Become a member of Pluto Journals and support Open Access

The Pluto Journals Membership programme is about to take off! As all Pluto Journals transitioned to Open Access, Pluto Journals decided to create a membership programme which brings together individuals’ passion about research, activism, and policy to build communities around the journals to affect change. Five of the Journals took up the programme immediately with enthusiasm, namely the Journals with a clear focus on Fair TradeDisability and Social Justice, Cuban Studies, Arab Studies and Political Economy. The five membership Journals are aiming to raise funds to develop their important work on the topics of sustainability and equality, through webinars, scholarships, annual conferences and much more.

Stephanie and her team are a delight to work with and we look forward to a long future together.
