INoGS is primarily an organization based on research and scholarship. Thus we require an institutional affiliation. However, if you do not currently have institutional affiliation and still want to be considered for membership, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our membership fees are 28 GBP/42 Euros/ 51 USD. Note that applications for membership received before 31 December will be considered eligible for our upcoming elections even through membership will not be processed until January 2015.
