You are in:  Home » Membership


Membership is open to all individuals who have a scientific, practical or general interest in any aspect of snow and ice.

Join the IGS as a new member or renew your existing membership.

If you are already registered with the IGS you can amend your details online.

New for 2018 – we have reduced our membership rates!!!! We hope that this will encourage all current members to renew and also encourage former members who have let their memberships lapse to renew them.

We are also offering 2 year memberships at the new lower rates (for 2018 and 2019), so if you'd like to take advantage please email and we can set this up for you.

All our memberships are online only and benefits include:

  1. All current members receive a 10% discount on ‘author processing charges’ (APCs) for papers submitted to the Journal of Glaciology and Annals of Glaciology produced by our publishing partner, Cambridge University Press (CUP).
  2. Online access to our newsletter and ICE via our website and the Journal of Glaciology and Annals of Glaciology via CUP's website, Cambridge Core.
  3. Where applicable, reduced registration fees for IGS symposia.
  4. Reduced rates for hard copy issues of the Journal of Glaciology, Annals of Glaciology and ICE. To make an order please email
