Journal Prices for Members

Our monthly Weather journal is included with your Society membership and will be delivered to your door each month. All members can also access Weather online or via the app. There is also the option to receive Weather online-only, saving you 20% on your annual membership fees. 

From January 2017, we are now offering all members online-only access to all of the Society’s journals available at an additional cost of £10 per year, to those members who wish to receive them. This includes unlimited access to all online articles from journals including Quarterly Journal, International Journal of Climatology and Meteorological Applications, with the equivalent value of subscribing to each journal individually costing over £200.

Please Note:

1) Members (new and current) who chose to receive Weather online only, can receive 20% off their membership (full-paying members only – not those already receiving a discount i.e. students and reciprocals so no multiple discounts)

2) Members can choose to access all our journals online only for an extra £10 per year

3) Members can chose to pay for their membership in one go or by quarterly direct debit

If you would like to add this to your membership package, this can be done at any time throughout the year; please just email or call the Society on 0118 956 8500 and speak to one of our team.
