special issues with journals (note: contact details for this mailing list are not shared outside of used for any other purposes than those associated with the ACEI)
  • eligibility to run for office to become an ACEI office-bearer (e.g. board member, President) and vote in ACEI elections

Membership options

There are different individual membership options that vary by length (1, 2, 4 and 6 years) and type (reduced or full). The longer you join for the bigger the discount. Also to save money, reduced options are recommended. Reduced memberships provide the same benefits as full memberships with the only difference being that full members get a print version as well as e-access to the journal while reduced members have e-access only.

Membership is on a calendar year basis, so for example, if you take out a 1-year membership in September 2020 that would expire the same date as if you took out a membership in  January 2020, i.e., the expiry date would be 31 December 2020.

Prices are expressed in US Dollars.

When you join or renew your membership you should receive an automated email from Paypal. Also within one week, you should receive a further email from the ACEI confirming your membership details. If you do not receive an email from the ACEI please contact the ACEI Treasurer/SecretaryBronwyn Coate at
