Additional Information on Individual Membership Benefits

SEM Membership Print-Free Option
A Membership Print-Free Option is available at the same dues levels that apply to regular print memberships. If you select this option, you will no longer receive a print copy of the journal Ethnomusicology, a paper membership renewal mailing, or other SEM paper correspondence. All correspondence will be sent to you electronically and, as is the case with regular print memberships, you will have online access to Ethnomusicology (from 1953 to the current issue) through JSTOR’s Journal Hosting Program. If you choose the Print-Free Option, you will need to renew your membership each year in order to retain access to past content. Hard copies of past volumes will no longer be sitting on your bookshelves!
